Christmas Wedding Flowers Inspiration

9th June, 2023

There’s a certain romance about Christmas: the twinkling lights, the soft gleam of candles, a cosy fire. While summer is the usual time for tying the knot, we’re big fans of embracing the warm glow a winter wedding can offer. And the best part is there lots of gorgeous blooms to make the occasion even more beautiful, we’ve put together a few of our favourites for any couples looking for inspiration.


Go classic

Not only are the choice of flowers and foliage spot on for Christmas, the symbolism of this wedding bouquet couldn’t be more appropriate. Red roses represent love and romance making them an ideal matrimonial choice. To put a festive spin on this classic wedding flower, go bold with a posy of red roses mixed with metallic accents and lush green foliage for a full on festive look.

Choose an on trend table runner

Just because it’s Christmas doesn’t mean you have to stick to reds, greens and golds. Instead you can embrace the drama and beauty of the season, instead of it’s colours. We love this table runner (a firm favourite at weddings) created from densely packed roses, bouvardia, freesia, astrantia and carnations and then cleverly graded from deepest red to pink, cream and back again to create an on-trend ombré effect. Even the candles, a seasonal must-have, and scattering of rose petals mirror the colours of the arrangement.


Try winter jewels

We love a jewel colour scheme, the rich colours are so opulent. This intricate shower bouquet works in harmony with the beading detail on the bride’s dress and features cerise pink and lilac roses as the dominant flowers. Glossy green ivy leaves, silver cones and the inclusion of hellebores are gently hint at the festive season. (p.s.

Embrace seasonal style

Just because you’re a winter bride, it doesn’t mean you have to give up on your dream of wearing flowers in your hair on your wedding day. Make it work for the season by combining crisp white flowers with little luxe details. Hints of copper give this head-turning design instant drama.

Delight in winter tones

For the bride who’s looking to wed in wonderfully winter style a bouquet full of snow-white anemones and hydrangea is a chic and sophisticated choice. The dark centers of the anemones and deep purple Calla lilies add flashes of midnight to this daringly different design, mimicking the stark beauty of nature in winter. We think it’s the perfect choice for a black-tie wedding.

Use fresh festive foliage

Designed with the Christmas bride in mind, these gorgeous wedding cake flowers include luxurious red roses, pink spray roses and seasonal foliage such as fir, holly and red hypericum berries. The greenery has a touch of glitter in another nod to the season and looks especially lush against the crisp white icing.


Use festive shapes

These pretty pomanders look a little like baubles, offering a lovely subtle hint of Christmas. Roses, hellebores and hydrangeas meet holly, pine and silver cones to create a beautiful ball of blooms in fresh colours. A lovely choice for bridesmaids, after they’re carried down the aisle they can be strung up to add to the wedding décor.


Hopefully you’re now feeling the perfect combination of merry and romantic, all ready to choose some fabulous festive flowers for the big day. Don’t forget one of our amazing florists is always on hand to help.
