Winter Wedding Flowers

Although only a small percentage of weddings are held during the winter months, this time of year can present some lovely ideas for bouquets and centrepieces.

Choosing Colours

Be careful when choosing white, red or green flowers and leaves/accessories. Take a small swatch of fabric of your bride's and bridesmaid's dresses to the florist. These 3 colours come in varying shades and you'll want to get your flowers and leaves to match or at least compliment your attire. Whites come in shades varying from brilliant pure white to ivory. And as we all know, reds can be hard to match up.

Centrepiece and Bouquet Ideas

Dress up your tables with beautiful centrepieces. These arrangements can also be used to create bridal bouquets as well.

Roses, pionese, pinecones and ornaments set into a bed of evergreen leaves.
Red poinsettias mixed with white tulips or roses.
Red roses mixed with white lilies.
Cala lilies with clusters of purple/blue berries.
Gardenias, holly berries and ivy.
Hydrangeas and pomegranate with trailing ribbons.
Gardenias, red berries, white rose buds with green ivy.
White roses, white hydrangeas, white sweet peas, white ribbon and tulle.
Purple hydrangeas, pink or white roses and purple/pink lilacs.
Red rose buds, pinecones with pine leaves and red ribbon.

Flower Meanings

Various meanings have been associated to all types of flowers over the centuries. A white rose doesn't have the same meaning as a red rose, so colours are also an important part in learning the meaning of a certain type of flower.
