Wedding flowers have been part of making weddings beautiful and romantic with their language of love since the beginning of time. Some couples believe their choices with winter wedding flowers are limited. Contrary to that belief, there are many beautiful winter blooms. There are several classic flowers like garden roses, peonies and anemones during the winter. This is also a good season to get orchids, champagne roses, magenta tulips and some hyacinths. If you are planning a winter wedding, you will want to get to know some winter wedding flowers.
Amaryllis are Beautiful Winter Wedding Flowers
Amaryllis always seem to come to mind when we think of winter wedding flowers. Just like tulips and daffodils, these little plants begin as a bulb, and produce beautiful flowers in late winter. Amaryllis are usually forced to bloom earlier in winter for the holidays. We typically see them in different shades of red and white; however, they bloom in a variety of pinks, oranges, yellows and shades of purple. They create beautiful wedding bouquets.
Hypericum berries are a favorite among florists for bridal bouquets. Not only are they believed to bring you luck on your wedding day, but they are plentiful in a variety of colors, such as pink, red, yellow, green, white, and even black. They provide contrast and texture to bouquets and floral arrangements.
Add Romance to Your Winter Wedding Flowers
Sweet peas are all about the romance with their delicate petals. Their seductive and sweet scent of intense orange-jasmine-honey make them the perfect addition to your wedding arch and bridal bouquet. It is no wonder that sweet peas are a favorite among winter wedding flowers.
Camellias are Exquisite Winter Wedding Flowers
The layered petals of camellias add texture and beauty to any bouquet with their exquisite blooms that burst into vibrant shades of pink and red. They make a perfect addition to centerpieces in the reception area, since they lack a strong scent. It is important not to place fragrant flowers near your dining area that could confuse the taste of food and affect the dining experience. These flowers have a light scent of lemon. Some smell like a hint of jasmine. These winter wedding flowers symbolize love, affection and admiration.
Anemones are Dramatic
Anemones are dramatic winter wedding flowers. Their blooms are elegant and bold with white petals and deep contrasting black centers. They have a modern and luxurious vibe. Anemones are commonly paired with calla lilies to create a sophisticated winter bouquet.
Ranunculus are Charming
Ranunculus have delicate tissue thin petals and rose-like blossoms that vary from cream and pale yellow to apricot, pink, orange, red and burgundy. These small winter wedding flowers symbolize charm and attractiveness. Ranunculus will pair with almost any flower or greenery, especially peonies, garden roses, anemones and tulips. The whimsical and curvy stems can be wired by using floral tape or by inserting wire through the end of the stem to make it easy to shape.
Gardenias Have Elegant Blooms
Gardenias are tender evergreen shrubs that produce beautiful and fragrant winter wedding flowers. The large blooms create elegant centerpieces, bouquets and boutonnieres. They are perfect for floating in a glass vase with candles. It is important to note that these fragile blooms are without stems, making them a slight challenge to work with. They must be wired or glued.
Tulips are Winter Wedding Flowers Too
Tulips are commonly thought of as spring blooms; however, these romantic flowers begin blooming in the winter. They create elegant centerpieces and bouquets. They can be paired with a variety of roses and other winter wedding flowers, playing a dramatic role with dimension and texture. They can be a focal flower and stand alone.
