If someone asks you ‘White as…?’ then probably the first thing that comes to mind is snow! It is winter and who doesn’t like a white one? It is the same with weddings, the most common choice of colour for wedding flowers is white – this is because white has of course been the traditional colour for bridal dresses for ages. Dating back to Queen Victoria’s wedding in 1840, where she chose to wear white. This tradition has influenced the choice of white in other wedding elements, including flowers.

White wedding flowers are also versatile, they pair good with other colours and complement various wedding styles, from classic and traditional to modern and minimalistic. White is also often seen as a colour that represents new beginnings and a fresh start, which is fitting for a wedding day, showing the start of a new chapter in the love birds life. Overall, white is very suitable for a wedding, in every aspect, but today we are talking about flowers – as usual ;)

We have selected our favorite white wedding flowers for you, read on and maybe they will be your faves too!

Phalaenopsis Kobe

This variety of Phalaenopsis, the butterfly orchid, is known for its pure white petals. Orchids are flowers that add an elegant and subtle beauty to any bouquet or floral arrangement. With their hanging stem it’s such a cute and wiggly touch to make a bouquet playful. If you want to add a bit of spice to your bouquet, Phalaenopsis Red Lips might be the one for you! The petals are pure white but the heart has this beautiful pink/red-ish colour… So pretty.

Anemone Levante White

White Anemones are always a favorite to use in a wedding bouquet, although it’s a seasonal product, it is still so popular when it is in season. Especially the Levante White is stunning, it has a lighter heart with layered petals. A perfect choice when you want to combine white flowers with greens in a wedding bouquet. When you want to have more contrast in an Anemone, then you might like Anemone Mistral White too. It has a black center; it is almost like a panda!

“White wedding flowers are the symbol of love“

Lisianthus Falda White

This Lisianthus has pure white petals, with multiple flowers on one stem! It is a perfect product for in a bridal bouquet since the petals are bright white and they fit with every other flower. This flower is also available year-round, which makes it the perfect choice to make every bride happy.

Helleborus Niger White

A winter fave of all times, when you think of winter flowers, Helleborus comes to mind. This variety, Niger White, has a yellow heart with big white petals. This flower is a perfect fit to use in a bridal bouquet. The Helleborus is also known as the Winter Rose and it pairs so good with other flowers, Helleborus Winterbells are also very pretty. They can be combined with berries or greens, or other winter flowers. Imagine this Helleborus with the Anemone I mentioned before…

Ranunculus Su Pon White Igloo

This flower is not completely white but has green elements in it. Although, it matches incredibly good with white flowers, because in nature, green is everywhere, mostly in leaves, stems, and plants. White stands for the clean and pretty look of flowers. When you put green and white together, they look pretty and natural!

Syringe Stepman White

I must say, Syringe is one of my favorite white wedding flowers. The smell, the texture, the colour… Every detail about this flower is perfect. They are very seasonal but that makes them even more special, they also symbolize love – wedding vibes all over the place. Don’t miss out on this one since there is a limited stock!

Gyps Xlence

Gyps might be the cutest little flowers in the world, they are also cute to use in a bouquet to fill it up. The aesthetic of this flower matches good with the love-vibe during a wedding day, they are available in almost every colour you can think of so, perfect to make every couple smile :)

We now discussed only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to this colour of flowers, there are just so many! Winter offers a wide assortment of white flowers, each with its own texture, shape, and character. I’ve mentioned a few of my faves but there are so many other white flowers for weddings, think of a classic white Rose, or white Eyeliner Lilies.

The colour white is a symbol of purity and new beginnings, marking the start of the new love journey for the happy married couple. Your flower creations are the biggest witnesses to their “I do’s”, how special is that? The joy and love that comes along with being surrounded by flowers is worth so much that you can see yourself as a floral cupid, creating unforgettable moments.

Hopefully we inspired you with our favorite white wedding flowers, together we make the best team… We deliver, you create!
