Winter Wedding Flowers

The snow has arrived, leaving parts of the world looking like a magical winter wonderland right out of a picture. What a beautiful time for a wedding! Although you may think that choices of winter flowers for weddings are limited at this time of the year, I assure you that is not the case. Although popular wedding flowers are always an option, winter offers the unique and exciting opportunity to incorporate holiday themes into your wedding.

Choosing Wedding Flowers

First off, I just want to say that you do not have to choose a holiday theme for your wedding flowers just because your wedding is taking place in winter. Lilies, roses, daisies, and orchids, for example, are available all through the year; so are many other flowers, although out of season flowers and exotic flowers may be more expensive during winter. You can always choose flowers and arrangements based on your favorite flowers, wedding colors, or on the meanings of flowers. That being said, I would like to focus on the special opportunities that a winter wedding presents.

Fall Wedding Flowers

What comes to your mind when you think of fall? For me, fall brings images of vibrantly colored leaves, abundant harvests, and scenes of warmth and coziness. The opulent colors and forms found in nature at this time of year are a great inspiration for the fall wedding flower arrangements that I create. Out of all of the floral designing that I have done, the fall wedding flower arrangements are the most memorable. For the fall wedding, flowers in season may not be what you were thinking of, but there are many ways to incorporate fall themes into your autumn wedding.

Fall Flowers for Weddings

One great way to incorporate fall into your special day is by using autumn blooming flowers. At first you may not think that there are many fall blooming flowers to choose from, but I assure you that is not the case. Some fall wedding flowers in season include sunflowers, chrysanthemums, and hydrangeas. Sunflowers come in miniature and large sizes, and come in colors of cream, yellow, orange, maroon, and crimson. Chrysanthemums come in almost every color of the rainbow except for blue. Hydrangeas give a lot of bang for your buck as they are large enough to take the place of several smaller flowers, and they can be dyed any color. Set your wedding apart from others by using more unusual fall bloomers such as cockscomb, yarrow, celosia, and zinnias interspersed with traditional flowers. As an added bonus, using flowers in season is a great way to save money!

Use Flowers in Warm, Fall Colors

Maybe you have your heart set on a flower that is not a traditional fall flower, but you want to have a fall theme. No problem! Most popular wedding flowers are available in some kind of fall color. For instance, roses come in apricots, oranges, creams, and deep reds that are ideal for fall. My favorite flower, the calla lily, comes in the traditional ivory but also in orange flame and eggplant, representing fall perfectly. Also, miniature calla lilies make great boutonnieres. The trend this year is to mix a variety of flower types-why not mix some of the traditional flowers with the more unusual and make your fall wedding flower arrangements stand out?

Popular Buds for Your Bridal Bouquet & Arrangements

If you are like me, you have had your wedding flowers picked out for years, but I know for many of you, choosing wedding flowers can be a mind boggling decision. There are a variety of beautiful and popular wedding flowers to choose from; browsing through a bridal magazine or even a floral or gardening magazine can be enough to give you a good idea of what kind of wedding flowers you want. Here are some ideas to get you started.


Roses are classic popular wedding flowers. They are elegant, fragrant, come in a variety of colors and forms, and are versatile. In the language of flowers, the color of roses represent different meanings-for example, red roses symbolize passion and desire, white roses symbolize innocence, and orange symbolize fascination-what a great way to have beautiful bouquets and arrangements and send a message at the same time! If you are worried that roses are overdone, you can always add other more unusual flowers to the arrangements to make a unique statement while still using roses, one of the most popular wedding flowers. What will you say with your wedding flowers?

Calla Lilies

Perhaps no flower is as elegant as my favorite flower, the calla lily. Calla Lilies represent "magnificent beauty" in the Victorian language of flowers. Calla Lilies come in large, regular, and miniature sizes. They also come in a variety of colors such as ivory, pink, orange, dark burgundy, yellow, and even multi-colored. This amazing color variety is a big reason they are one of the most popular flowers for weddings. A few stems of calla lilies look great with simple wedding gowns and do not overpower them. Orange flame calla lilies are a great flower for traditional fall themed weddings.

The round, snowball like flower clusters of the hydrangea come in many shades naturally from green to pink to blue. They can also be dyed to your color choice. Hydrangeas with their full size are popular wedding bouquet flowers since they can economically fill in bouquets, but they can also look great alone. They make an excellent dried flower if you are planning to preserve your wedding flowers. Hydrangeas are also popular fall wedding flowers as they are in bloom until late fall and some have the natural fall coloring of green, light orange, burgundy, and ivory.
