Winter is just around the corner, and that means all things magical and festive! Find out how to create a picture-perfect look with winter wedding flowers whilst sticking to the budget…
Best budget buy
Gypsophila never goes out of fashion and its soft snowy white flowers make it ideal for a winter wedding. Create large arrangements in elegant vases for high impact displays without the whopping price tag. Sprinkle with silver glitter for added sparkle!
Light up the room
Candles are essential at a winter wedding to create that cosy, festive atmosphere. Use a combination of sizes and display on window ledges and as table centres. Always check that your venue allows candles – if not, look at using battery operated ones instead.
Bring the winter indoors by placing seasonal potted plants around your ceremony venue. Display them in rustic containers and finish by sprinkling with fake snow for a super seasonal feel.
If your wedding is taking place close to Christmas, incorporate seasonal decorations like Christmas trees by matching them to your colour scheme.
Spell it out
Make your own floral monogram by covering foam letters with moss, ribbon or wintery flowers. You could try a ‘Mr and Mrs’ design – this will look fab when displayed on your top table or on your gift table at the reception.
Berries bring texture to a winter bouquet and are great for buttonholes too. Try wrapping the stems with twine or raffia for a more rustic, wintery wedding look.
Create a kissing corner at your reception by hanging a ball of mistletoe from the ceiling. Why not hang it in the entrance hall, for when you welcome your guests?
Have a go at making your own festive garland or wreath using a combination of winter foliage or eucalyptus – which smells great, too. In cool weather you can do this a few days before the wedding, leaving you stress free on the day itself.
