If you’re tying the knot during the winter months, you have plenty of blooms to choose from, including amaryllis, anemone, lilies, French tulips, jasmine, roses and orchids. Here’s inspiration for the trendy ways you can use these seasonal flowers in your winter wedding flower arrangements this year:
The winter landscape leaves you with a stunning, minimal background to complement elegant florals. Red roses and calla lilies are classic choices for winter wedding bouquets, but you can add a modern touch with white hydrangeas and natural greenery.
If you want an all-white wedding, go for an arrangement with classic white flowers like amaryllis, orchids and tulips. Soften the stark white with ivory, cream, blush or pale blue tones. If you like a bit of glam, add some metallic accents as well. Or, add eucalyptus for a pop of greenery.
A vibrant and colorful bouquet will pop against the white of your wedding dress and the wintry landscape. Think bright blooms like mango calla lilies, orange orchids, pink peonies, lilac and garden roses. We expect to see a lot of deeper tones this year as well, such as plum, burgundy and navy blue. Mix them with dusty pink rose and blush hues for a dramatic and elegant bouquet. Edgy black accents will also complement these moodier hues during the colder months.
Wild and Free
For brides seeking a natural, DIY bouquet, head to a local farm and pick your own wildflowers a couple days before your wedding. Not only is a hand-picked bouquet a gorgeous personal take on wedding florals, it’s a great way to use all of the season’s freshest blooms. On the big day, tie the flowers together with a ribbon or burlap string.
If you’re not a fan of the traditional clutch bouquet, go for a cascading arrangement. With their loose and whimsical mix of blooms and flowing greenery, they will be a big trend of 2018. The soft drape of florals gives off a relaxed and romantic vibe, and will look lush and chic against your wedding dress.
According to PopSugar, flower jewelry will be one of trendiest bridal details this year. Subtle flower crowns and tiaras and dainty bracelets complement bouquets for a soft, natural touch. Statement necklaces are a great way to incorporate more florals in your bridal look, especially if you’re going to wear a simple dress. Choose smaller flowers for jewelry, such as ranunculus, succulents, astilbe and astrantia.
This ice-cold floral trend originated on the fashion runway, and is now inspiring brides to incorporate this gorgeous, distinctive decor. It’s elegant and dramatic, with the ice sculpture element mirroring the winter season perfectly.
