One of the highlights of winter is the abundance of fresh citrus fruits at the market — their sweet flavors and bright hues help brighten even the dreariest of days. Citrus are also plentiful this time of the year at the flower market, which means they're the perfect accompaniment to a winter wedding palette. Here are a few of our favorite ways to incorporate citrus into your wedding flowers.

Cocktail-Table Centerpiece (above): Decorate your cocktail-hour tables with these charming centerpieces of garden roses, jasmine, ranunculuses, scabiosa, and pieris.

Table Runner: Another affordable table décor idea would be to skip the individual centerpieces in favor of table runners fashioned from fresh greenery and citrus fruits.
