It can be harder for florists to get certain flowers throughout the winter, but that doesn’t mean your centerpieces have to be boring. There are plenty of other beautiful materials for the tables at your winter wedding!
Greenery makes a statement in every season. It’s especially beautiful in winter, when the absence of other colors helps it stand out. Natural branches of driftwood or birch make lovely rustic centerpieces; evergreens can dress up tables at nearly any wedding. Ivy and other vines help soften metallic accents and add movement to centerpieces. Moss is also an on-trend winter greenery option.
Many venues will already be decorated for the holiday season during December. Carry the holiday décor throughout your reception by incorporating it into your centerpieces. Glass bulbs are pretty stacked on trays or corralled into jars. They’re available in lots of colors and finishes, which makes them an excellent way to add a bit of sparkle. Holly would be right at home in your centerpieces as well.
Winter offers less natural light than other seasons. Add light to your centerpieces to brighten your reception. Candles, lanterns and twinkle lights are all pretty options. To add height without bouquets in vases, lift candles with candlesticks of varying heights.
There are plenty of natural centerpiece materials that aren’t flowers. Pinecones are pretty left natural or painted to complement your wedding’s other décor. Berries are a good way to add color to your tables without flowers. If you love the idea of vases, fill them with stalks of cotton. This material is very popular in home décor and can easily be glammed up for a rustic winter wedding.
