With many brides wearing ivory gowns, cream is a popular choice for wedding flowers. Softer than pure white, cream flowers are available in many varieties and tones, working beautifully on their own or combining with other colours.

Let’s take a look at some of our favourite cream blooms, and effective designs.

Chrysanthemums

Chrysanthemums are large, bold flowers and the cream variety look stunning used in bridal bouquets. Here we see a beautiful peach and cream bouquet with just a touch of foliage.

Rose

With so many roses to choose from, if you’re looking for a flower in cream or ivory, it’s always a good idea to know a few different varieties. ‘Avalanche’ roses are a popular choice, with a hint of green to their petals and sometimes tiny deep pink spots.
