White flowers that are pure beauty
White has been interwoven with weddings for centuries—in its symbolism, its simplicity, its freshness, its boldness and more. When you embrace white beyond the traditional bridal gown, to actually paint the white wedding picture, flowers become the frame, the canvas and the object d’art all at the same time. So cheers to Mother Nature and her spectacular selection of white—be they creamy, milky, snowy, chalky, silvery, gray-toned, peach-toned, blush-toned—florals.
When you choose to go with varying shades of whites and creams for flowers, whether in your bouquet, the centerpiece or other decor, varying shades are important to give an arrangement depth as are the textures of the flowers selected. Look for different size flowers and shape petals (think of roses and delphinium), petal count (consider lisianthus and ranunculus) or those flowers that have delicate details (like anemones and calla lilies). Consider too the shape of the arrangement you are thinking of, whether the bridal bouquet or centerpieces or other decor when dreaming up the design.
As for symbolism, most flowers, when “done” in white, speak to purity, new beginnings, goodness, honor and similar. This next step in your romantic journey is nothing if not new and fresh so get creative within your white space, dot it with greens, golds, silvers to add even more texture and a bit of foundation or whimsy and embrace the magic of the day and your future.
