A winter wonderland wedding can be quite romantic. The stark beauty of the bare trees, theÂ crispness of the white snow â€“ which will clearly go with your attire â€“ the winter is a lovely time ofÂ year to have a wedding. When it comes to the flowers for a winter affair, you might be thinkingÂ that you are limited on your options. After all, this season isnâ€™t exactly known for its blooms; orÂ is it? There are tons of fantastic flowers that you can use for your wedding during the winterÂ season. And, if you think outside the box, you can even incorporate some items into yourÂ arrangements that arenâ€™t necessarily flowers, but that certainly speak to the winter season.
If you are wondering about floral arrangement ideas for your winter wedding, here are someÂ inspirations that will certainly make a dramatic impact:
Holly is at the height of its season in the winter, and it will make a stunning statementÂ when used in your floral arrangements. Imagine how eye-catching the dark green of the leavesÂ and those red berries will be when they are set against a backdrop of white.
Evergreen: How about incorporating some evergreen into your arrangements? You can haveÂ your bouquet lined with an arrangement of evergreen needles, and you can also feature sprigsÂ of evergreen in your dÃ©cor. The color will be breathtaking, and the aroma will be intoxicating.
Poinsettias: Make the traditional Christmas flower the focal point of your winter wedding floralÂ arrangements. These blooms come in either red, white or pink and really are quite dramatic.Â Perhaps you can carry a bouquet of white poinsettias and your bridesmaids can carry bouquetsÂ of red or pink, or vice versa. Either way, these flowers will certainly make a bold impact for yourÂ winter wedding.
Pinecones: They may not be flowers, per say, but they are floral in that they come from aÂ tree. Include some pinecones in your centerpieces and in your bouquet, and maybe have yourÂ bridesmaids carry pomander balls that feature a collection of glistening pinecones (spray themÂ with glitter so that they capture the light).
Babyâ€™s Breath: This delicate flower is often thought of as an accent to larger, showier blooms,Â but when used on its own, it can really make a bold statement. And, for the winter season, aÂ collection of babyâ€™s breath resembles snow. So, how about creating arrangements that featureÂ nothing but this tiny, yet impactful flower?
Red Carnations: This is another flower that often doesnâ€™t get the recognition that it deserves.Â Commonly used as a â€œfill inâ€ flower, the carnation really makes a bold statement when it standsÂ alone â€“ especially when they are in a dramatic color, like red. Red is a wonderful color for aÂ winter wedding, as it works around Christmas time, is ideal for Valentineâ€™s Day and just makesÂ such a visual impact when paired against the color white. Make arrangements of red carnationsÂ stand out even more by adding in some white stephanotis flowers.
Stephanotis: Speaking of this flower, it is worth mentioning as using not only as an additionalÂ flower in a bouquet, but in an arrangement on its own. Like babyâ€™s breath, this star-shapedÂ flower calls to mind the snow, which is so fitting for the winter. And, the star shape is just soÂ whimsical, making it a perfect choice for a wedding.
When it comes to floral arrangements for your winter wedding, you really do have an amazingÂ selection of flowers to choose from.
