January is usually seen as the dull month, a slow start to the year where people start to diet or go on detox. I think this is wrong and what better what to kick start the year than with a wedding! Usually a month for admin, enquries and consultation, this year January has been filled with wedding flowers too for me at The Rose Shed. I thought that I would share with you some fabulous options for seasonal wedding flowers in January.
The markets are full of lots of the early signs of spring so January brides do not feel at a loss, you will have hellbores, narcissi, ranunculus, anemones, tulips… the list really does go on! And all of these beautiful flowers are such a welcome delight to see after the month long marathon of wreath making and spruce stained hands. The more dainty and delicate spring blooms make way through the thick stemmed amaryllis. The bouquet below is a tightly packed, beautiful arrangement of simple white narcissi amongst viburnum foliage. A classic and elegant bouquet which will never date, and with the beautiful scent from the narcissi what more could you want?
Hyacinths also start to trickle through from the end of December, they come in blues, pinks, whites, dark reds, and have a magnificent scent. Equally they work well in potted form by using the bulbs in pretty containers for wedding decoration. This brides hand tie is filed with seasonal spring flowers available in January: anemones, tulips, ranunculus, hyacinths with a good helping of wax flower and eucalyptus.
To me there is nothing more beautiful than the ranunculus and when in season I think they are a beautiful addition to any bouquet. A soft, blousy flower they are of the same flower as a peony and have that whimsical, soft feel about them. Great for buttonholes too they are a hit with the guys too! I love this bouquet full of orange and ivory ranunculus, with peach roses and scabiosa seed heads. A real warming combination for a chilly January wedding!
