Wedding Flowers: Will All-White Wedding Flowers Be Too Boring?

Q:

I'm kind of a traditionalist and want to focus on white wedding flowers for both my wedding bouquet and the wedding centerpieces. My mom keeps warning me the wedding flowers will look boring. Is she right? How can I still have all-white wedding flowers and make it interesting?

A:

It's true, all-white flowers have long been a popular choice for weddings. But they don't have to be blah. You can achieve an updated look by adding variations of off-white blooms for a deeper, richer effect. Play with texture instead of color to keep the look varied. And don't be afraid of a little color! Predominantly white bouquets and arrangements can look stunning with a touch of one color mixed in, such as blue violets or yellow tulips.
