Wedding flowers for January

If you are planning on tying the knot in January, you want to make sure that you decorate this special event just right. There are plenty of options to consider when shopping for January wedding flowers. Here are some points to keep in mind and options you will love.

Ceremony and reception

Before you choose your wedding flowers, it’s important to remember that you will need to select the right blooms for both the ceremony and your reception. If you are on a budget, you can always have a trusted friend or family member to take the arrangements from your ceremony to add to those at the reception.

White blooms

A white colour scheme is very popular choice for wedding flowers throughout the year, including January. The good news is that there are plenty of white blooms available this time of year. You can ask your florist about carnations, roses, lilies and even chrysanthemums. Find out the price per stem and make your choice accordingly.

Tall displays

While some of your arrangements will need to be short (like centrepieces), you will also need some taller displays for areas like empty corners in your reception hall. Displayed on a stand or in tall vases, you can be sure that they will make the room look amazing.

Decorate place settings

If you want to add something special to each place setting, you can place a small waterproof container on each place and add a short-stemmed flower to it. Some of the best options include roses, carnations or blooms similar in size.

When shopping for January wedding flowers, here are some popular options:

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

If you want to spruce up an otherwise white bouquet, you could always add some light pink blooms here and there. By adding some pastels here and there, you can make your wedding flowers even more magical.
