Choosing Flowers for Your Wedding
Whether for a casual shindig or a formal soiree, one of these four bouquets is right.
What it is: An all-white, hand-tied bouquet, traditionally filled with calla lilies, stephanotis, and Vendela roses (shown). The stark palette is meant to be an elegant accessory to the gown, not to compete with it. Often, the bouquet is secured with a satin ribbon accented with mother-of-pearl buttons.
What to know: This arrangement might be the priciest of the bunch (the blooms tend to be expensive). White buds bruise easily; be sure to keep them in a cool, shady spot where they won't wilt.
