Generations ago brides began wearing white on their wedding day as the symbol of purity. Over time the concept of a white wedding has spread to everything from white wedding invitations and bridal party attire to white flowers and table décor. Though popular at any time of year, white weddings are often held during the winter months to go along with the whiteness and purity of snow.
When most people think of white flowers, the first that come to mind are tulips and roses. Yet several varieties of flowers can be used at a white wedding, such as: paperwhite, gerbera daisy, hydrangea, dahlia, tuberose, gladiolus, china mum and genets.
Groom and groomsmen attire at a white wedding can vary from an all white suit or tuxedo to a traditional black suit or tuxedo and a white shirt and tie.
White wedding invitations may be formal but that does not mean they are without uniqueness. You can choose a uniquely shaped invitation, a raised font or varying fonts. Other ideas include tying a bow around the invitation or putting white rose pedals inside which will fall elegantly to the floor when your guests open them.
Whether you are having an entirely white wedding or not, white can set the tone for an elegant affair. As the traditional color of weddings, white exudes formality, tradition, class and charm.
Introduce your upcoming wedding with white invitations. What wedding do you have in mind -traditional, modern, or maybe retro? You will find all possible styles of white invitations on Wedding Paper Divas.
Customer reviews of our White Wedding Invitations
April 11, 2015Lovely card
"The design of the card is simple yet elegant. I loved that they were sent to us to review before they were printed because I liked the way some things were reworded. It was super helpful and I love them. They go perfect with the feel we are going for! Thank you"

"We were very pleased and impressed by the quality of the paper and printing as well as the foil stamping (rose gold). We were able to customize the printing by choosing different fonts as well as font sizes to suit our own taste. We also were able to choose a different color back than what was offered. Overall, the invitations were elegant and beautiful."

"Loved the stationery and purchased the shimmery white quality paper...absolutely stunning. After I proofed, I didn't realized they changed my "Adult Reception - Dinner, Drinks & Dancing " to "Adult Reception to follow"...this invitation was to attend our Reception, it's not a wedding ceremony with a reception to follow. Other than that, I would highly recommend. My error for not reviewing their final proof in an area, that wasn't to be modified, however it was changed and I'll have to inform guest upon their rsvp, it's a Reception...We had a destination wedding! Nice job nonetheless!"
