Stylish winter wedding flower inspiration
Prestwold Hall is a beautiful venue whatever time of year, but at winter it really does feel magical. With roaring log fires, sumptuous, cosy interiors and the most incredible views out over the Leicestershire countryside (even better when covered in snow), our Grade I listed stately home is winter wedding perfection. Whether you’ve already booked the date or just love the idea of getting married in December, January or February, we’ve got plenty of winter wedding flower inspiration to help celebrate the beauty of the season.
What flowers are in season in winter?
Some flowers bloom all year round, however a lot are only available during particular months or seasons. While your florist is likely to be able to source some flowers regardless of season – if you’re willing to pay a premium for important them from abroad – it’s much more affordable and far better for the environment to choose flowers that are in season.
If you have your heart set on a particular bloom that’s not in season, there’s a good chance your florist can suggest a winter wedding flower alternative that looks very similar. We love a romantic, blousy peony at a wedding, but can be difficult to source in the winter. Ranunculi and or David Austin roses are a fantastic seasonal substitute.
Some flowers are available throughout the year, like roses, gypsophila, lisianthus, gerbera and alstroemeria, which are all beautiful – and budget-friendly – choices for your winter wedding. But for more inspiration, here’s a handy breakdown on what flowers could work for your big day.
Winter wedding flowers
Throughout December, January and February there are certain flowers that really come into their own. Planning a winter wedding? Why not add some of these to your bouquet or table centrepieces?
Winter Camellias – another great alternative to a peony for your winter wedding, this flower brings all the texture with its beautiful petals.
Poinsettias – If you’re planning a Christmas wedding, you can’t go wrong with a traditional poinsettia. The bright red colour adds a perfect seasonal feel.
Anemones – With their dramatic black centre, anemones are similar to a poppy in appearance and create a chic focal point to your winter wedding bouquet.
Chrysanthemums – Half pom pom/half daisy these fluffy blooms make a statement and adds plenty of volume to your bouquet.
Hellebores – These delicate star-shaped flowers come in a range of romantic shades and we think they make the prefect addition to a boho-style winter wedding.
