Expert advice from Tracy Rowbottom, Floristry expert at Country Baskets
Winter bouquets are made up of gorgeous rich winter varieties, textures and styles and this winter texture is key, dresses are in heavier textured fabrics such as velvet, furs and rich lace and this should be subtly shadowed in the bouquets. Include touches of lace, fur or velvet to frame the bouquet.
Lots of seasonal foliage’s such as pine, juniper, eucalyptus and rosemary give the feel and scent of winter but also serve to protect the delicate blooms in the bouquet.
Bouquets range from shades of whites and greens with little hints of winter, a smattering of glitter or a little rosemary and pine to give a winter scent to rich opulent designs of Amaryllis, velvety roses, berries and lots of rich cascading foliage’s. Combine gorgeous rich foliage’s with glitter edged tiny pine cones, succulents and orchids to follow on from the summer trend of the Gatsby style wedding.
The bouquet should complement the bride and not overpower her so take care when selecting the heavier winter foliage’s and flowers to balance well with the style of the gown.
