Q My wife-to-be wants to create a winter wonderland for our December wedding. What flowers do you suggest we look for?
A Karen Woodhams says: A winter wedding can be a sophisticated paradise for any couple and the type of flowers used can vary. White bouquets are popular in the colder months, though a touch of colour can make the blooms stand out even more against your dress. A cascade style can mimic a snowdrift and look beautiful in photos, while crystal bouquets are a popular floral alternative to add to the wedding's icy ambience.

Holly or pine boughs are often the preferred greenery for floral arrangements in winter. Or use copious amounts of Gypsophila balls sprinkled with iridescent glitter sat on tall-silver candelabras dripping with sparkling jewels. You can have luscious white hydrangeas along with silver birch trees and white Mondial roses sitting amongst the branches. Each one would have a water source and, of course, the addition of fairylights.
