Jillian’s Sangria and Fall Color Wedding Inspiration Board

“Hi there! I love your inspiration board! I have seen so many wonderful ideas for flowers and would love your opinion for my wedding this September 2010.

The girls are all wearing sangria from David’s Bridal. I love the sangria color for the fall and would love to include other colors into the bouqets to make them “pop” maybe purples, greens, yellows and even orange? I would love to see the ideas you come up with.

I kinda like the look of a medium to larger bouqet for my girls and a slightly larger bouqet for myself so if you could also tell me how many flowers you recommend of each that would be great. Thanks again for all your help…I am excited to see what you create :)

Thank you so much!

Jillian, I created your inspiration board in all the colors you suggested as well as a few that match the sangria colored dresses. I think this is a beautiful color palette — bright violet/sangria, orange, yellow, and green — all bold fall colors that look gorgeous together! You really could do any combination of the flowers on your board, but how about making the bouquets with orange roses, green spider dahlia, violet dahlia, and yellow blossom accents. For the bridesmaids bouquets, to be a larger bouquet use roughly 10-12 open bloom flowers (not including the smaller accent flowers should you use them). For your bouquet, you can double the amount, or go a bit smaller by using 16-18 full bloom flowers. I hope this helps!
