What Flowers Are Popular for Winter Weddings?

A winter wedding, while not as popular as those held in the spring and summer, can be a magical event. Outside, a fresh blanket of snow creates a peaceful scene, while inside, the warmth of the event accented by candlelight and winter-inspired decorations signifies the special love shared. Winter blooms are available in all shapes and sizes to help add beauty and character to a winter wedding day.

Roses

Roses, symbols of love, accent the event with timeless beauty and elegance. Popular winter rose colors include white, red, and hybrid black shades.

Gerbera Daisies

Gerbera daisies, with wide, eye-catching blooms, can create an atmosphere of life and joy against the white of winter. Available in shades of red, pink, yellow and white, these stunning blooms are also less costly than roses.

Poinsettias

Poinsettias are a popular selection for Christmas weddings. The blooms can be used in bouquets and arrangements, and the entire potted plant can be used for decorating the wedding and reception venues.

Carnations

With a scientific name that means "flower of love," the carnation is a fitting flower for celebrating a winter wedding. Available in a wide array of pinks, reds and variegated hues, the carnation is a versatile, affordable bloom.

Lilies

Lilies, including Stargazer, Calla and Lily of the Valley, create a simple, yet elegant winter wedding accent. Lilies add a touch of magic and come in a wide range of colors, from white to deep purple.
