Winter weddings are a popular choice for those that want the icy backdrop of a snowy wonderland for their big day, and also for those that want to save money. Although many couples opt for a spring or summer wedding, getting married at these times of the year can be more expensive than during autumn or winter. It is one of the reasons why so many people opt for a winter wedding. Spring and summer weddings bring to mind beautiful blooms and delicate shades, but what the soon-to-wed do if they want flowers to be a major part of their winter-time nuptials? Discover how stunning winter wedding in season December can be with our top five flowers chart.
Ideal for a pure white wedding or even if you want to offset a colour theme with a splash of elegant white, the Ranunculus is a stunning bloom. The soft round shape of the flower’s head makes for a robust bouquet and is the perfect choice for an eye-catching buttonhole. Also known as the Persian Buttercup, the Ranunculus is known for its fluffy appearance and beautifully uniform petals that form a smile-inducing round head.
If you thinking of a formal winter wedding, complete with a traditional red colour theme, the romantic red rose is always a popular choice. Known for being the most romantic flower of all, the rose is the obvious choice of flower for the most romantic day of your life. A full, red rose bouquet is simply stunning and will serve to embellish a white wedding dress. Perfect on their own or embellished with winter greenery such as holly sprigs, red roses make for elegant table centrepieces.
A winter flowering heather is a gorgeous option for Celtic weddings. Whether you are Scottish, have Scottish roots or simply adore all things Celtic, consider the pretty purples of Heather for your bridal bouquet and table centrepieces. Flowering in purple, white and pink, Heather can be used for several different colour schemes, but purple seems to be a popular choice for winter weddings especially.
Imagine having your very own cherry tree forest, in which to house your wedding breakfast. The pale pink flowers of the winter Cherry bloom from autumn to spring, which means they are available for the December weddings. Winter weddings don’t need to be all about the snow, and if you want to unleash a little springtime magic on your big day, winter cherry blossoms are certainly the way to do it! The winter cherry is very versatile in that, it will also team well with berries and holly in a bouquet or can be arranged on its own for a simpler look.
Although associated with spring, early flowering daffodils can flower as early as December. If you want a bright and breezy wedding with springtime flair but don’t want to pay spring wedding prices, book a December wedding and embrace the simple beauty of the daffodil. These yellow flowers look amazing in a bouquet and can be arranged in clear vases as centrepieces and dotted around the ceremony venue in bunches to brighten up the room. Daffodils are, by no means, a usual choice for winter weddings and if you enjoy being unique, this flower will provide decor with a difference on your wedding day. Potted daffodil bulbs also make for excellent wedding favour so why not place a little pot at the place of each guest and give them something beautiful with which to remember your special day?
