How does floral décor rank on your list of must-haves for your wedding or event? Here are our tips for keeping you on top of your floral decisions this winter.
Be picky about your florist.
Choosing your florist wisely can have a large impact on both your budget and the overall feel of your event. Your florist will help you pick flowers that are in season, in style, and in your budget!
Ask to see your florist’s portfolio.
Check out some of their work from previous events in the same season or location so you can figure out if they will be able to achieve the look you’re going for.
Think outside the flower box.
Incorporate some non-floral elements in your bouquets, such as white pepper berries, snowberries or hypericum. This will add dimension and individuality to your flowers. Mix touches of sage and lamb’s ear to get the frosty effect that reflects the season.
Consider monochromatic aesthetics.
Although there is no shortage of gorgeous possibilities to reflect the season, very simple looks are trending this winter. All white weddings are quite popular this time of year. We’re seeing a lot of soft antique looks paired with very pale blush hues. If you want to stick to the season’s notorious color of red, consider pairing it with a broad palette of colors such as plum, ruby and wine. This will add depth and richness to your package.
Save money by choosing flowers in season.
Winter wedding flowers include: Carnations, Evergreen, Holly Berry, Narcissus, Pansy, Rose, Amaryllis, Star of Bethlehem and Poinsettias.
Don’t forget the personal touch!
Family broaches or ribbons are great additions to personalize your flower arrangements. Attaching a picture of the family members who couldn’t be with you on your special day is another way to add that extra sentimental and personal touch.
