Where is such a wide array of white that’s available all year round that certainly you can count on white in any season.
The trick is to open your mind a little bit and to consider also ivory shades and to consider white in all its various hues.
Sometimes I have a bride who will come to me and have a swatch.
She’ll have a swatch of either her dress or a bridesmaid dress, particularly when it comes to white and wanting to match white flower with a white piece of fabric or a white ribbon.
It’s never a good idea.
The best idea is to try and have white flowers with a dress that’s not white.
If you have a wedding dress that’s ivory and you have white, white flowers, the flowers are going to look more bright white than your dress and vice versa.
If you have a very bright white dress, you can have flowers that actually range in flowers from white to ivory.
If you’re interested in matching exactly, you’re going to be disappointed.
To be open to the possibility that flowers come in their natural state ina whole broad range of white colors and to have a bouquet that is going to be a range of those whites, a range of ivories.
It also gives it a little more texture.
Another thing to consider with white flowers, particularly regarding bouquets, is that it’s an excellent idea to add some pop off some color, again, to give it more texture, to make the bouquet a little more vibrant, and to break up space a little bit.
Certainly, with centerpieces, this is also helpful.
Consider for an all-white, monochromatic look adding a little bit of purple, a little bit of gray, maybe a little bit of brown, something to give it just a little bit of pop of something.
I think you’ll be pleased, even more, pleased than say with an entirely monochromatic spectrum for the white.
