Winter. Not the obvious choice of season for a wedding? Think again! The wedding ‘season’ now lasts the whole year round, with December a popular month of the year to marry. From December through to February there is a wonderful palette of flowers and foliage you can use for winter wedding bouquets too.
Winter Wedding Bouquet Colours
Rich red hues bring warmth and a festive flavour, with the multi petal ranunculus back in season alongside anemones. Both make the perfect choice for winter bouquets, along with velvety red roses which continue to be a perennial favourite for a Christmas celebration.
Pure white is such an elegant choice for winter bouquets – roses, ranunculus, anemones, hellebores, narcissi and hydrangea to name a few.
The choice of purple and blue flowers is limited in winter. So, to inject some colour into winter wedding bouquets, look no further than the wonderful tulip. A personal favourite, there is an incredible array of this versatile flower in single and double varieties, yellows, purples, hot pinks and oranges. It is a stunning choice for bridesmaid bouquets.
Look a little further though and you will see foliage is the true star of the winter show! Jasmine trails of delicate scented white flowers will add an exquisite touch to your bouquet. Why not team it with other scented leaves such as rosemary, pine, myrtle and eucalyptus? Scent is so evocative and will provide an abiding memory of your wedding day.
Winter provides us with an extraordinary variety of flowers and foliage for bouquets, so you will be spoilt for choice!
