Winter weddings are magical. There’s no other event that can reflect a season as dramatically as an affair themed towards the icy colors and ambiance unique to this time of year. Although there are no color restrictions for a winter wedding bouquet, palettes often lean more towards the mauves, deep greens, reds and aubergine, which can be accented with those gorgeous winter whites and just a touch of pink or blue.
Of course, you’ll be considering the colors in your wedding décor, including the table linens and the bridal party ensembles in your decision. Also consider the glittering beauty of the world outside your window when thinking of ways to bring the wonder of the season into your décor.
Wow Your Guests with Beautiful Winter Wedding Bridal Bouquets
If you’re considering a larger winter wedding flower
arrangement for your bouquet, consider velvety amaryllis blossoms…perfectly bloomed and coupled with Hypericum berries, offset by lacy sprigs of arborvitae. The berries will glow like garnets sprinkled amongst the foliage and will add an elegant and sophisticated look to your arrangement.
For winter flowers
that are truly unique, try replicating the outdoor flavor of winter by carrying an arrangement of juniper boughs and the saturated green of aborivitae. By adding the delicate white of foliage with tiny white blossoms (think: snowdrops) and the sparkle of small pinecones dipped in glitter, you will create a stunning, cascading one-of-a-kind winter wedding bouquet.
Of course, winter white is always a classic, especially when you mix some miniature calla lilies, lilies of the valley and Scabiosa with some crystal beads and accent with threads of silver running through it. Classic…glamorous…timeless.
Prefer golden highlights over silver? Why not try combining the lovely yellow-greens of Cymbidium orchids, Gloriosa lilies and Bupleururm and gold-tipped cockscomb for a truly awe-inspiring bouquet. Thread some gold beading by hand through the center for a golden, glimmering look.
Exceptional Winter Wedding Flower Bouquets
For the most dramatic of looks, there’s the option of a black and white bouquet. White hydrangeas with their lush configuration can be peppered with glossy, black-beaded silk flowers and are gathered at the base with a soft, black thick velvet ribbon.
Finally, for a flowing, nostalgic look, a gorgeous wedding bouquet could include Casablanca Lilies which can be entwined with some vintage lace and miniature white roses, then wrap the stems with more of the vintage lace, left streaming down for a romantic, timeless look.
Whether you want to match a bouquet with your winter wedding centerpieces
or go out on a limb with a unique design, your winter wedding bouquet is sure to be the perfect accessory to the most beautiful bride on her most cherished day.
