The great part about paper floristry is that we can create literally any type of flower for our clients and make something super special. A bride wants a Christmas cactus branch and a bundle of peonies?! No problem, let me just whip that up and put those beauties together for you. You say you want a bundle of daffodils mixed with apple blossoms in the middle of Winter, I got your back!
But what if you have a client that would like a traditional set of flowers for her wedding. What if you are not quite sure what is normally available in the Winter months. Let me save you the walk down to your local florist shop to ask them a billion questions about what they can get in the months of November - January and save you the trouble. (Although a nice walk down there to buy a few stems for inspiration never hurts.)
Traditional Winter Wedding Flowers
Traditionally speaking your flowers will reflect that of what is going to be easy to grow indoors (especially if you live in a place where Winter means snowy, frosty cold nights) or something that can withstand the freezing cold like evergreen plants.
Modern Day Winter wedding flowers
Todays Winter wedding flowers reflect the world wide reach that our flower market has today. There are many flower options today than there would have been even 50 years ago. We now have the ability to ship flowers from all over the world and when the northern hemisphere is in Winter, well that means that our southern brethren are in Summer and full of all the lush flowers that we crave.
Fillers available year round
Winter Wedding color schemes
Winter wedding color schemes tend to be more traditional and stick to the whites, red and greens. This is just a rough guideline that follows the flowers that would traditionally be found during the winter months. Many color schemes that seem to keep coming back every winter include, Navy, dusty blues, Emeralds, Creams, Whites, Gold, Silver, Reds, and plums. The Winter months tend to learn more towards the deep rich jewel tones, a little bling and the cooler blues.
