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
January 23, 2015Pretty Invitation!
"I was looking for a very modern, classy invitation. I stumbled upon this suite and it worked out great! The foil is pretty, the card stock is perfect. I wanted to make the back plain black and they were able to do it. Very accommodating and checks everything before it is printed."
January 23, 2015Perfect with a few tweaks for etiquette
"I picked this design because it was matched the floral for our wedding and the script was nice but not too small or difficult to read. I ordered samples of each different paper option during a sale event--very helpful in decision making. The only problem with the invitation was the wording, which was easily fixed by the WPD designer. 2 days later we received the proof and it was perfect. Excited to send them out to our family and friends!"

"Just sent these out this week and have gotten many compliments already. One friend even said she cried a little when she opened it up. The paper isn't super thick, but it prints beautifully and the shimmer is very subtle and nice. We had some custom colors and everything came out just how we wanted. I loved that we had room for our middle names on this card. This is my 2nd or third order from wpd and I was extremely pleased."
January 18, 2015Beautiful!
"We used this design for our wedding invitations, and they turned out absolutely beautiful! We went with just the default basic matte paper and it fits this rustic style perfectly. It's also ery durable and a good quality paper. We love them!"
January 16, 2015Everything I asked for
"I changed the color and the saying after already submitting it. The review team changed the card to exactly what I wanted in one day and then mailed it out two days later. Excellent people every time I called. Really like wedding paper divas."
