Are you dreaming of a winter wedding? Getting married in the colder months can seem like a challenge when it comes to the wedding details, but that does not mean you have to sacrifice your floral creativity.

Sure, there are a few things to keep in mind like the availability of your favorite flowers, and yes, certain flowers may not go with the flow – or feel – of a holiday wedding.

Whether you embrace your season’s flowers or not, winter inspired bouquets are full of alternative ideas and frosty elements that make the winter season perfect for wedded bliss!

Frosty weather or a holiday wedding doesn’t have to mean holly berries and all red and green wedding décor. Textured, silvery greens, soft blues, champagne and white floral, such as the eucalyptus and fern-shaped dusty miller, lisianthus, narcissus, camellias and amaryllis, give a muted look and come together nicely to create your winter wonderland wedding. Feminine and soft colored flowers – like this beautiful frosty pink bouquet –  are a romantic and elegant option for your winter wedding bouquet.

Unique wedding bouquets with winter elements can be a simple and economical choice for your wedding. Create a rustic chic touch for your winter wedding with pinecones – as an accent or full bouquet idea. You can also add a winter shimmer to the pinecones (or other bouquet elements) with glitter spray or snow spray paint – makes a nice winter bouquet DIY project. Berries, found in many colors, are popular winter bouquet add-ins as well as cotton, moss, wheat, branches and even burlap, which are rustically charming elements for the chilly season. Or opt for a complete alternative idea like a button bridal bouquet!
