I’m meeting with a florist and when I stated on the phone that I was looking for an all white bouquet, she tried to talk me out of it. She said that I would probably want some color since I’m wearing a white dress. I’ve always thought all white flowers looked elegant.
Anyone have any pictures they would like to share and advice?

I was going to do an all baby’s breath bouquet but I recently saw these ameonm (or something like that) with a black center flower on the boards.. and I LOVE them!

I started with the concept of having pale peachy flowers and shifted to all whites for various reasons. I do love how elegant the white will look, and I hope to have green elements — not as accents but just as natural occurrences. Here are my inspiration pics:
I think it’s such a clean look, and the textures should add interest. As these pictures show, it’s not like all white flowers mean a solid colorless mass of the exact same shade that will blend into your dress! “White flowers” span a spectrum of cream to greenish to brightwhite to pale yellow. If you like all white, go for it! It’s not your florists’ wedding; s/he can have color at his/her own.

I don’t think it’s uncommon to do a white bouquet — if that’s what you want, just kindly & firmly tell her so 🙂

It is very classic to do an all white boquet. The new trend is colored…but that by no means means that an all white boquet isnt goregous…if it wasnt it would be tradition for so many years ;). If that is what you want just be firm and if shes not flexible find someone else. My florist said the same thing about my boquet…but in the end she stated she had got so many compliements on it in her shop while she was creating it. So just because she cant see your vision doesnt mean it wont be beautiful 🙂

please remember to add some texture, otherwise it’s a nightmare for the photographer.

this post is funny to me because I’ve had the exact opposite experience… I told my florist I want a colorful bouquet and he’s trying to talk me into all white! do whatever makes you happy! 🙂

I chose a colored boquet because I don’t like the white on white look. I also had colored shoes and hairpiece.
