Top 10 Flowers for Your Winter Wedding

Welcome to our newest post in our four part series on florals!  If you’re a winter bride then this one’s for you! Recently I asked NJ Wedding Florist Erika from Garden State Floral Design to share with us the Top 10 Flowers for Your Winter Wedding and this is what she had to say:

When it comes to winter weddings, many people think there are no good flower options. On the contrary, if you work with your season and utilize the seasonal flowers you can create extremely unique stunning arrangements. Below I have listed a few of my favorites.

1. Eucalyptus- There is something about eucalyptus that makes just about any arrangement look classy. It comes in a variety of different types including seeded, baby blue and feathered which provides the perfect mix of texture. Its’ unique silvery color makes it a perfect addition to winter arrangements.

2. White Pine- If you are looking for a festive holiday look, white pine is the perfect greenery to provide both olfactory and visual appeal.

3. Roses- Roses are a very popular winter flower because they are both readily available and come in a wide variety of colors. Using roses can help you to bring in different colors as well as providing a more traditional look.

4. Hypericum Berries- Hypericum come in a variety of colors including red, white, green, peach and brown and are definitely reminiscent of a holiday look. They hold up very well and make an excellent accent flower.

5. Pin Cushions- The different texture of pin cushions makes them a standout flower. They come in different shades of red, yellow and orange and are extremely hardy. Despite their prickly appearance they are actually very soft.

6. Protea- The winter is the optimal season for protea. Whether it be the king or queen, they are sure to be a beautiful focal flower for just about any type of arrangement. Their larger size makes them a big impact flower which is sure to grab attention.

7. Berzelia- Berzelia are also a unique looking accent for bouquets and centerpieces alike. They come in different shades of greens and silver as well as different sizes. They are very hardy which also makes them a nice accompaniment for the winter.

8. Dusty Miller- Dusty Miller comes in both a lacy leaf and a large leaf variety which can give you the perfect texture based on your arrangements. It is a winter favorite due to its silvery color. It almost appears frosted.

9. White Birch- If you are looking for a great way to winterize your centerpieces, white birch is the perfect choice. It provides height as well as dimension in a cost effective way.  It is a great choice in a winter wonderland themed event.

10. Succulents- Succulents are all the rage in modern design. They come in a variety of colors and shapes which makes them a versatile fit for most color schemes. They especially work well for anyone looking for a natural looking arrangement or bouquet.
