Calla lily wedding bouquets

Calla lily wedding bouquets have a simple yet elegant look that is just classic bridal style. Read on for help in designing your calla lily bridal bouquet.

Also known as Zantedeschia, calla lily flowers are one of the most popular choices for brides who are looking to accessorize a contemporary style of wedding gown such as an elegant column dress.

A tied sheaf bouquet of calla lilies with tightly bound stems in a contemporary color is striking. If you choose well, you can co-ordinate the bridesmaids dresses. See my advice page on wedding color combinations.

Calla lily bouquets

You can combine your calla lily bouquet with other flowers in a complementary shade or simply add greenery.

The dark green glossy leaves of aspidistra or aralias are particularly suitable as are the long flowing strands found in steel grass. Both of these choices will add form and definition to your bouquet.

Calla lilies wedding flowers can be ordered in a wide range of colors. One of my favorites is burnt orange. This shade is perfect for fall wedding flowers.

Your florist can also use wiring to keep the calla stems in a curled or twisted shape. He or she can create a wired bouquet that also incorporates another flower such as roses or orchids in the same shade of color.

You can then carry over this theme for your centerpieces. A simple pillar candle with wired calla lilies and aspidistra leaves curling around the base is striking.
