As an increasingly popular season to tie the knot, there are plenty of colour and style options for the winter bride. If you’re planning a winter wedding, discover the latest trends from our expert florists.
Cool blue, silvery greys and snowy whites are the perfect colour combination for a bride who wants to inject some winter sparkle into her wedding day. Here the look has been achieved by using a combination of large headed Avalanche roses, mop headed blue hydrangea, grey-green eucalyptus, spray roses and delicate bouvardia. Ask your florist to add some glacial touches by incorporating jewels, chiffon ribbon and a generous helping of tulle. The overall look is glamourous and opulent.
For the bride who wants to avoid the clichés of a winter wedding, vibrant flowers are a wonderful way to add some warmth and colour to their big day. In these designs the vivid pinks of the gerbera, freesia and stunning Piano roses are set off to perfection by the rich blue anemones- a favourite seasonal wedding flower. Elsewhere, Vanda orchids bring a touch of romance and glamour to table arrangements. For winter weddings, when daylight falls away early, consider combining your flower arrangements with candles. For a top arrangement with a difference, simple hand-tied posies arranged in silvered glass vases look spectacular running down the full length of the table especially when they are punctuated with lit candles in complimentary colours.
Nude and muted colours transcend the seasons and this is one theme that is just as relevant for the winter bride. To bring this colour scheme to life ask your florist to combine a combination of subtle pinks and creams. Flowers such as the delicately coloured ‘Hypnose’ roses and pretty astrantia are perfect choices to achieve the look whilst the addition of decorative seed heads and miniature wood slices give the theme a very natural feel.
The festive season is a magical time of year for all things, especially weddings. After all, there could be no better gift than waking up on Christmas Day as a newly married couple! For couples who are planning a Christmas wedding, avoid the clichés of red flowers and mistletoe and choose an opulent colour theme instead. A colour palette of purples, gold and green is the order of the day and ask your florist to include as many festive touches as possible, including seasonal foliage, glittered pine cones and even fairy lights!
Deepest red combined with delicate cream is a timeless look that never goes out of style. For winter weddings this classic combination has just a hint of Christmas about it without feeling too festive. In these designs sumptuous roses steal the show. Deep red Baccara roses are the perfect choice for the winter bride. The addition of red hypericum berries and burnished silver accessories completes the look.
