More than ten percent of all weddings celebrated in a year are winter weddings. As cold and snowy in most parts of the world, anyone can’t help but wonder, will the winter brides have enough flower choices for this very special event? Well, the fact is…a lot! Flowers that bloom in winter may not be as much compared to those that grow in spring and summer yet we still have to realize that it’s not actually the season but the personal preferences of the couple getting married play the biggest part.
Winter wedding flowers characterize the warmth of the events associated with the season (Christmas, New Year and Valentine’s Day). Flowers such as these usually come in red, burgundy, yellow and Orange with accents of Silver, White and Green.
