Think outside the box for winter wedding florals, says planner Liz Singleton, of Events by Elizabeth Palmer. "Winter doesn't automatically mean silver, red and white. Creams and pinks with the lambs ear made the arrangement perfect for winter, giving it quite a bit of texture along with a more soft and romantic look. Gold is a fun metallic to pair with winter arrangements because typically, people think silver equals snow. Gold, however, helps create warmth with the candlelight and again, enhances the romantic undertones.” This lantern arrangement uses pink and ivory roses, blush peonies and Dusty miller. Florist: Flowers by Zoie.
