What about colored calla lillies? I’m doing the two tone yellow and orange

I think any flower would look lovely. A friend of mine did a bouquet of white hydrangea with her gown and it was so pretty. Ivory roses or just white peonies would be really pretty too. With your wedding date, any of those flowers would be in season to!! I had an ivory dress and mine was a mix of pinks and ivories.

I was worried about this too! Most things I read said that it wouldn’t be a big deal, but if you’re very concerned do a mix of white shades for your flowers (although if you just want calla lilies it’s a bit different). I decided to just do it.

My bouquet was all white, although not even close to calla lilies.  I don’t think it looked too monochromatic, at least not in a bad way.

Here’s a picture I found of a bride with all white calla lilies in her bouquet. I think it looks lovely!

What are you wedding colors? That might help dictate whether you’re even able to use colored flowers in your bouquet. The color would be a nice background for the calla lilies to pop out. Two types of flowers would still keep it fairly simple and classy. I only ask the colors because, for instance, my colors are navy and copper. Guess what, no naturally navy or copper flowers, so I’m kind of stuck to the white flower family while accenting with copper and navy.
