White Wedding Flowers for Bouquets

19 Jun

Brides, if you are on a budget, why not cut fresh wedding flowers from your landscape for bouquets and centerpieces. Wedding flowers and bouquets can add serious dollars to your wedding budget, why not plan, plant and cut yourself.

White wedding flowers are very classic colors widely used by brides. Save some money and cut fresh flowers for your rehearsal dinner centerpieces.

In the late spring and early summer, many annuals, perennials, shrubs and trees are bursting with white flowers  for your wedding centerpieces.

Oakleaf hydrangea flowers are one of the largest offered in Greensboro, or zone 7. One of these flowers could yield several small vases of white flowers.

Oakleaf hydrangea flowers are very durable and can be cut a couple of days before a wedding or rehearsal dinner.

Another use for oakleaf hydrangea flowers is to float in water.

If you are giving earrings to your bridesmaids as gifts, insert crystal studs in the center to surprise your girlfriends at the rehearsal dinner. These are Sabika crystal earrings and a small amount of glitter was added for more sparkle.

Additional white wedding flower options are Natchez crape myrtle blooms.

Stokes Aster is a perennial having white flowers in late June. These are a great choice for modern weddings.

White Stokes Aster is accompanied by foliage cuttings of Amsonia and Sweet Potato Vine. Combining fine and coarse texture foliage adds more interest.

If you are on a very strict budget wanting to save money, try roadside wildflowers.

These fine textured wildflowers remind me of babys breath and minature daisies.

Add an Oriental Lily to the vase for some added vavoom.
