Getting married this holiday season? Bring Christmas flavor to your nuptials with fresh flowers that reflect this festive time of the year. Christmas is a lovely time for a wedding; consider some of these floral ideas for yours:
When you think of a Christmas wedding, you likely think about the color scheme; marry white roses and red poinsettia flowers for gorgeous centerpieces and bridal bouquets. Don't care for the traditional colors? Go with green and silver, using balsam and variegated foliage or blue and gold, with blue cornflowers and sea oats for a natural look.
Decorate your ceremony and reception space with potted conifers for a seasonal and eco-friendly touch. These can be planted and part of the new couple's landscaping later.
A versatile centerpiece idea is to use branches and boughs of evergreen and then place slices of dried citrus down the center. First, they smell great and second, they are an inexpensive alternative to arrangements, which can be difficult to talk and engage over.
Balsam Boutonnieres and Bouquets
Use balsam or pine sprigs in the boutonnieres and bouquets; the rich green hue is ideal for highlighting any wedding flowers. Also, the fragrance of the balsam is amazing!
There is something magical about a white-themed wedding; talk to your floral designer about unique and dramatic displays using only white flowers, plants, and filler; some suggestions include:
- White baby's breath.
- White roses.
- White lilies.
- White carnations, which are also always widely available.
- Silvery Japanese Painted Fern.
- Aromatic Curry plant.
Potted Party Favors
Give guest mini conifer plants or single blossom poinsettias for coming to your event. These can be used for double-duty, placed near the table settings for each guest to take home, but also creating a gorgeous table-scape during your wedding.
Use evergreen swags to adorn your ceremonial arch, if you are using one. Use green floral wire to secure the boughs in place.
Instead of decorating the couple's car with tin-cans or signage, use gorgeous holiday wreaths on both the bumper and the front-grill for a festive touch. Miss the noise and calamity? Tie some long strings of jingle-bells for added-effect.
Christmas and winter weddings are among the most beautiful of affairs. Make sure that your wedding still lauds fresh flowers and foliage – even though there may be snow on the ground!
