5 Types of Flowers Perfect for Your Winter Wedding

Winter weddings can truly be some of the most magical events. But having a wedding in the “off-season” can often make it a bit more challenging to finalize wedding plans. This is especially true when it comes to seasonal items, like flowers. So to help you choose the right flowers, here are a few flowers that make great options for winter wedding flowers.

Roses in an arrangement with pine boughs and frost


Red or white, roses can be the perfect addition to any wedding flower arrangement. They offer a timeless, classic feel and can be dressed up or down depending on other flowers they’re paired with. For winter weddings, white or light colored roses paired with greenery make quite the elegant arrangement.


Not all wedding flower bouquets or centerpieces have to be all flowers. During the winter months, berries and other small fruits make great additions to wedding decor. Red berries mixed in with plenty of greenery are a great choice for winter flower arrangements.


Since they’re available all year, carnations often make a great choice for winter weddings. Not only are they affordable and pretty, but they come in a variety of colors. Using carnations in the bridal bouquets as well as scattering them throughout the centerpieces will help bring some warmth on even the coldest of days.


While anemones do come in a variety of colors, the center of the flower is what makes them so unique. No matter the flower color, the center remains a dark blue, almost black color. This makes them a great option for winter weddings to add a pop of dark colors in a bouquet of lighter flowers.


Lilies and peonies are often incorporated into bridal bouquets for a nice focal point. But because these flowers generally aren’t in season during the winter, amaryllis flowers make a great alternative. They come in several colors and can bring a splash of color and attention to the arrangement when filled out with winter greenery.

If you wanted flowers that won’t be in season for your winter wedding, it’s important to work with your florist shop to find suitable alternatives. Fortunately, there are about 36,613 florist shops in the U.S. for you to choose from. The flowers discussed in this article make great additions for bouquets and centerpieces, so talk to your florist about your options today.
