White is traditionally associated with weddings and there is perhaps nothing more romantic or elegant than an arrangement of glorious white wedding flowers. Let’s take a look at some of our favourite white blooms, from contemporary calla lilies to romantic roses.
The perfect choice for a centrepiece, amaryllis is also known as a belladonna lily. An amaryllis bouquet would definitely suit a contemporary wedding too.

Pretty as a picture, asters are daisies and a great filler for a country style venue. White asters combine wonderfully with other country blooms such as lavender and muscari too.

Carnations look wonderful on their own, tightly packed in bouquets or arrangements. Alternatively, wow your guests with a beautiful floral curtain.

Also known as baby’s breath, gypsophila is a pretty flowering plant often used in arrangements. It’s also relatively inexpensive making it a great choice to use as a filler or by itself. It makes for an effortlessly romantic bouquet addition or chair decoration for your ceremony.

Available in many colours, hydrangeas are oh-so-pretty and can be used throughout your day. They’re a must in a white floral display and look great as pew end decorations.

Lily of the Valley
Delicate and with a beautiful fragrance, lily of the valley can be expensive so is often used sparingly, perhaps just in your bouquet. Saying that, this breathtaking arrangement is stunning!

The ultimate wedding flower, roses are available in so many shades, including lots of incredible shades of white and cream. They make a wonderful addition to a bouquet and look amazing when used on their own too!

A symbol of lasting happiness, sweet peas are beautifully scented but don’t last for long out of water. Consider having them in vases as part of your table centres.
Simple and elegant, tulips are wonderfully versatile and make great buttonholes. They’re perfect for a contemporary look when used on their own too.
If you love the idea of white flowers, why not carry it through with a completely white wedding theme.
