So you might feel Jack Frost nipping at your toes but this does not mean you cannot have a stunning array of Winter Flowers inside. We just love winter weddings, who would not!  One of the most magical times of the year.  Log fires, mulled wine, snowflakes falling, twinkling stars and your cosy reception indoors. Don’t be fooled into thinking that you can only choose white flowers at Christmas – quite the opposite.  Crisp winter posies on your wedding day can still provide the colour you are looking for. Yes it is true to say that importing more colourful and exotic flowers from abroad can be expensive especially during the winter months but there are a number of flowers available to you:


winter-wedding-flower-ideas-004Tulips – all time favourite large and slender with leaves in a rosette

White scented Hyacinth – A scent with love on your wedding day

Amaryllus – spectacular for table decorations

Roses – all time elegant classic

Lillies – elegance, charm, beauty and grace all in one

Ranunculus – range of colours including white, purple, deep red, orange, yellow and pink – ideal for table centre pieces or boutonnieres

Cymbidium Orchids – make fantastic bridal bouquets

Nerine – delicate flower in pink or white making a pretty addition to a bouquet or floral arrangement


Winter foliage is also abundant to compliment your flowers of choice but keep in mind that some of those with berries may be poisonous so best to avoid leaving within reach of children:

Holly & Ivy – popular Christmas decoration ideally suited to high placed presentations

Dogwood – in both yellow and red stems of vivid colour

Pussy willow – fur like bud which can be made into different shapes

By using the winter blooms available to you and creating a sense of height, you can create a divine décor in your reception with these along with incorporating some foliage and candlelight also.  Remember create your own magical look.
