Winter wedding flowers

The mid-winter months are fast becoming a favourite time of year to tie the knot.

Venues can be cheaper, not to mention the honeymoon that comes after and your guests are less likely to run into the problem of being double booked on busy summer weekends. Convenience aside, a winter wedding provides a whole host of gorgeous inspiration when it comes to planning décor, the opportunity for frosty morning photo shoots and even the prospect of having a hot chocolate bar at your reception!

When it comes to choosing flowers for your big day though you may be concerned about what is in season and what flowers you will be able to get at this time of year easily. Luckily florists are experts at sourcing all manner of flowers year round so if you have your heart set on a bouquet of dahlias for your January nuptials you will most likely be able to get them, be prepared to pay more than you would in August.

If you want to get the most out of your budget then consider some of these in-season blooms to keep costs low and get the freshest of flowers:

Winter Flowering Irises

These eye-catching flowers combine blues or purples with a dash of yellow. Their unusual shape also adds to their appeal. Combine them with silver foliage for a sparkling effect or pair them with dark greens for more of a forest vibe.

Calla lilies

These structural beauties come in a multitude of colours and are ideal if you want minimal flowers. A bunch of three with a small amount of greenery make for beautiful bridesmaid bouquets that can be carried in a presentation style. They are also ideal for tall centrepieces thanks to their sturdy stems.

They are a great way to add contrasting colours when paired with other flowers in your posy. They often produce up to five blooms per stem so can be great value for money too.
