But with that said, most all wedding pros, especially florists, really encourage brides and grooms to consider seasonal flowers as they are often the freshest, most vibrant varieties available, at the best budget-friendly prices, and most importantly, a more eco-friendly choice as they are typically available from local or regional farms. While the winter season offers the least amount of floral and fauna, there are still beautiful choices for any type of couple… and with that, I'm so unbelievably excited about our newest quarterly series, In Season, in collaboration with vendor fam Becky of Roost Flowers! We will cover winter, spring, summer, and fall, so get ready!
Becky has taken four distinct styles and whipped up a wintry bouquet for each one! All seasonal, all very doable for any cold weather bride or groom. I'll let her take it from here!
No matter which season your wedding is in, you have wonderful options in a variety of budgets, so while we are sharing great ideas, the most important thing you can do is prepare for your consultation with your floral designer. Bring color swatches, communicate your vision with sample photos, share your favorite flowers and styles, and then above all, trust your florist to work his or her magic when they go to choose the freshest, most beautiful flowers for your respective season.
OPTIONS FOR WINTER FLOWERS
Berries (Holly, Privet, Tallow, and Viburnum)
Greenery (Cedar, Pine, Camellia, Gardenia, Ruscus, Pittosporum, and Magnolia)
Plants (Succulents and air plants)
Consider the natural reds and greens if you're a December bride. Calla lilies, evergreen, amaryllis, garden roses, berries, and magnolia leaves can give your florals a festive look without being cliche.
The whites and creams of flowers are perfect for that timeless, classic wedding day. Thankfully, it's one of the most abundant colors to get any season, so to get this elegant look, mention to your florist: anemones, garden roses, tulips, daffodils, and greenery.
It may seem like a summer vibe, but boho chic can still be done seasonally and appropriately. By having succulents, air plants, kale, and other greenery, you can channel that gorgeous laid-back theme in winter.
Who says there's no color in winter? Not any florist! If you love vibrant and diverse hues, you have plenty of options with anemones, ranunculus, sweet peas, berries, dusty miller, and greenery depending on your wedding's color scheme.
