WeddingHour’s Best in Bloom concludes with its final chapter: the most stunning flowers for a winter wonderland wedding.
Brrr! Can you feel that chill in the air? Winter truly has arrived.
With December now upon us (where has that crept up from?!), there are many winter weddings in sight. From fabulous festive themes to New Year’s celebrations, it really is a magical season in which to get married.
Though frost may be laying on the ground, and there’s a promise of some snow, it doesn’t mean that your winter wedding can’t be filled with beautiful blooms. Therefore, there’s no better time to welcome you to the fourth and final instalment of our Best in Bloom series: bringing you our pick of the best flowers for your winter wedding.
Some of your favourite flowers may be blooming in the summer months, but you’ll still be spoilt for choice with these stunning winter arrangements. Here at WeddingHour, we’ve picked our top five flowers to inspire you; take the list along to your florist, and they can help you bring to life those wonderful wintery blooms:
It’s almost impossible to conjure the image of winter wedding without thinking of the Red Rose. Synonymous with love and romance, it’s the perfect choice for a Valentine’s Day or Christmas wedding. Statement and elegant: you can’t go wrong!
Bouvardia are small clusters of tubular flowers. They make the perfect addition to a winter bouquet: take a look at the beautiful blends with eucharis and roses in the examples above. You could also use them alone to make small flower girl posies, or delicate centrepieces and reception table décor.
You may not have thought of including Pine Boughs in your wedding flowers; however, for a winter celebration, especially at Christmastime, they make a wonderful, statement addition. Festive, and beautifully scented, take inspiration from the above to show you how to style within a bouquet or as stand-out chair décor at your reception.
Agapanthus are large, striking flowers; you may have heard them referred to as the African Lilly. If you’re looking to make a strong statement, this is the bloom for you. However, their season typically ends in December so, if you’re having a January or February wedding, check with your florist if they’ll be able to source them.
Is there a flower to better symbolise the sparkle of winter than Dusty Miller? With its silvery-grey foliage, the lacy leaves look stunning within a bouquet or as wintery wedding buttonholes. We love the blend of the Dusty Miller and Peony in this Kate Said Yes bouquet.
We hope you’ve enjoyed the Best in Bloom season; whatever season you’ve chosen for your wedding, we hope we’ve inspired you with the most stunning flowers for elegant, luxurious and statement arrangements.
