Winter Wedding Flowers We Love
The winter wedding season is upon us and there’s nothing quite as beautiful as a winter bouquet. While brides might worry that there aren’t enough options or color variety during this season, there’s no need to fear. There are plenty of options to choose from to find the perfect winter wedding flowers to suit your style, wedding venue, and color scheme. Read on to find out which flowers are in bloom during this season and how you can incorporate them into your special day.
Best Winter Blooms
There are plenty of flowers that are only in bloom during the winter season and others that are able to bloom all year long. Some of our favorites include:
- Sweet Peas
Each of these flowers has its own unique beauty and would make a great addition to a bouquet, boutonniere, table centerpiece, or ceremony arrangement. Top of the look with some fresh filler stems like Queen Anne’s Lace, Statice, Solidago, or Waxflower.
Coordinate Your Colors
When people think of winter, the first colors that come to mind are usually white and blue. Although all-white weddings are classy and stand the test of time, you don’t need to feel limited by the colors of the season when it comes to designing your floral arrangements. In fact, you can even draw inspiration from the heat of other seasons and opt for flaming red flowers to make your bouquet really pop. For a more subtle, subdued aesthetic, choose muted colors and tie them all together with accents like the green-grey of eucalyptus leaves.
Where to Place Your Floral Displays
When you’re searching for the perfect wedding venue, you probably spent plenty of time imaging where each and every beautiful flower would go. It can be a little overwhelming to think about all of the places your beautiful blooms could go but focus on where guests will see them and enjoy them the most. This typically means draping flowers across the altar so you can be surrounded by the lush elegance as you say your vows or on the table at the reception as an eye-catching centerpiece.
And of course, don’t forget the basket of flower petals for your flower girl!
Keeping Your Bouquets Beautiful
For the frugal bride, making sure your flowers last as long as possible is an important part of the day. Nobody wants to go to a wedding when the flowers are already drooping five minutes into the ceremony. To keep your arrangements looking fresh and lively, remember that hydration and darkness are your best defenses.
When possible try to keep the flowers in a cold, dimly lit room for as long as possible before bringing them out into the room. Additionally, adding a splash of lemon-lime soda to your vase can help keep the flowers perky all day long. With proper care, you can even think about using the same flowers for your wedding shower and the big day!
