Deciding on the color palette of your wedding design is ultimately a question of personal style. With endless color combinations and an abundance of design inspiration at your fingertips, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. While we’re all for highly detailed, nuanced design, we’re also huge fans of simplicity, which is why we can make a pretty strong case for the most classic color available for your wedding day: white.
“Color palettes definitely go in and out of style, and an all-white palette ensures that your wedding colors will never feel dated or trend-driven,” says Madison Hartley of Hart Floral. “Something subtle and unexpected can make a big impact.”

From natural to glamorous, bohemian, or even whimsical, white wedding flowers can transform any wedding style from basic to transcendent. Opt for something over-the-top and grandiose, or keep it simple. “Your wedding flowers should be flowers that both look and feel as though they belong,” says Hartley. “The best way to ensure that is to use seasonal flowers local to the region you are marrying in.”
Fresh dogwood branches or white cherry blossoms are perfect for large-scale installations while playful blooms like fritillaria and clinch offer a dose of unexpected elegance.
