Winter is a lovely time for a wedding. This season presents a whole host of possibilities that aren't available with warm-weather weddings, including long-sleeved wedding dresses, snowy photo backgrounds, and winter-season foliage for bouquets. The cute bugs and flowers available from Bugs-n-Blooms are might seem more appropriate for spring and summer, but they are really much more versatile than that and make a lovely addition to winter weddings.
The invitations are the first part of your wedding that guests will see. For winter weddings, clean color schemes that pair white with blue, green, or black are popular. They might also use holiday colors and decorations, or images of snowflakes and ice sickles. If you're planning to use Bugs-n-Bloom decorations at the wedding, the invitations are a perfect place to add some red lady bugs, silvery blue butterflies, or lovely flowers that will be mirrored in the wedding decorations on your special day.
When decorating the wedding venue and reception hall in winter, the first thing that comes to mind is usually a winter wonderland setting. This is a popular theme, and is certainly a good choice for winter weddings. Hanging snowflake decorations and cascades of sparkling lights look lovely paired with wedding colors in shades of blue. Blue butterflies, like the triple-layer style from Bugs-n-Blooms, add a magical touch to winter wonderlands while sticking with the color theme.
Other winter wedding ideas include using an elegant black-and-white color scheme with just a touch of red for color. Shimmering ladybug decorations are a great way to add this spot of color, which can be carried into the flowers as well with red roses or mini ladybugs. Chairs and pillars can be decorated by tying ladybug curtain tie-backs around them.
Colors and design ideas for winter weddings aren't confined to variations on ice blues and black-and-white. You can also use bright colors and cheerful flower decorations to create a summery or tropical feel in the middle of winter. Another idea is to go with dark pink and red colors for a romantic look.
There are many types of flowers, berries, and greenery that are appropriate for a winter wedding. Roses are a staple for any wedding, and pair well with flowers like anemone, calla lily, or ranunculuses for winter. Hypericum berries, berzelia berries, rose hips, and viburnum berries add color and texture. Holly, eucalyptus, magnolia leaves, dusty miller, and boxwood make good foliage accents.
Winter wedding flowers can also include elements like pine cones, seed pods, and artificial flowers or insects. The mini decorations from Bugs-n-Bloom are perfect for adding to bouquets, boutonnieres, centerpieces, and other floral arrangements. They are available in dragonfly, butterfly, ladybug, bee, and flower designs that measure 2 or 3 inches. Easy to wire and add to designs, they are a great way to add extra color to floral arrangements or carry a theme throughout the wedding decorations.
