Perfect flowers for winter weddings
This silvery foliage has a soft to the touch surface and fluffy in texture. It is great in bridal bouquets as collars, and even in boutonnieres and table centerpieces. Pair it with white blooms like roses, ranunculuses, lilies and tulips, it is the perfect combination for winter!
Here is a winter wedding centerpiece that I made using white ranunculuses and dusty millers. The dusty millers were lined all around the low square container. You might have a little difficulty doing this because the dusty millers come in branches and when you cut them, their stems are very soft and difficult to be inserted into the foam. When the borders are all filled up, cover the rest of the foam with white ranunculuses to form a sphere. Lastly, use curled silver aluminium wire to form a 'cover' over the flowers. I love the icy and wintery look of this wedding centerpiece.
Gypsophilias or Babies Breath is a great winter wedding flower, as they are small flowers that grows massively on a single stem. You can get easily get the feel of the season when using this flower. Plus, they are cheap too.
This bouquet is made of just gypsophilias on a bouquet holder. Cut the gypsophilias in short lengths and insert them all around the bouquet foam to form a round. then, add strips of laces at random places. These provide soft lines to the otherwise round stiff bouquet.
Traditional blooms like roses and lilies.
Go traditional by choosing red roses and white lilies. Make a cascading style using the flowers and go conservative. This combination still looks pretty to this day.
