January flowers for the perfect wedding

Many people think that it is better to celebrate weddings during the warmer months of the year. However, winter weddings can be just as beautiful and perhaps even more comfortable for everyone wearing their formal attire. For starters, the bride won’t have to worry about sweating under all the layers of her dress. If you are concerned about the availability of January flowers, here are some tips and ideas.


Ravishing roses

If your main concern for those planning a wedding for this month is the type of January flowers to use to decorate the ceremony and reception areas. Contrary to popular belief, there are many options to choose from even if the weather is not at all pleasant. One of the most popular January flowers for many occasions is the rose. White or off-white roses may be just what you need to create a simple yet elegant and sophisticated centrepiece. White tulips and white lilies can also be used in the same way. You could also use a group of three small vases and place a different type of flower in each.


Taller arrangements

If you want taller displays, you can use a tall, cylindrical vase and place long-stemmed January flowers inside. The long stems should look almost like spaghetti when you remove them from the package and twist them slightly so that they are not pointing downwards. The angled stems create a wonderful look, especially when enlarged by the water in the vase.



If you wish, you can also add some January flowers to each table. Place a small waterproof box-shaped container in each location and place a short-stemmed flower inside. Suitable flowers include roses, carnations and anything similar in size.

When choosing your January flowers for your big day, here are some of the top options:

  • Agapanthus
  • Amaryllis
  • Anthurium
  • Anemone
  • Bouvardia
  • Chrysanthemum
  • Calla Lily
  • Cymbidium orchid
  • Carnation (as previously mentioned)
  • Freesia
  • Gloriosa
  • Gerbera Daisy
  • Hydrangea
  • Hyacinth
  • Iris
  • Lily
  • Lilac
  • Narcissus
  • Phalaenopsis Orchid
  • Tulip
  • Rose

If you want to add some colour to your arrangements, you can choose some light shades of pink or green to add to the mix. Light pastels are perfect for winter when your main colour scheme is white or off-white. Lighter colours are ideal when choosing January flowers since they will suit the current weather and outdoor landscape best.
