Choosing Your Winter Flower Colors

White and Red Roses With Green Ribbon Accent

Be careful when choosing white, red, or green flowers and leaves/accessories. Take a small swatch of fabric of your wedding gown and of the bridesmaid's dresses to the florist.

As with all colors, these three come in varying shades and you'll want to get your flowers and leaves to match or at least compliment your attire.

Whites come in shades ranging from brilliant pure white to ivory. And as we all know, reds can be hard to match up.

Flower Meanings

Various meanings have been associated with all types of flowers over the centuries. A white rose doesn't have the same meaning as a red rose, so colors are also an important part in learning the meaning of a certain type of flower.
