Pinterest Ideas

We recommend spending a lot of time getting inspiration for your wedding flowers. There are so many places you can get ideas from when it comes to your floral arrangements and bouquets.  Pinterest is a great place to start if you have an idea about your wedding’s colour scheme or theme.

Watch this video by Frankie Amelia for ideas on using Pinterest for her own wedding.

Social Media

Instagram and other social media sites are also a great place to search, as well as wedding blogs. Maybe you even want to take inspiration from some of the royal weddings.

Your wedding theme and colour scheme will have a big impact on which flowers you’ll choose for your wedding. The flowers you pick will have to fit into your theme, to pull together the overall aesthetic for your big day. Try to choose flowers whose colours compliment your wedding colour scheme, as well as suit your venue and dress. You can play with different tones and shades to create floral arrangements that truly compliment your big day.

Flower Meanings

The meanings of flowers can also play a big part in your floral choices and may give you some wedding flowers ideas. Search online or ask your florist for the meanings behind certain blooms. Here are some flower meanings to get you started.  You might want flowers with happy, romantic meanings.

Rose and lilacs represent love and romance, making them perfect choices for your wedding day.

Or, you might choose flowers that have a special significance to just you and your partner – perhaps the first flowers he ever bought you?

Seasonal Flowers

Finally, the seasons will have a big impact on the flowers you can choose from. Some flowers are only in season at certain times of the year. Your florist will know which flowers are available to use, and will be blooming at the date of your wedding. If your favourites aren’t available, consider similar alternatives, to keep prices down. If you’re having a winter wedding, read our blog article on beautiful winter flowers to use.

Winter Wedding Ideas

Winter Wedding Ideas

There’s no doubt that the colder seasons are some of the most romantic times of the year. It’s chilly outside, so everyone is cuddling up by a cosy fireplace, enjoying the festive feeling. So what better time to host your wedding! A winter wedding can be a beautifully romantic occasion, but you might be stuck when deciding on a theme to fit the season. Here’s our top five ideas for a winter wedding theme to give you some inspiration…


1. Layer it up

Layers are essential for the cold weather, and we’re not talking about your bridal look. Draping fabric around your wedding venue can completely transform your space, and turn it into a warm winter wonderland. Think flowing, billowy linens on the tables and chairs to keep the space looking soft, and floor to ceiling fabrics. You can also mix it up with some fairy lights and candles to add to the cosy feel of the venue.

2. Freeze your flowers

Want a totally eye-catching and different way to display your floral arrangements? Put it on ice – literally.  A huge trend in 2018 winter weddings is to display frozen flower arrangements, for an ice-castle vibe. The frozen water will make bright colours even more vivid, so this is a great idea if your colour scheme is bold.  Lots more ideas on Pinterest

3. Comfort foods

Winter weddings are a great opportunity to play around with the traditional wedding food. When the weather is cold outside, we reach for hot and hearty foods, and your wedding doesn’t have to be an exception. Think of your favourite comfort foods like hot soups, braised beef casserole with dumplings and sticky red cabbage on the side; warm pastries and pies and the ultimate, baked brie and mulled wine!

4. Think Green

Dark greenery lends itself to a winter wedding, as the colours stand out perfectly against your bridal dress. Designing a bouquet with a lot of leaves and green flowers is a great idea for a winter wedding. You can also adorn your venue with wintery trees and plants to make it a real winter wonderland.

5. Faux Fur

Nothing will make you feel warmer in the cold than faux fur accents. Drape this fabric to the back of chairs, or invest in a soft faux fur wrap to go over your wedding dress. You can also use faux fur around your venue to really add to the warmth and create the cosy vibes.
