Winter is the season that wedding florists like to get creative with. There may be fewer flowers in bloom during the colder months, but winter wedding bouquets are full of natural textures, rich colours and - depending on your theme - sparkling detail. Whether you’re going for a snowy wonderland, traditional Christmas or rustic theme, we’ve put together some of our favourite floral arrangements to inspire your choice of wedding day blooms…

This creative bouquet proves that winter flowers can be just as colourful as summer ones! We love the eclectic mix of eucalyptus, roses, elderberries and rosehips, and the pine cones and thistles add texture.
Foliage nearly always plays a big part in winter wedding bouquets. Sprigs of pine with traditional pink roses make a sweet combination, especially when wrapped in festive gold fabric. Hypericum berries are also a popular choice for winter bouquets, and come in shades ranging from soft pink to deep red to add warmth to the coldest season.

Sage green and white is the perfect modern colour scheme for a Christmas wedding. Anenomes are always popular for winter, and long stems of eucalyptus make a beautiful statement with a frosty feel.
Large blooms and eye-catching props can make your bouquet look fuller and more striking in photos. Go for flowers and foliage in varied lengths and add long feathers for an unusual style.

Amaryllis is a traditional Christmas flower that still looks modern when used at weddings. Arrange a few stems with glossy red peonies and you'll have a rich, luxurious bouquet. You could try this combination in winter white, too!
Don't have many colours to work with in your chosen season? Go monochrome with a chic bouquet that couples white anenomes and roses with dark foliage and ribbon. Simply stunning.

Red roses are a classic winter wedding flower for a reason - they look wonderful! Choose open blooms with a velvety texture and add sprigs of berries for a quirky twist on a winter favourite.
When in doubt, add metallics! Incorporate evergreen foliage sprayed with metallic gold paint to add a touch of sparkle to a traditional winter bouquet. Gold doesn't have to be overly festive either and works particularly well with blush and cream tones for a soft, romantic style.

Who says you can't choose pastels for winter? For a gorgeously feminine bouquet, mix blousy pink peonies and roses with cool-toned greenery for a pretty take on Christmas flowers.
If you're a festive fanatic, then incorporate your favourite season into your wedding flowers! Nestle baubles, pine cones and even sprayed fruit for a wonderfully dramatic bouquet.
