The romance and intrigue of a winter wedding are timeless, and the cool backdrop of the winter season offers some spectacular options for flowers and bouquets. From classic roses that invoke passion to delicate calla lilies that offer whimsy and beauty, winter wedding flowers are as creative and inspired as the brides who walk down the aisle on their special day.
Using Roses in Your Winter Wedding
Roses will always look at home in a wedding bouquet, and you’ve got a few options for using roses in your wedding party’s bouquets and boutonnieres. Depending on the color of the roses and the style of the bouquet, you may choose roses that are already open or roses that look as though they were just clipped from a rose bush.
Ivory and pale yellow roses look spectacular when they’re already open, and pair wonderfully with accent flowers like lily grass, baby’s breath, or even scented herbs. Roses that look like tight buds offer a fun opportunity to use accents like beads, crystals, or other delicate objects and are the perfect option for hand tied bouquets.
Beautiful Seasonal Elements
Blossoming flowers and verdant leaves aren’t the only features you may include in your winter wedding flowers, and the season presents many fun seasonal beauties like holly and pinecones. Even if the weather on the wedding day isn’t actually filled with snow and ice, the bouquet can certainly evoke the feeling of freshly fallen snow on a misty wintery morning.
Dramatic Colors and Vibrancy
The classic winter wedding colors of red and white will never go out of style, but a winter wedding can also feel beautiful with colors like deep purple, magenta, and even turquoise. Mimic the deep shade of an evergreen alongside royal blues that feel like a starlit winter night. The perfect flowers for a lively winter wedding may include calla lilies, ranunculus, and clematis.
A wedding day is one of the most important days of a couple’s life, and one of the visuals that everyone seems to remember about the day is the bride’s bouquet. Winter weddings give the bride an exciting opportunity to get as traditional or unconventional as she wishes.
