Winter wedding flower colors. When we think of winter two things immediately come to mind; Christmas and snow. And along with these, sparkling icicles, twinkling trees and shiny baubles. So the typical winter wedding colour palette normally includes whites, greens, reds, silvers and golds. But winter brides don’t necessarily need to stick to this theme; icey and bright blues can also work well, particuarly in modern wedding flower designs, or alternatively dusky grey-green tones mixed with creams and browns can create a warm, rustic feel.
There is still a huge choice of flowers and plants too, particularly nowadays when many popular things like roses and carnations are available year-round. Popular winter wedding flowers in season include the dramatic looking amaryllis, which can make a stunning reception display just in itself, plus gladioli which are great for tall reception table, pew end and pedestal designs, and more delicate flowers such as anemone, ranunculus, hydrangeas and sweet peas in March that look lovely in arrangements, bouquets and buttonholes alike.
Camelias are also great for winter weddings, whether as a foliage filler or main flower, since their large round flowers are great in bouquets, but their shiny green foliage looks wonderful in all kinds of arrangements too. White calla lilies are popular for winter wedding bouquets, brides and bridesmaids bouquets as they can create a dramatic impact simply used alone or combined with a range of flowers and materials.
Hydrangea wedding bouquets. Equally, hydrangea and tuberose can be used to create impact too; hydrangeas are still available in a variety of colours and are brilliant for bridal bouquet flowers and table designs, and tuberosa is perfect for taller displays.
As secondary materials, holly, mistletoe, firs and ferns immediately spring to mind, but other materials that really help accent winter bridal bouquet flowers and floral designs include grey-green lambs ear and dusty miller, plus flowering ivy, berried eucalpytus, silver-white brunia, viburnum berries, pine cones and boughs. Berries and fern leaves are perfect for corsages and buttonholes, while large branches of holly, mistletoe, ivy and pine can be used to create larger arrangements for the reception or church.
When decorating the venue or church, the winter bride is spoilt for choice; from cosy or Christmassy settings, to breathtakingly modern winter wonderlands. Popular and more traditional arrangements in winter often incorporate candles, candleabras, fairy lights, garlands and Christmas trees, but there is so much more you can do. Logs and baskets, large wagon wheels and branches of natural or white birch can be used in standalone arrangements or table centrepieces, and glass and crystal are wonderful for modern designs.
Glass vases can be filled with snow and candleabras or garlands draped with hanging crystals or lights. Mirrors and uplighting can be added to table centres for added impact, which all combines to create a magical winter wonderland atmosphere.
