For those of you who had a church wedding, did you/will you do your ceremony flowers in white or in your wedding colors? I like the idea of using pink, but I have a sense that white is more traditional.
For background: our colors are pink & grey, and the bridesmaids’ dresses are grey. Their bouquets will be pink, mine will be white with a little bit of blush pink. We’re getting married in a pretty traditional-looking church with one big altar arrangement. There’s kind of a cloth backdrop behind the altar – it’s normally green, but they put up a white one for holy days, and I may be able to get them to use white during our wedding.

If you’re gonna get them to use the white backdrop for your wedding then I don’t think that using all white flowers would really stand out. Why not use both the pink and white flowers together with a hint of grey in order for it to really stand out against the white backdrop? The choice is entirely up to you, but since I haven’t seen your church and what you’ll be using its hard to say. But since you said white is more traditional and it sounds like that maybe what you want, then do mostly white flowers with hints of the pink if that sounds better. Hope this helps By the way congrats on your engagement! Good luck with the planning!

I am also having a traditional church wedding. My bridesmaids dresses are eggplant. They will be having ivory rose bouquets just like mine but smaller. I am putting ivory roses in the church. At the alter and down the pews.
Good luck & it will be beautiful!!

Our colors are the same as yours, grey dresses with pink flowers. I am actually having our florist make church decorations out of just greens, like herbs and branches. Eucalyptus, magnolia, etc. Also some "grey" leaves, like dusty miller. The entire inside of the church is white, so I figured white flowers would get lost, even though I did want something more classic and traditional. And I don’t really want to cover everything in pink (it’s a small church). I think they’ll add those hypericum berries, they come in a nice pink color that’s not too overwhelming. GL w/ your choice!

For our church wedding, we are having pink altar flowers to match the rest of our color scheme. Our florist might throw in a few white flowers, too, depending on what is available. Use whichever color you want! I’m sure it will look just fine.

I had similiar colors and I chose to mix a blush pink flower with white flowers. We also decorated the candleholders on the altar with some ivy and white and blush pink flowers. I think it added some color but was not too much either.

We are having a traditional church ceremony but we will be using bright pink, green, and orange flowers. It brings some color to an otherwise traditional setting 🙂

I would use pink or a mixture or white and pink. You really want the alter arrangement to POP and bring everyone’s attention to the front so you and your FI are the center of attention.

I think adding pink to the arrangement would look nice.
