Just because you are getting married during the coldest time of the year doesn’t mean that you can’t carry a stunning floral bouquet down the aisle! In fact, winter offers many types of flowers that reflect the beauty of the season, which can be designed in a bevy of styles and color palettes ranging from all white to rich wine and berry hues. For the winter bride getting ready to tie the knot, here’s all the inspiration you need to create the prettiest bouquet for your wedding day.
Due to its delicate appearance, the anemone symbolized fragility and anticipation in the language of flowers. The anemone’s unique beauty made it a muse to Monet and Matisse and each master painter used the bloom as inspiration in their art.
Just one look and you can see why the anemone is one of the most popular florals of the season. The paper-like petals and dark, mysterious center look absolutely gorgeous in wedding floral arrangements. Available in vibrant red, pink, purple, yellow, it’s a great choice for when you want vibrant pops of color. But for winter bouquets, we love to see white anemones paired with light colored florals and emerald hued greenery.
The ranunculus’ bloom unfolds in layer up layer of crepe paper-like petals to stunning effect. The flower grows in just about every color imaginable from white, soft pink and yellow to deep red, burgundy, and purple.
The intricate petal pattern adds interesting texture and depth to wedding arrangements. Pair ranunculus with garden roses and anemone in berry jewel tones and white to create a voluminous, jaw-dropping bouquet perfect for the bride with bold style.
According to Greek mythology, even Venus, the goddess of love, beauty, and desire, was jealous of the calla lily’s exquisite appearance! Recognized for its unique, trumpet shape, the bloom grows in an array of colors such as white, pink, burgundy, yellow, and green.
Calla Lilies are an ideal choice for the bride who wants her blooms to express romantic elegance. Let the calla lily’s simple beauty take center stage and have it be your only bouquet flower. Or make a dramatic statement walking down the aisle by pairing moody, dark plum calla lilies with red ranunculus, and charlotte, bacarra, and garden roses.
The elegant shape and ruffled petals of the lisianthus look very similar to the rose and peony. Wedding florists love the flower’s delicate character and expressive color spectrum ranging blue, pink, purple, white, and bi-colors.
The blossom’s natural appearance makes it a great choice for loose, organic arrangements. Planning a winter wedding in the countryside? Then a rustic bouquet of white lisianthus combined with roses, ranunculus, stock, deep blue privet berries, dusty miller, and seeded eucalyptus is the way to go!
When it comes to choosing wedding florals, you can’t go wrong with roses no matter the season. Regarded for beauty, grace, and versatility, the rose grows in a myriad of colors varying from white, cream and ivory to soft neutrals to vivid, high-impact shades.
Capture the spirit of winter by adding berry accents to the arrangement. Blush roses take on a romantic, seasonal mood when complimented by winterberries, seeded eucalyptus, and cascading fern.
Here’s to the winter bride! You are about to say “I do” during one of the most magical times of the year. The cold air and sparkling wonderland backdrop set the mood for love. Use the splendor and romance of the season as inspiration to create the bridal bouquet of your dreams!
