Tying the knot during winter doesn’t mean that your bouquet has to be made up of pine needles and bare twigs. There are plenty of flowers available during the wintertime that can help you create a bouquet that’s romantic, fresh and beautiful. Check out these ideas for winter wedding bouquets that you’re sure to love:
Include seasonal elements
Take advantage of some of the natural elements of winter, like pinecones, bright holly and evergreen boughs. Mixing in these rustic items with blooms like lilies, peonies and silver brunia can create a bouquet that is perfectly on trend for your whimsical winter nuptials. Here are some other non-floral add-ins you can consider putting in your bouquet:
- Dusty miller (comes with a silvery white color that’s perfect for winter)
- Berry sprigs
- Fruit covered in sparkling sugar
- Brunia berries
- Cedar boughs
- Cotton sprigs
Keep it neutral
A combination of neutral hues is far from boring. In fact, it can really evoke a glamorous and sophisticated ambiance on your big day. Mix and match white and cream-colored blooms like stephanotis, roses and peonies. Intertwine greenery, pinecones, bare branches and silver brunia for some added texture to break up the flowers.
Add in color
Would you rather incorporate bright colors into your bouquet? Winter wedding flowers don’t have to be white or gray. Opt for a romantic pink-themed arrangement complete with dusty pink peonies, garden roses and ranunculus. Wrap a pink satin ribbon or some lace around the stems for an added touch of sweetness.
If you want to stick to a Christmas theme, arrange a combination of bright red roses, berries and orchids. Add in some greenery with pine boughs, ivy or succulents. Incorporate other dark shades as well, like dark purple hydrangeas and some viburnum berries, for a stunning statement. Dark hues always play well with a white wedding dress.
There’s truly no color combination that’s off-limits. As long as your bouquet matches your wedding theme and palette, you’re sure to be able to find flowers and add-ins that match.
If you want to stick with blooms that are only in-season during winter, you certainly have your pick. Here are a few of the most popular buds that are in season during the month of December:
- Calla lilies
- Lilium casablanca
- Paper whites
