For most people winter presents a dreary image, one that flowers don’t go with. If you’re getting married in the winter months, however, you are sure to be looking for blooms that are easily available in the current weather.
Don’t worry; there are some special, cold-friendly blossoms that will magnify the beauty of your wedding décor. Here are five beautiful flowers that occur naturally in North Carolina winter months.
These five-petaled flowers are grown and sold all around the year. Because of the many options that are available in color and design, these are popular flowers for the wedding season. Depending on your preferences, you can choose your favorite from different cultivars. One could say that the flowers are misnamed; they can turn out to be pretty tough after all. The centerpieces at your wedding could look great with pansies!
The winter jasmine has a striking yellow hue that stands out in any winter landscape. These bright flowers appear around early spring or late December. If you want to add a pop of color to your wedding décor, the winter jasmine could work out perfectly.
The English primrose is a soft, cream-colored dream. To preserve the subtlety and elegance of your winter wedding, you can use primroses in the bouquet, as centerpieces, as wall and aisle décor, as boutonnieres, as hair ornaments, or as anything you like! They are quite easily available in winter months.
The violet-colored viola can light up your wedding day with its happy color and intoxicating fragrance. It grows readily in winter months and comes in blue, yellow, white, and cream varieties. They may be smaller than pansies, but there are more flowers per plant. Depending on your personal style and what you would like to use them for, you can pick and choose the cultivar that’s best for you.
The beautifully vivid calendula flower can add a touch of fun to your wedding festivities. The petal-style of the flower is like a daisy’s, except that the center is yellow with bright orange inflorescence. If you want the flowers to be out-there, you can choose a vibrant shade of orange. But milder shades are also available. Calendulas would look fantastic as hair ornaments and stage décor!
Marrying in winters may seem like a lackluster idea to most—summer and spring are the happy seasons, aren’t they? But with these delightfully colorful winter flowers, we hope that you would give winter weddings a second shot.
