Winter weddings are becoming more popular these days, opening a window of bold, beautiful and colorful ideas! Flowers are a classic way to accent wintery hues along with helping to create a romantically warm atmosphere. Whether you have the support of a professional florist, or plan to create a unique DIY bouquet, here are some lovely winter floral tips to get you started.

 

Seasonal Colors

First, keep the season in mind and know your theme. Are you creating a winter wonderland or tying the knot in a Christmas motif? Winter hues in deep and rich colors can beautifully accent your ensemble and fill the room with vibrancy. When fashioning any floral arrangement, allow one bold color to be the focal point and tie in a few accents. Steer away from incorporating too much color, especially in the bridal bouquet – simple is better in keeping your key shade color prominent.

Popular holiday themed wedding colors include red, green, silver and gold. If you are planning a different winter melody – winter white, ivory, deep blues, and purples are also very stylish.

Types of Flowers

Similar to color selections, it is best to choose seasonal flowers to form your arrangements. They will look healthy and you won’t pay a premium. Poinsettias are perfect decorations and centerpieces, but for the bridal bouquet here are some popular winter flower options:

  • Roses
  • Carnations
  • Tulips
  • Gardenias
  • Star of Bethlehem
  • Orchids
  • LiliesTo add texture to a bouquet try: freesia, holly, rosemary, and baby’s breath.
Accents

Accents are essential for adding flare to your floral arrangements. Lit candles look beautiful in the middle of decorative flower table arrangement and decor, plus they add extra warmth. Shimmery ribbons and bows, or velvet wraps are beautiful seasonal accents.

Consider including hearts or popberries to help your arrangement burst – the more they sparkle the better! Stay away from over accessorizing; you don’t want your flowers to take away from you.

 

Selecting your flowers is a very exciting part of planning your wedding and choosing just the right colors and types to fit your winter wedding theme will help your special day look and feel just perfect!
