Is there anything more magical than a Christmas wedding? At Walter Knoll Florist, we love to help plan sparkling, shimmering holiday events that will surpass the expectations of our brides and grooms – but we need to start early! It may be hot and humid outside, but now is the perfect time to speak to your wedding florist about your dream day. It will be here before you know it.
What will that day look like visually? The most popular color palette during the holidays is either red, white or a combination of the two. These colors are often accented with metallic elements or black details. Seasonal splashes of red can be added to a winter white bouquet by adding holly berries; while an icy effect can be added with crystal strands and beads. Black and white weddings are incredibly sophisticated and elegant, and very popular for New Year’s nuptials. Simply adding a red napkin or single red rose will create a dramatic and elegant effect. If you need more ideas, or are looking to go with a non-traditional color palette, our floral designers have a wealth of knowledge to inspire you!
There are a few challenges to pulling off a December or January wedding. During the holidays, brides compete with corporate and social events of all kinds; for venues, for entertainment, for caterers – and for flowers! Therefore having all the major resources booked six months in advance is the smart way to ensure that you will have access to everything you need, just the way you want it. A winter bride is also likely to have some pretty specific ideas about her bouquets, centerpieces and venue decor; however, her favorite flower may not be in season. A face to face consultation with a wedding designer will allow her to see alternative flowers that will provide the same aesthetic effect, as well as experiment with blooms that will be more accessible in that season. Walter Knoll Florist’s floral coordinators also have years of experience in staging weddings at Saint Louis venues, meaning we can assist in advising you as to the best florals for the space.
It may be July, but we are planning for the holidays! If you are too, give us a call. We’d love to help you create the winter wedding you’ve always dreamed of.
