If you're having a winter wedding, featuring seasonal elements like pinecones and bright-red berries will add a festive touch to your wedding flowers. Another great wintry addition? Fresh-cut evergreen boughs, which add texture as well as a bright pop of green to everything from the bouquets and boutonnieres to the centerpieces. Best of all, they're in season right now and are very affordable, so if you're on a tight budget, swap out some flowers for evergreens and you'll have yourself the perfect winter arrangement.
