Why do I need Christmas wedding flower ideas?
If you’re planning a December or Christmas wedding, remember that flowers really increase in price in the run up to the holidays. If you’re on a tight wedding budget, you could consider using plants for decoration to give your wedding a floral touch without breaking the bank.
Madonna used Poinsettias plants at her December wedding to Guy Ritchie at Skibo Castle – these large red plants would make fabulous table centres and top table displays.
Available in shades of red, pink and white they also look great massed in a fireplace or placed on window ledges. Just remember that Poinsettias hate the cold, so keep them inside until you’re ready to use them.
For winter weddings in 2012/13 it’s all about high visual impact. You could go for floral displays that hang from the ceiling and fill in the gaps with Christmas baubles. Or perhaps tall displays of winter branches on your tables, decorated with strings of crystals and fairylights.
When it comes to bridal bouquets, round posies are trending over the longer shower-style bouquets. Tightly packaged tulips or roses look amazing at Christmas time and make a real impact in your photos. If you choose an all-white bouquet, avoid it getting lost against your white gown by lifting it with a sparkly brooch or a coloured ribbon around the stems.
