Winter is right around the corner, and with it comes cold weather, warm cups of hot cocoa, and GORGEOUS winter weddings. If you’re a winter bride-to-be, you’re probably in the midst of planning your big day. Hence the very idea of flowers might be freaking you out. Which flowers are in season in winter? What colors are appropriate? Here are three of my absolute favorite flowers for your bouquet and to decorate your venue this winter.

Anemone

The anemone, or “windflower,” is a beautiful flower with wide, open petals and a fuzzy center (that looks a bit like a sea anemone). These can come in a variety of deep, rich colors as pictured. But, they are most commonly white with dark black centers — a perfect look for a white winter wedding! Anemones are readily available, and they always look stunning in a minimalist bouquet.

Roses

Roses come in so many colors and three basic types – standard roses, garden roses, and spray roses. There’s even a sweetheart which is a slightly smaller version of the standard rose. They are available all year round. And, given their reputation for romance, they’re a very popular choice for wedding decor. I believe roses are especially perfect for a winter wedding because of their deep, rich colors. Whether you opt for a classic red rose, a deep burgundy, or a snowy white one, the result will be something truly eye-catching.

Poinsettia

If you’re getting married in the winter (particularly in December), Christmas decorations are basically inevitable. Businesses, homes, and even cars are getting decked out for the season, so why not lean in to it for your special day? Big, red, pink, or white poinsettia flowers make for festive decor during the holidays, and your wedding will look just as “merry and bright” if you use them in your centerpieces and bouquets.


These beautiful flowers are an excellent choice for any wedding, but they’re especially great during the winter months!
