you can always ask a florist if there’s anything they can do for the flowers. they would also know which types would fare better than others. i got married in the winter but it was in san francisco so the temps weren’t that cold. i wanted peonies but they weren’t in season so i ended up with white roses. i’m not opposed to silk flowers either though so if you find some you love, then i say go for it!

So I’m not sure how fast flowers will wilt in the cold, and I’d imagine you won’t be spending a ton of time in -5 or -10 degree temps taking pictures. Below freezing is under 32 degrees, and I don’t think you’ll have a problem there. Ask your florist if they think it will be an issue. I kind of doubt 15 minutes in temperatures like that (IF you can stand it that long) will have an effect on them. 

btw, I’m getting married in the winter too, and haven’t given this a second thought. 

You could also consider using some non-floral aspects to your bouquet – pine cones, hardier greenery, etc.
