Winter wedding flowers may not come in an overly abundant selection but they do produce some of the most dramatic wedding flower arrangements of any season.
I always recommend you start with a budget to keep things in perspective. The average couple spends over $2,000 on floral arrangements for the special day. With so many extravagant options it’s very important that you decide early on what a must-have is and where you are flexible.
Unless you already have a firm idea of what you want, then you’ll want to look at numerous arrangements to see what's possible for winter wedding flowers.
Meet with your community florist to see what's available locally in your region. This helps to keep costs down and they may be able to give your more ideas you hadn’t yet considered. Another option growing in popularity is to use an online florist to make your purchases.
Getting married in the winter usually means that you intend to have at least some photos taken outside with a snowy backdrop. Ensure your bouquets have a fabulous burst of color to avoid disappearing into the surroundings.
The amaryllis is striking on its own with some simple greenery or combined with roses and feathers for sophisticated Christmas wedding bouquets.
Increasingly popular are blue wedding flowers and none are more perfect for winter wedding bouquets then the blue hydrangea. Depending on the style of the bouquet and what other flowers the hydrangea is paired with, it can go from laid-back casual to modern elegance. The choice is yours! There are two flower arrangements in hydrangeas. Mophead flowers are large round flowerheads resembling pom-poms and lacecap flowers bear round, flat flowerheads. Both are magnificent.
White hydrangeas are currently incredibly popular. Pink and blue are more difficult to obtain during winter and that is reflected in the cost.
White roses with holly and evergreen define the quintessential Christmas wedding bouquet. Go large and showy for your own and a trimmed down version for your bridesmaid bouquets. So long as you are prepared to pay the price, most florists can locate nearly every flower in every color you could possibly want. And seasonal picks, well placed ornaments, bows and bells can transform any blossom into suitable winter or Christmas wedding flowers.
The Magnolia, known for their showy, fragrant flower, make a bold statement in your bridal bouquet and you won't need many of these to give a magnificent effect. Ensure you like the scent before choosing this one.
