Beloved Flower Lover,
Having been at lots of weddings recently we were asked about flowers for a Christmas wedding. After some thought,this is our answer.
The first thing we know is that you need to be prepared for the fact that wedding flowers that close to Christmas may be tricky. Many florists may actually be closed, or have limited supplies from their wholesalers.
Lot’s of florists shut between Christmas and New Year, so it might be better to go for a freelance florist.
Flower prices are higher at this time of year. Another thing to keep in mind regarding your colour scheme is that red and white flowers tend to be a lot more expensive around Christmas.
Seasonal flowers at the end of December include Amaryllis, Tulips, Anemones, Waxflower, Orchids, Hellebores, Ranunculus and Narcissus.
Flowers that are available all year round include Roses, Freesia, Gerbera, Anthurium, Calla lily and Chrysanthemums.
Lots of love
The London Flower Lover
