If you're getting married in the winter, you can generally expect to receive big discounts from most of your vendors during this less-popular season. The exception — your florist. While you can save big by choosing in-season blooms, you still may not find as many budget-friendly options as spring or summer brides. Lately, we've seen many winter brides eschewing flowers altogether and choosing keepsake bouquets instead. Here, some of our favorite ideas.
Using pinecones is a wonderful way to reflect the season. Add some pine branches, wheat, or flowers carved from birch to fill out the bouquet.
