Winter wedding flowers

Wednesday, November 29, 2017

           Winter weddings are becoming increasingly popular  here at white-gdn. Festive weddings can be truly magical . Whilst there are some limitations on seasonal flower availability such as peonies (these really are summer season flowers  )there are still many varieties of flowers to choose from . Popular choices for the winter season include amaryllis,roses,ranunculus,berries,ivys, liseanthus and gypsophylia . Dark red large headed velvety petaled roses create a warm effect and mix well with berries to give  a rich Christmas appeal . Reds can be softened with romantic folliage trimmed with cones ,pussy willow and luxuriant ribbons .Alternatively white flower choices can look beautifully romantic combined in different varieties with accents of ivy ,fir cones and berries for texture .Christmas wedding whites also combine well with metallic accents such as  silver twigs or accessories . Christmas is a wonderful time to use a little or even a lot of sparkle .Silver or gold containers add to full out winter glamour and silver candle holders and sparkly christmas trims or baubles can all be incorporated well with this look .With careful planning and a few careful touches carried through the entire theme a winter wedding can be Festively fabulous! .   


White weddings

Thursday, July 20, 2017


         White weddings are back in vogue this season alongside romantic pastel colours .

     White enhances all things Victoriana in style and is a good choice to enhance a  lace theme,or wedding gown. Lace can be further enhanced by careful choice of flower with varied textures, babies breath, or waxflower shown above have both become popular choices. Care must always be taken to add just enough green relief in the design to ensure that the bouquet looks frothy and romantic ,enhancing the whole bridal theme but does not become invisible in all important photos when held against white dresses or tablecloths . When textures are skillfully combined the overall effect is a truly elegant affair
