A White Wedding to Remember

Billy Idol was really on to something.

Without a doubt, white and green is one of the most ubiquitous color palettes for wedding florals, and for good reason: it's timeless. However, with a color scheme so classic, the challenge comes down to creating something uniquely beautiful to best tell each couple's individual love story. No two stories are the same, so why would your wedding flowers be?

Crystal and Derek desired a white and green palette for their May wedding. After speaking with our bride, we were able to dial in a few keywords that would help inspire her floral design: spring, romantic, and delicate.

For Crystal's bridal bouquet, her one request was incorporating peonies. While May tends to be early for Colorado-grown peonies, we were fortunate to be able to order some in from a warmer climate. In addition, we worked in locally grown ranunculus and single-petal stock, sweet peas, garden roses, and touches of spirea for some movement and texture. To keep the design light and romantic, we decided to not use any foliage. The pops of green came from the flower stems themselves. The confluence of these blooms made for such a fragrant spring bouquet!

Another design element that we were so excited to bring to life was the reception centerpieces. Textured floral runners are sure to wow your guests, and bring a romantic garden-vibe to your dinner. They are most frequently requested for head tables due to their more premium cost, however, since Crystal and Derek were having a more intimate celebration, they wanted all of the guest tables to have this luxurious floral treatment.

In order to keep the design light and delicate, we decided not to use any heavy or large focal blooms. Instead, we kept to petite focal blooms like locally grown ranunculus and anemones. For light and airy movement, we incorporated dancing stems of sweet peas and spirea, and used single-petal stock and majolica spray roses for coverage. Spring is a great time for camellia foliage, and we love the dark green contrast it brought to the white blooms.

The tables were finished with pale grey pillar candles, ornate dinner menus, and fresh blue berries strewn across the table. We absolutely love how the blueberries complimented the dark centers of the anemones.

If you are considering a white and green palette for your wedding, consider asking your florist which flowers look the best for your wedding date. Don't be afraid to think outside the box to make your white wedding uniquely you.
