Wedding Flowers for February and March
Its that time of year when we batten down the hatches, and generally try and avoid those cold, rainy, blowing a hooley days. (If you’re anything like me sat here mid-Feb with my thick woolly santa socks on, hoodie and hot air blower on my feet as I type).
But head out on a rare sunny winters’ day and you’ll see some absolute beauties of flowers in gardens all around you, which are perfect if you are looking for a british, seasonal bridal bouquet for your wedding flowers.
Lets take a quick run through some of the more common flowers you are likely to see this time of year:
Hellebores – otherwise known as the Christmas rose, its part of the ranunculaceae family, and symbolises serenity, tranquility and peace. An absolute favourite of mine, they can be found in purples, pink, greens, white and even black.
Fritillaries – part of the lily family, and better known as snakes head. They mainly come in white and plum colours, a beautiful delicate flower.
Anemones – belong to the same family as Hellebores, and are also known as “wind flowers”, as the word anemone derives from the greek words anemos, meaning winds. Commonly seen in purple, white, pink, red and plum.
Narciccisus – Part of the amaryllis family, more commonly known as the daffodil, associated with the greek word narke. Come in a range of yellow, cream and apricot colours.
Hyancinths – native of the eastern Mediterranean but often seen growing in the UK, they are a beautiful bulbous fragrant flowering plant. in white and purple. Hyacinths represent constancy and peace of mind.
Team these with some seasonal heather with white and rich purple spikes, tulips and other winter- early spring flowers and foliage such as hebe, skimmia, alstroemeria and forsythia for a fabulous winter-spring crossover bouquet.
