5 winter wedding flower trends every festive bride should know about

5 winter wedding flower trends every festive bride should know about


Written by Katie Byrne

Planning to say 'I do' in the colder months? Get inspired with Interflora's round-up of upcoming seasonal trends...

 

The trend: a shift from seasonal brights to subtle, frosted tones

Move over jewel-bright blooms - it's all about more authentically wintery flowers, instead.

Says Natalie Shaw from Natalie's Florist in Staffordshire: "We are definitely seeing softer shades - variations of silver, greys, whites and even lilacs, as opposed to the traditional darker winter colours we may expect. Brides are often looking for a 'winter wonderland' theme, which can be applied to extravagant designs or provide a more minimalistic feel".

How to deal with three last-minute wedding flower emergencies

The trend: think natural

Says Natalie: "We are seeing a lot of demand for frost-tipped bouquets made up mostly of foliage and only a few select white spray roses or even orchids. Earthy, posy-shaped arrangements with a very subtle 'winter's morning' shimmer are very much on-trend, rather than the bejewelled bouquets with glitter that we have seen in past years".

The trend: festive foliage

The colder season lends itself well to the use of foliage - think succulents, eucalyptus and even hersb.

Eight gorgeous ways to decorate your wedding aisle

Kate Ward from South Yorkshire business Louise Florist comments: "Foliage has become the focus, not just the back drop, to winter wedding floristry. We recently incorporated rosemary and sage into a bridal bouquet, giving almost a medieval feel and the most beautiful aroma".

The trend: Pin-fluence

Says Kate: "I have so many brides coming for consultations with moodboards and inspiration they have taken from Pinterest. It's great for florists as it gives a real insight into what the customers is envisaging - social media gives brides floral ideas they may have never considered before, giving us room for experimentation to make a real impact on their big day".

Keep a grip on reality when pinning, however; as easy as it is to fall in love with a show-stopping floral display when browsing online, it might not match your seasonal requirements, or your budget capabilities.

The trend: single-colour impact

Explains Karen Barnes, Head of Product Development at Interflora: "A frosty winter colour palette can be very magical. Using a single colour creates real impact whether it's with pure white or indeed lilac or an icy shade of blue".

6 things to do with your bouquet after your wedding day

Karen advises using a variety of blooms in different sizes and textures in order to stop a single shade feeling 'flat'.
