Should the Bride Carry White or Color?


Take Our Poll“Should I carry white or color?”  This is a very common question we get from Brides. It can be a difficult question to answer.  I feel you can only answer this question properly by knowing what  your dress looks like.  The truth is that if your florist does not ask you this question, they are doing you a great injustice. Your wedding dress is one of the most important dresses you will probably every buy and will reflect a bit of your unique style. Shouldn’t the flowers be there just to accent it, not take it over?

Another thing you will want to consider is your photography.  How will your bridal bouquet show up in your photos?  Be sure to ask your photographer to be aware of this if you go with light colors.

Below are some images I love that show how the flowers truly accent the dresses perfectly:

Oheka Castle Wedding Spring Flowers

This couple selected the infamous Oheka Castle for their wedding.  The color pallet was a neutral white and green with lots of candles for accent lighting.  Notice the main entrance Oheka with the lush garland and the candles sets the tone for a romantic feel.

Love this table setting for a winter wedding, especially if it's supposed to snow!:

want something like this; white aisle runner with roses next to the outline, and some candles or lanterns or flowers at every other pew/row.:


This centerpiece is sure to 'wow' with elegant details. Hanging tea lights is a wonderful idea, but much safer for guests with Candle Impressions flameless tea lights.:
