Florals bring warmth and beauty to your wedding during any season, and winter weddings are no exception. From lush greenery and classic white florals, to icy blues and rich and moody palettes, let Portland wedding florist Flowers by Alana inspire you with some of our favorite winter wedding bouquets as you plan your winter wedding.
01 | Winter Greens and Snowy Whites Bouquet
In many places, winter landscapes are lush with evergreen trees and blankets of snow, with little to no flowers blooming. It’s natural to opt for an all-greenery or all white floral palette to mirror the natural landscape of the season. Texture and variety give winter bouquets depth and interest when you aren’t using a lot of color. For this winter bride, Portland wedding florist Flowers by Alana designed a lush, greenery-focused winter wedding bouquet with mixed varieties of eucalyptus, ferns, and Italian ruscus, accented with texturally rich white blooms like garden roses and pops of the winter blue color of eryngium (blue thistle.)
02 | Classic White Bouquet
For a more classic bridal look, one may choose a more floral focused winter wedding bouquet with less wild accents of greenery than the first example. Flowers by Alana gave this winter wedding bouquet texture and variety using multiple types of ruffly-petaled white and cream florals paired with dark greenery with smooth texture and clean edges. White playa blanca roses, cream vendela roses, white spray roses, and white ranunculus were accented with dark green Italian ruscus for this classic, winter wedding bouquet.
03 | Modern Luxury Bouquet
Opting for a winter wedding bouquet that is floral focused without any greenery gives a modern luxury bridal look that has been trending the last few wedding seasons. Portland wedding florist Flowers by Alana designed this all white, modern luxe bridal bouquet in playa blanca roses, Phalaenopsis orchids, white Limonium, babies breath, and bleached and preserved Italian ruscus. Again, texture and variety is important when designing monotone floral designs. See more of this modern minimalist wedding in our blog.
04 | Dark and Moody Bouquet

Winter wedding bouquets can be all white or white with greenery, but don’t be afraid to also bring in color! For this couple’s winter wedding palette, we paired deep dark reds and dusty winter blues with white florals and greenery. Flowers by Alana designed this winter wedding bouquet rich in color and texture with white playa blanca roses, cream vendela roses, dark “black baccara” roses, pink ice protea, eryngium (blue thistle), privot berry, nandina, and mixed varieties of eucalyptus.
05 | Romantic Bouquet
For a romantic, vintage feel, some winter wedding bouquets have only color and omit white florals altogether. Portland wedding florist Flowers by Alana designed Chantelle’s winter wedding bouquet in taupe, winter blues, and deep dark reds, using safari sunset, baby blue eucalyptus, agonis, blue thistle, toffee roses, beige spray roses, dark red “hearts” roses.
06 | Blue Ice Bouquet
Some winter wedding couples want color but want something other than reds in their palette. Opting for a blue or purple palette is a beautiful choice for a winter wedding. Portland wedding florist Flowers by Alana designed this stunning winter wedding bouquet in winter blues and whites, using blue hydrangea, white and dark plum protea, white roses, blue thistle, blue delphinium, white with navy center anemone, privet berries, and mixed eucalyptus. See more from this Celestial Wedding styled shoot on the NW Wedding Underground blog, and on our blog as well.
07 | Purple Bouquet
Purple is another one of our favorite colors for a winter wedding bouquet. This Oregon coastal wedding actually took place in autumn (both the dahlias and the sunshine gave that away, didn’t they?), but purple definitely works in any season, especially as a winter wedding bouquet! Portland wedding florist Flowers by Alana created a full color story with this purple wedding bouquet with varying shades of purple, mauve, burgundy, and plum, paired with accents of silver greenery. The floral types featured include amnesia roses, calla lilies, dahlias, black baccara roses, smoke bush, limonium, agonis, amaranthus, and dusty miller.
