UPDATED OCTOBER 2019
So, you’re probably planning an Autumn / Winter wedding and wondering what colours to choose.
Maybe you opted for this time of the year to tie the knot because you're drawn to the rich colours that autumn brings.

Do your bouquet colours have to be totally different just because of the season?
Not necessarily, but nature has a way of changing things up a little this time of year, therefore the colours of the foliage and berries on some plants appear to just come to life during the Autumn / Fall season, showing off their russets, reds and flame oranges to maximum effect.
The absolutely fantastic fact about autumn is you’re going to find such rich colour coming to you in the form of not just flowers, but seeds, pods and berries. My advice would be to take full advantage of the full spectrum of colour available, and combine the rich with the muted.
A CLOSER LOOK AT 10 SEEDS, PODS AND BERRIES
1. Scabiosa Pod heads do not add a rich colour to a brides bouquet, but they definitely bring a wonderful texture.
2. Poppy Seed Heads make a big bold statement with their spherical appearance.
3. Seeded Eugalyptus come in green, yellow,and white.
4. Hypericum Berries available in green, yellow, pink, varying shades of red, ivory and burgundy
5. Snowberries come in clusters of red, pink, or white. Available between August and October in the UK. If you are looking for pink berries there is a beautiful variety called 'Magical Treasure' you should look out for.
6. Juniper berries are quite different from a lot of other berries due to their dark purple colour.
7. Rosehip commonly come in red or orange, but you will find purple and black out there as well.
8. Crocosmia seed heads come in mottled shades of greens, red and purple.
9. Viburnum Berries come in clusters of different shades of reds and purples.
10. Agapanthus seed heads are dome shaped clusters which come in colours ranging from green to almost black.
So much colour and not a flower mentioned yet!
I love, love, love flowers but at this time of the year I would much rather see lots and lots of greenery and berries with maybe just a select few flowers in a brides bouquet.
I would still look to a beautiful, large billowy rose, though also include something like a Scabiosa flower too.
