Flowers probably aren’t the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the colder months, so if you’re having a winter wedding you may feel that your choice of winter floral is limited.
But fear not! There is no reason your chilly wedding needs to be flowerless!
You actually have your pick of flowers that only bloom in the frosty months; seasonal flowers such as orchids, poinsettias and camellias for example.
Don’t forget a wide array of year-round varieties are still flowering through the winter time too! Roses, verbena, and hibiscus to name a few.
Plus with colorful winter berries, types of greenery like holly and eucalyptus, and seasonal additions like pine cones to play with, there is no reason a winter bouquet can’t look that extra bit special.
However, you may not be loving the ‘staying seasonal’ idea. You or your guests may even have allergies to organic floral. Or perhaps the very thought of sourcing fresh flowers is causing unnecessary complications to your wedding plans…
Well, you’re in luck, there is a maintenance and stress-free alternative: faux flowers!
Why is Faux the New Fresh?
Artificial flowers have become an extremely popular alternative to fresh flowers in recent years, and it’s easy to see why.
Made of silk, the quality of artificial flowers is now so exceptional that it’s impossible to tell a real petal from a false one!
Arranging faux flowers has truly become a respected craft in its own right, with sites such as Etsy boasting some absolutely beautiful and incredibly life-like bridal bouquets.
