The dream wedding is the ideal embodiment of every couple’s hopes and dreams. Planning your wedding in the snow and diamond dressed trees season is not as different as planning your wedding in any other season. The same choices, the same questions, the same problems: the location, the wedding dress, the tux, the menu, the cake and of course the flowers.
Picking the winter wonderland flowers for the bridal bouquet, for the godmother and the bridesmaids, but also for the other wedding floral arrangements is not easy. If your dream wedding will be in the middle of the winter, you will have the feeling that the bouquets and the arrangements need to be necessarily special and especially in tone with your favorite season.
Winter is a pretentious time of the year and the flowers don’t cop very well with the cold and breezy days. But, you mustn’t give up your preferences for factors like the flowers availability, their price and their resistance to cold. A special winter flower is the “Magnolia”. Her name comes from the French botanist Pierre Magnol and she is considered a noble, unique wonder of nature. Of a delicate, spectacular beauty, the magnolia is not often found in wedding bouquets, so will surely be pretty unique from this point of view.
For the godmother and bridesmaids bouquets the “Christmas Star” flower is recommended. This way you will bring back the Christmas magic feeling. Another suggestion would be to add to the setting some “Japanese Roses”. They will increase the greatness of the décor and can be found in a variety of colors. Another special choice for the bouquets is the “Cymbidium Orchid”, a particular orchid species, which blooms in the winter and has a large range of colors, from white to yellow, pink and green.
But, if simplicity is the starting point of your wedding theme, and you are a romantic bride, choose a snowdrops flower bouquet or white lily flowers enriched with small springs of myrtle. Even if for the winter weddings most of the flowers you know or like are hard to find, you can ameliorate the impact that a wedding with no flowers could have on you and start looking early for florists and favorite flowers.
To save some money and not to get cot with dull wedding arrangements, use your imaginative skills and take advantage of nature’s wonders. Choose snowflakes and pine cones like ornaments. You can make it yourself or you can ask your florist to add them to the wedding bouquets.
Although, in generally the suggested flowers are not so well known and used for wedding arrangements, this winter wonderland beauties, the “Christmas Star”, the “Winter Lily”, the “Japanese Rose” and the “Magnolia” are spectacular and give a touch of elegance to any event or flower arrangement.11
