Planning a cool weather wedding provides you with extraordinary opportunities for elegance. Bridal bouquets during the winter season can have all of the same beauty as summer bouquets do. Don’t overlook special elements of the season that will set these arrangements off with distinctive flair.
Colors of the Season
A number of hues fit right in with winter weddings. Bridal bouquets that feature these colors will add extraordinary style to the entire ensemble. White is a predominant color in winter, thanks to the snow and ice that frequently covers the ground and turns everything into a wonderland. Capitalize on this simplicity with white flowers. Several different options in neutral berries also exist. Consider adding tallow and hypericum berries to an arrangement for a different flavor. Add splashes of contrast with greenery — ivy, rosemary, eucalyptus, or cedar would be ideal choices. Amp up the finished effect with a bit of red in the arrangement. Holly berries could be the perfect addition.
Unexpected elements can make a bride’s flowers even more special. Choosing tropical blooms for a winter bouquet can add a surprising touch. Consider bright red blossoms such as ranunculus, amaryllis, or showy gerbera daisies. Offset this intense hue with some white flowers such as narcissus, star of Bethlehem, or orchids. Add evergreen boughs and pine cones as stunning accents that push bridal bouquets over the top.
While whites and reds are the predominant colors of the winter season, don’t feel bound to these hues. Consider adding different splashes of color to flower arrangements. Gold and lime green are two beautiful options. The combination of blue and white in bridal bouquets is also a stunning choice.
Explore every elegant option when deciding on cold-weather wedding flowers. In the end, choose whatever appeals to you to complement the rest of the nuptials.
