Winter Wedding Centerpieces That Nod to the Season
So, you're worried that winter's a bad time to pull off beautiful wedding reception arrangements? You have no reason to be. The colder months may be less hospitable to some flowers, but there are still ways to incorporate gorgeous blooms into your big day. Better yet, you might be pushed to use gorgeous nonfloral elements, like candles. All in all, winter's as good a time as any to have stunning wedding décor. In fact, we're willing to bet that these winter centerpiece ideas will leave you craving a December, January, February, or March celebration.
To fully embrace all the season has to offer, you have a few options. First, you can work with in-season flowers, or blooms that are available year-round. These include everything from roses to tulips. Now's the time to include other natural materials in your decorations, too—think: evergreen sprigs, pine cones, berries, and the like. Second, you can utilize elements associated with winter and its many holidays. Garlands used as table runners are festive options, for example. Third, you can work with seasonal colors, like red, purple, and metallics. With all these possibilities, it's actually easy to come up with centerpieces that suit your event!
The arrangements shown here, by Just So. Event Floral, featured plenty of wintry touches, from the warm hues, to the pops of snowy white, to the gold vessels they were placed in. They're just one of our favorite ways to nod to the season at your cold-weather reception. To see the rest, continue browsing our roundup of winter wedding centerpieces.
