When we think of winter wedding flowers, we often jump to an all-white color scheme, while in fact there is a wide range of flowers in many colors available in winter to suit any floral design vision.  Amaryllis, Anemones, Orchids, Hydrangeas, and Peonies are some of the most popular winter blooms, as well as many varieties of Roses.

Even if you’re committed to an all-white winter wedding, mixing and matching shades of white can make for a stunning array of tones, textures and shapes, from antique ivories to soft creams to classic white-as-snow.  Silvery accents of Dusty Miller or Silver Brunia make for beautiful finishes for a monochrome winter wonderland look.

In today’s Bouquet Recipe, we used all-white flowers and a touch of greenery to give a classic, white bridal bouquet a fresh look. If this style inspires you, ask your wedding florist for a multi-dimensional bouquet with dramatic texture.

White flowers will never go out of style for weddings, and they look beautiful for any season. When sticking to a monochromatic color palette, the key is to get creative with texture and shapes.

Natural Beauty at Liberty Warehouse

Romantic flowers and rustic touches struck a perfect balance at this Brooklyn waterfront wedding.  You might remember bride Jennifer’s natural, dimensional bouquet from this recent bouquet recipe featuring blush La Perla roses, cream dahlias and cascading jasmine vines.

Vows took place under a stunning, squared archway of curly willow branches, adorned with cascading greenery and studded with clusters of roses and hydrangea. As with the bouquet, the look was natural and rustic with lots of dimension and texture.

Mason jars, accented with burlap and navy-blue satin ribbon, held simple clusters of baby’s breath to decorate chairs. Wooden boxes held lush blooms for low reception-table centerpieces.

Stunning bride Carolyn could not have chosen a more fitting venue for her elegant celebration. Classic wedding flowers, in a timeless palette of blush-and-white, were designed to be both traditional and on trend. Ranunculus joined white garden roses and blush Keira roses in a compact, rounded bridal bouquet with fully wrapped stems. Bridesmaids, wearing a striking shade of royal blue, carried snow-white Tibet roses and ranunculus, while the sweet flower girl carried a delicate nosegay of blush roses.

Palest Blush Bouquet at Battery Gardens

Bouquet Recipe Battery Gardens_Melissa Kruse

It’s no secret: we love blush wedding flowers. And creating this textured, romantic bridal bouquet, in the palest palette of blush and ivory, was pure pleasure. Beautiful bride Adriana wanted flowers with a classic but fresh look. Her bouquet was softly rounded and dimensional, with stems partially wrapped in ivory satin ribbon.

We chose several of our favorite specialty roses:dusty-blush Quicksand roses, warmer blush Keira roses, and pale-blush La Perla roses. Using a variations of a similar color adds depth, even to light-colored bouquets. Ranunculus, spray roses and garden roses, brought cream, ivory and white into the mix. A few sprigs of seeded eucalyptus accented the flowers.
