With winter on its way, it means that wedding season is officially over, but another is just around the corner.
There’s something about winter weddings that are ethereal. Perhaps it’s the fleeting daylight, the bare branches covered in snow or the deeper toned colour themes often used throughout.
With the winter season upon us, it also means a new season of floral trends. To find out what’s in vogue this season, we asked Harriet Parry, Floral Stylist at Bloom & Wild, to reveal the wedding floral trends we can expect to see all over our Instagram feeds in the cooler months.
“When it comes to winter weddings, it’s nice to have flowers that give a nod towards the season. Combining wintery shades, like frosty white, with contrasting pops of colour will bring more energy to the room. Pops of hot pink or orange are perfect for this.”
Feathers & Florals
“For something a little bit different, why not add feathers into your floral arrangements? This will add volume to your display (as well as a quirky twist) and bring different textures and depths to it, too.”
Greenery & Wild Whites
“Greenery is a great way to bring earthy shades into your wedding flowers. Pair it with white tones for a subtle reference to the festive season. Pick fragrant garden roses, stocks or other wild flowers in shades of white to create a stunning winter wonderland look for your wedding photography“
“Traditionally couples might have chosen the red rose for their nuptials in the winter, however this year the focus is on roses in a variety of nude tones, for a real ethereal vibe. White roses are a symbol of happy love and nude roses represent appreciation, closeness and sincerity, making them perfect for a wedding bouquet.”
Ikebana Flower Arranging
“Fancy something modern and statement making? Add a Japanese feel to your big day with Ikebana-styled arrangements. Simple and structural, these simply powerful displays allow each stem to shine. This trend is set to take the wedding scene by storm as we see design inspiration migrating from Japan to the UK in our interiors, too.”
“If you’re after a real retro vibe, dried flowers are making a huge comeback. Not only do they look really striking for winter woodland-themed weddings, they can also be arranged days before the event (taking the stress out of fresh flowers) and can be kept and styled in the home after the big day itself.”
