The weather has turned a little cooler and before we know it the season will change again. Winter brides everywhere are rejoicing. They are also probably checking off their to-do lists like a girl boss. It would be a great idea at this moment in your timeline to figure out your bouquet. Not just the colors you are lusting after, but the elements that will make your flowers unique. This past summer we saw succulents take center stage as the accent of choice. Sask Ever After asked Michelle of Michelle’s Flowers what to expect to be the trend in winter bouquets.
For winter 2016, what seasonal accents can I incorporate into my bouquet or center pieces?
Seasonal winter elements such as evergreens, pinecones, and berries are always the most popular. In terms of flowers and their color, silver brunia is a hit for most winter weddings, and a rich red rose is classic. However, a few of our faves at the shop are Douglas fir (for greenery), illex berries and seeded eucalyptus (accent/filler flowers), and rounded pine cones (rustic and earthy accent). They are all going to add an element of exclusivity that will set your flowers apart from the same go-to winter petals.
