When it comes to winter flowers, brides are in for a real treat. There’s an array of beautiful blooms around throughout this season, from dainty snowdrops to vibrant winter jasmine, and romantic ranunculus to pretty snowberry. In addition to all the winter classics, you’ll also find that some of the bridal favourites are also available all year round. These include roses, freesia, orchids, gerbera and calla lily – so you really are spoilt for choice!
Bloomin’ wonderful winter blooms
So now you’ve got an idea of what flowers are in season, but where do you start with creating the perfect bouquet? At Country House Wedding Venues we’re here to help by sharing our top ten winter wedding bouquets with you.

This beautiful, stylish wedding bouquet comes in one of this year’s hottest colours, grey. It’s guaranteed to complement most wedding themes – from vintage right through to ultra modern. The gorgeous bouquet features mini cymbidium orchids, silver brunia, juniper sprigs, pine boughs, anemones, pinecones, garden spray roses, seeded eucalyptus, Vendela roses, and dusty miller. A silk wrap adds a pretty finishing touch to this beautiful combination.
2) White anemone and gypsophila bouquet

We love the mix of delicate flowers with the bold colour palette of white and black. Whilst gypsophila is a traditional wedding flower filler, the unique style and colour palette of the anemone adds an interesting yet pretty touch to this stunning winter bouquet.
3) Pretty in pink bouquet

Just because it’s winter, it doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with your wedding flowers. This gorgeous bouquet features some of our wedding favourites including anemones, roses and ranunculus, all in beautiful shades of pink and white. We also love the idea of tying a gold sequin ribbon at the base of the bouquet to add some glamour and dreaminess to your wedding day flowers. Just add ruffles, sequins and a touch of gold to your décor and your fun, romantic wedding day look will be complete.
4) Berried ivy and rose bouquet

Choose pink, cream or red roses, depending on your wedding theme, and fill out your bouquet with berried ivy and foliage. The look works well with pretty and traditional weddings, or Great Gatsby style weddings. You may even wish to spray the berries gold for that extra special Gatsby glamour!
5) Foliage and berries

If you’re looking for a real Christmas inspired bouquet, how about this rustic, simple winter bouquet of foliage and red berries? It may not resemble the style of a more classic bouquet but that’s what we love about it – it’s natural and unique. The bouquet would work perfectly in boho or vintage style weddings, which combine natural elements and rustic style.
6) Dainty ranunculus bouquet

We do adore a bold bouquet but equally, a small, dainty bouquet like this peachy pastel ranunculus one is just as inspiring and wonderful. If you’re petite, or have a detailed wedding dress, a smaller bouquet often works better. You don’t want your wedding flowers to swamp you or to take away the beauty and detail of your wedding gown, so make sure you consider this when choosing the size of your bridal bouquet. This gorgeous winter combination features a pretty colour palette that would look lovely against a backdrop of a glistening frost lawn.
7) ‘Tis the season inspired bouquet

Taking a traditional wedding bouquet and incorporating wintery elements into it is a fantastic idea. It’s something you can do with virtually every seasonal flower – but works particularly well with more structured flowers like the calla lily. In this white cala lily bouquet, the florist has added snow sprayed pinecones, which add a natural, seasonal look to this elegant, timeless flower.
8) Simply succulents
We don’t see enough brides using succulents in their bouquet. It’s a real shame as they are a fabulous statement plant. For botanical beauty, combine green blue succulents with light, fresh seasonal flowers. The look is perfect for almost any wedding theme.
9) Winter brights

Looking to include some bold, bright colours into your winter wedding? Just because you’ve opted to celebrate your wedding during the winter months, doesn’t mean you have to stick to winter colours. We love this bright pink and red winter bouquet that combines lush pink peonies with roses, red anemone and berries. It really does prove the red and pink colour palette is a match made in heaven!
10) Red roses

Our top ten list of winter wedding bouquets wouldn’t be complete without the inclusion of the classic red rose. A red rose bouquet doesn’t have to look prim and proper though. You can still add some real personality and flair to your classic bouquet by adding some wild foliage and accessorising with red ribbon streamers.
