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
July 28, 2014Simple and elegant!
"I chose to use the white background with gold and black print, and it looked great. It's not too busy, like some other invitations can be, and this is a simple way of stating a lot. I used the free (but high quality) card stock - which looked fantastic. But, I did not use the Pearl White Shimmer to get the luminescent look, though I would recommend it if you can splurge on that if you want the metallic look. (the cardstock does not give the metallic look). I love my invitations and the service on the proofs was very fast and helpful. Highly recommend!"

"We are having an October wedding in Salem, Ma. Our colors are black, gold, and ivory so we were looking for something to match of course. I wanted the main color to be black with gold writing and a lot of other sites didn't have this. The foil stamps really gave these invitations something extra which we loved. The artist was wonderful to work with, we went back and forth via email a couple times and they really make sure you get exactly what you want. I would definitely order from wedding paper divas again!"

"Paper and print quality were perfectly acceptable, but not remarkably good. Design of course is beautiful, absolutely lovely, not to mention a multi-generational people-pleaser! My grandmother said it was the most beautiful wedding invitation she'd ever seen, and I'm inclined to agree. Customer service was extremely competent, prompt, and obliging, I can't say that enough. We had several changes made, and they were all completed within hours of our submitting the request."

"This was the only invitation we could both agree on! He loved the modern layout, I loved the simple elegance. Both our names are long and didn't fit originally, but Dwayne did amazing job adjusting the design until we got it just right! He seriously treated it like he was designing his own invites and made the whole thing work seamlessly."

"These couldn't have turned out any more perfect! I was amazed how fast they were delivered, almost 2 whole weeks before the expected arrival date. I love that the designers take the time to edit your text and layout to make sure it looks flawless. I can't thank you enough and would more than recommend this style! I will definitely be ordering thank you cards from you!"
