The white wedding theme is as classic as can be. Pure, elegant and timeless, white is the colour most of us associate with weddings.

More often than not, white is chosen alongside another colour – perhaps winter white and green, white and silver or white and pink. Opting for an ‘all white’ wedding is a brave, bold choice which can give striking results. It’s time to be inspired by these fabulous examples…

You’re Invited

Let’s start at the very beginning with stationery. Your invitation gives the first indication to guests as to the style of your wedding. If you’re going ‘all white’, make sure your stationery fits the bill.

Dress to Impress

Bridesmaids look beautiful in white, and they will never upstage the bride! While they wear the same colour, the bride’s dress should be a different style altogether and, while they all carry white flowers, the bride’s is likely to be a larger, more intricate bouquet.

Fabulous Florals

Think of your bouquet as the ultimate accessory. There is quite possibly nothing more stunning than a white bridal bouquet.

Don’t forget the Groom!

Although your theme is ‘all white’, your groom and his ushers are unlikely to wear white suits. Choose instead a pale-coloured suit for a summer wedding, or opt for white tie at an evening celebration.

Saying ‘I do’

Introduce white to your ceremony by using flowers wherever possible. Lining the aisle with small posies of gypsophila is effective and relatively inexpensive, and you can use the flowers again at your reception. White or cream seats, and an aisle runner complete the look but aren’t essential.

Beautiful Blooms

Large flower arrangements are always impressive, and you don’t need many to make an impact. Place one or two in prime locations – where you think guests might gather and where photographs might be taken.

Please be Seated

When it comes to your table decorations, all you need is crisp white linen, elegant china and some floral details. Chair decorations look beautiful but can be expensive – why not just have them on the top table?

Classic Table Design

These tables show just how beautiful a simple table can be. The addition of a glass candelabra is a great idea – introducing candlelight as the sun goes down.

Centre Stage

We love these white wedding ideas. For table centres, stick to pure white blooms and glass vases with occasional tea-lights. It’s always wise to have flower arrangements at different heights, adding interest to the table.

Perfectly So

Sometimes all you need is a beautiful plate, a crisp white napkin, exquisite stationery and a single bloom.

Your Number’s Up

When it comes to seating plans and table numbers, we love this idea. Present each person with an escort card in a miniature frame. It’s a seating plan and favour in one.

The Cookie Crumbles

Intricately decorated cookies also make fun favours, and here we see them in white. Add a personal element by writing guest names or initials on each one.

Scrumptious Cakes

We love nothing more than a meticulously iced cake, and the classic white tiered cake remains as popular as ever. This white delight adorned with gypsophila would be just the thing for a summer wedding.

Take on the Texture

White is never dull, particularly when you choose textured icing. This cake is simple but stunning, and the fresh flowers complete the look.

And finally…

Don’t forget the details! On a summer’s day, every lady loves a parasol… and these just happen to fit in rather well with your all white colour scheme!
