123 Days until Christmas: August 24th 2019

The Bank Holiday weekend in England marks 123 days until Christmas 2019. On what is going to be one of the hottest weekends of the year so far for many of us, Christmas is probably the last thing anyone is really thinking about today. But most children return back to school in the next week or two and will before you know it be preparing for Harvest Festival and then straight into learning their lines for the Christmas Nativity. For those of us who have to do the shopping, you won’t be pleased to hear there are just 18 weekends left before Christmas 2019.

Norwich Florist for Winter Weddings

Ohhh, isn’t there just something magical about a winter wedding!  All those possibilities for sumptuous rich fabrics such velvet bridesmaids dresses and fur wraps (fake fur that is) to keep off the crisp winter chill, beautifully lit evening Receptions, and maybe even fireworks, makes me wonder why most weddings are in the Spring/Summer.  Whether it is a December wedding with all the Christmas Sparkle or a New Years Eve celebration to greet the New Year with a promise of the best year yet for the happy couple, you will need flowers as even with the glitter of the season a wedding isn’t a wedding without flowers.

Winter Wedding Flowers look fabulous.  I will always love white roses and foliage for a wedding but you could change this to red roses are have both white and red.   It is most cost effective to consider flowers which have a year-round presence, such as roses, lisianthus, veronica, alstroemeria and gypsophila. Fortunately, these work well with the jewel-like tones that are popular with winter colour schemes.  Adding berries to your red rose bouquet is also an effective way of acknowledging you are happily getting married in Winter rather than Summer.

 

If you are lucky enough to live in East Anglia, you can always ask Norwich Wedding Florist Claire Carney of https://clairesfloralandballoondesigns.co.uk to design and deliver your wedding flowers to your budget and to achieve the look you are after.  Claire creates bespoke wedding flowers so there is no need to just select on a website and hope for the best.  Claire offers a personal touch and works with you to ensure you are happy with the results.
