Wedding ideas by colour: White flowers

For your all white wedding nothing looks prettier and stands out more than beautiful white flowers. Take a look here for inspiration and ideas.

Many of us choose white as our wedding flower colour, and for so many reasons. White flowers are versatile, suit all themes and venues, are available throughout the year and come in many varieties. As well as being a colour that we generally associate with weddings, white flowers are stunning. Let’s take a look at a few of our favourite arrangements, from buttonholes and bouquets to table centres.

The Buttonhole

White flowers make the perfect buttonhole, standing out on a smart lapel whatever your grooms choice of suit colour. A simple white rose accompanied by a little foliage is classic and elegant.

For a contemporary alternative to the rose, consider an orchid buttonhole – equally striking and perfect for a city wedding.

The Bridal Accessories

For a country wedding, forget the jewelled tiaras and hairpins and opt for fresh flowers in your hair instead. These delicate white flowers weaved in to the hair look beautiful – the perfect accessory for a boho style wedding.

Of course, flowers in your hair can also be perfectly suited to a more contemporary style of wedding. This exquisite headpiece with white fabric flowers is stunning.

The Bouquet

When it comes to bouquets, there is perhaps nothing more breath-taking than a pure white bouquet, shown here with this beautiful arrangement of white peonies.

For a less formal, more rustic bouquet, hand tied daisies and garden flowers are oh-so romantic…

… and a teardrop bouquet of white blooms with trailing foliage is slightly structured while still being informal - the perfect choice for a country wedding.

Add depth and interest to a white bouquet without adding colour. Here the addition of smoky grey is added through eye-catching anemones.

Bouvardia, a smaller flower, makes a most delicate white bouquet. It’s also a lovely choice for buttonholes.

This might just be one of our favourites…roses, hydrangea and gypsophila, hand tied with thick white ribbon. Simple yet stunning, and with a wonderful delicate fragrance.

The Table Arrangements

Impressive, tall arrangements don’t have to cost the earth. Here, striking slim vases in a uniform row make a real impact, while the flowers are simple arrangements of gypsophila.

For contemporary style, tightly packed roses and ranunculus with no hint of foliage work perfectly. The mirrored vases, runner and candlelight add the glamour.

Showing once more how elegant white flowers speak for themselves, heads of hydrangea sit in simple glass vases. Their abundance and uniform height creates the opulent end result.
