No matter what time of year you're tying the knot, carrying a beautiful bundle of flowers down the aisle is a must. Even if they're not technically in season at the time of your wedding, you can (and should!) have a bouquet of your favorite blooms on your wedding day. And if you want those pretty flowers to reflect your wedding season, then you're in luck because some of the most breathtaking color combinations are perfect for a winter wedding.
When thinking of seasonal arrangements, start with the colors that feel most reminiscent of the time of year. For the colder months, we love deep burgundy, crisp emerald green, snowy white, and classic blue. Select a bouquet that features a combination of these colors for a winter-inspired look that won't read like holiday décor. Another great way to "winterize" your bouquet is by selecting in-season additions, like evergreen sprigs, berries, or acorns. When deftly incorporated, these little touches help amp up the seasonal feel without screaming "winter wonderland!"

Love tone-on-tone? Consider using white blooms in a variety of textures, as this bride did. In winter months, we're huge fans of Queen Anne's lace (if you look close, it looks like a cloud—or, ahem, lace!) because the seasonal bloom can add a delicate texture to any style bouquet.
Go for Greenery
We associate evergreens with winter for a reason. Take a cue from the season and do your own take on greenery by incorporating other seasonal blooms, such as protea, in a greenery-filled base. This bride did just that, carrying a dramatic bouquet of king protea, Queen Anne’s lace, and lots of textured greenery.
Naturally, berries also make an appearance this time of year. Use the fruit to add an unexpected touch to your look, as this bride did with her bouquet of mauve berries, roses, ranunculus, and cosmos.
Finish It Off!
Just as you would wrap a holiday gift, finish off your bouquet with a special touch. Because no winter wedding bouquet is complete without a wrapped ribbon or bow on the stem, right?!
