Weddings around the Holidays a
Adding the Christmas spirit to your wedding is easy with flowers. Start with greenery – Norfolk pines, pine boughs, mistletoe, ivy and more. Use small pine trees for centerpieces or altar decorations. Boughs make lovely wreaths, and you can even create gorgeous garlands out of fresh pine.
For the flowers, there are many options to choose from. Red roses, carnations and gerbera daisies make beautiful bouquets and decorations. Potted amaryllis and poinsettias are excellent centerpieces that your guests can take home to enjoy through the rest of the Holiday Season.
New Year’s Weddings
New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day are a celebration of transitions and new beginnings. Since New Year’s is such a festive time of year, you’re free to go wild with your color choices. New Year’s Eve celebrations are normally marked by bright party favors and decorations in any color you can imagine. To add riotous New Year’s color to your wedding, use flowers like gerbera daisies and roses. Both of these kinds of flowers come in a variety of bright shades that you can mix and match to your heart’s content.
There are also several unusual flowers you can use for a New Year’s wedding. Bright purple orchids will add an exotic look to your decorations, while birds of paradise will make your wedding or reception feel like a party!
Totally white weddings are very popular around the Holidays, and with good reason. White flowers and decor add an elegance that is beyond comparison. For your white wedding, use tall flowers like gladioli, white delphinium or snapdragons as the altar flowers. Roses, hydrangeas and calla lilies make gorgeous snow-white bouquets. Add an extra frosty touch with bright white lilies. These large blossoms make eye-catching decorations for the aisle, and they’ll stand out among your bridal bouquet, too.
