An All White Colour Palette

A dreamy wedding reception in white symbolises innocence and purity and can be very elegant and chic if you decorate the venue with beautiful details such as glowing porcelain vases filled with voluptuous white blooms, beautiful paper lanterns or even fluffy pom-poms made from tulle.

White is a happy and serene colour and it can therefore contribute to a pleasant and tranquil atmosphere for your wedding reception. If you let your imagination go wild, the design can be very inventive rather than just traditional and clichéd.

You can start with designing your centre-piece and it can be anything from beautiful flowers in white vases or ceramic love birds to simple and inexpensive DIY decorations such as white paper garlands or fairy lights. White can be very inspirational and you can make it super-glamorous with details like lace, pearls and feathers, or just very romantic and beautiful with flamboyant flower arrangements and satin bows.


You can also apply the wedding theme on food and serve only white delicacies. From savoury snacks to white wedding cake with a gorgeous white cake topper, you can have an entire white menu which includes ingredients like scallops, cauliflower, horseradish, celery and even pasta.

White macarons can be a very stylish and yet delicious favour for your guests, while buttercream and powdered sugar will make a great topping for cakes and deserts. You can also serve white cocktails made from clear fruit brandies, white rum and white crème de cacao.

White can be very modern and minimalistic, but it can also look vintage if you include quirky details such as bird cages, old-fashioned candle holders and all white chairs. When it comes to wedding invitations, white is always the most appropriate choice, but from antique to contemporary, there are many styles to choose from.

Choosing a design for your favour boxes can be fun too. You can use satin ribbons, lace or tulle to make them very romantic, or simply put your cute white favours in see-through bags.

Your bridesmaid can wear white too! Ever since Pippa Middleton made her grand entrance to the Royal Wedding, white bridesmaid dresses have become on-trend. Create a classic look for your wedding with an all-white bridal party. To break up the all-white colour palette, choose mismatched gowns for your bridesmaids in soft laces, floral embroidery and silver beading. Have the groomsmen and groom wear white shirts to tie in the with the all-white theme!


Lastly, to complete your wedding outfit, you can make a selection of white flowers for your bouquet. A cluster of white peonies, dahlias  tulips, orchids, and delphiniums will look great and you can also decorate it with snowberry branches. Wrap it with a pretty satin or lace ribbon and you are ready to go!
