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
November 20, 2013Vintage Romance Glam!
"These invitations are gorgeous! I was looking for an elegant wedding invitation which embodied the Vintage Romance theme that I was shooting for. I went to a few local shops and was told that the style I was looking for would cost me between $9-$12 an invite... which was just not going to happen. After a lot of frustration I found Wedding Paper Divas site and loved every sample that I ordered from them (at reasonable prices to boot!). When it came down to ordering the invite this one fit the bill beautifully. It was simple yet had a unique design and looks amazing on the black pocket folds that I ordered."
November 8, 2013It's Perfect
"These invitations are exactly how we imagined they would be. I had been looking for quite some time and nothing had really jumped out at us, and that is what we wanted. We did the pearl shimmer finish and rounded corners and it really added something extra. My fiance's favorite part, and one of mine as well, was the initials on the back. Something different, which is exactly what we were going for. Can't wait to send these out!"

"We've ordered samples of several invitations from several different sites and these were by far the best. The design is beautiful and really stands out on the shimmer paper. The fonts were exactly what we were looking for for our art deco wedding. Not only were these the best invitations we received samples of but also the least expensive. We will definitely be ordering these and the matching stationary for our wedding"
October 3, 2013Nice Card
"I really like the looks of this card and the paper was great. The back is design is by far the best I have seen and I like mostly for that. Though, the respondence card was not printed very well. Where it says kindly, you can hardly see the 'k' because of how it is written to go off the card."

"This was my favorite part of wedding planning and was the most fun! Personalizing was so easy and went so smoothly. I put our monogram on the back (which i love) and everyone says that the colors are just so great!!!"
