Depending on the region you live in, winter can be a difficult time to find fresh, local flowers. However, with a little bit of creativity and planning, you can have a beautiful winter wedding with flowers that are both seasonal and meaningful. Here are a few tips on how to choose wedding flowers in winter.
One way to incorporate meaning into your winter wedding flowers is to choose blooms that are in season. Seasonal flowers are not only less expensive, but they are also typically more resilient and easier to care for. In most cases, local florists will be able to source seasonal flowers from nearby growers. Some popular winter wedding flowers include amaryllis, anemones, carnations, ranunculus, and tulips.
Another way to add a touch of winter whimsy to your wedding flowers is to incorporate blooming branches into your arrangements. flowering branches like forsythia, quince, and witch hazel add both height and texture to bouquets and centerpieces. Not to mention, they smell wonderful! If you’re looking for something truly unique, try incorporating blooming branches into your ceremony decor by suspending them overhead or lining the aisle with them.Your guests will be amazed.
Last but not least, don’t forget about the beauty of evergreen foliage! Incorporating evergreens into your winter wedding flower arrangements adds a touch of elegance and sophistication. Evergreens also lend themselves well to wintry themes like “Woodland” or “Nordic.” Some of our favorite evergreen plants for weddings include boxwood, cedar, eucalyptus, holly, magnolia leaves, pinecones, and rosemary. All of these materials can be easily sourced from your local florist or floral designer.
