The selection of winter flowers may seem limited, but there are many varieties that are available through florists year-round. Roses, for instance, are a summer flower, but can be found in any color virtually any month of the year. Orchids, one of the most popular and traditional wedding blooms, come in multiple colors, strengths, and price ranges. Cymbidium orchids (expensive) range from a vibrant green, to hot pink, to stark white. The centers of the flower also vary in color. Cattleya orchids are large, delicate blossoms found in shades of white with pink or lavender centers (very expensive). Dendrobium orchids are available in colors ranging from pinks to purples, and are sturdy as well as moderately priced.
For flowers in winter white, baby’s breath, chrysanthemums, and roses top the list. For jewel tones, gerbera daisies, alstroemeria, and chrysanthemums (they come in red and purple, too) are striking, affordable choices for winter.
