Lets be honest, we all want our wedding day to be memorable, in a good way! And we want all the things to be what we adore. This includes the venue, dress, cake and of course the flowers.
There are many reasons you would choose certain flowers for your wedding from your preferred style to bloom shape and size, table sizes and shapes, and also how much money you are willing to put aside for the flowery side of things. However keep in mind that the time of year you decide on getting married definitely plays a big part in what flowers are in season and available to you.
Winter allows for soft, delicate and dainty flowers and this means celebrating flowers such as Jonquils, Orchids, Anemones, Campanula, Hydrangeas, Poppies, Baby’s Breath and other light and soft varieties. The harsh heat at other times of the year, especially summer, can make sensitive flowers droop and appear underwhelming so winter is definitely a good time to appreciate these sensitive beauties.
Popular wedding flowers and foliage in season for winter include:
Baby’s Breath, Alstroemeria, Orchids (Dendrobium, Cymbidiumd, Phalaenopsis, Cattleya), Roses, Sweet William, Camellias, Hyacinth, Oriental Lillies, Anemones, Ranunculus, Jonquils, Silver Suede, Lambs Ear, Antherium, Camellias, Carnations, Gardenias, Sweet Peas, Delphiniums, Star of Bethlehems, Freesias, Gardenia, Gladioli, Hyacinth, Iris, Magnolias, Poppies and Lavender, and many more!
It’s often possible to import flowers that aren’t in season from other regions or countries however this can be costly and not all flower types can be imported. We would often recommend a similar flower that may be a more economical option if the particular flower you would like is not available or out of season for your wedding day.
With the right venue and attention to detail you can enjoy the perfect winter wedding! The right catering, styling, decor and flowers can create a warm ambience that makes weddings in this season feel and look magical. Flowers last longer and many look more vibrant in winter and are sure to create a memorable occasion.
