Most all brides want to create a wedding that is “her own”. One way to do this is to choose a color palette that will be reflected throughout the wedding and reception. Another way to create a signature look for the wedding décor is to choose one particular flower as the centerpiece of the wedding theme. There are lots of flower options but in this blog post I will focus on Calla Lilies, Sunflowers and Daisies.

calla liliesCalla Lilies create an elegant look and are most often seen in formal or semi-formal weddings. They are available in several color choices and sizes and are the most expensive of the three flowers featured here.

One way to save money on calla lilies used in centerpieces an décor is to arrange them yourself. It is relatively simple to get an elegant look from just putting calla lilies in a vase. They don’t require a lot of expertise to arrange. And you can easily create a bridal bouquet, especially if you choose the presentation/arm bouquet style. Our Pinterest board has lots of ideas and inspiration:  Calla Lily Wedding Theme

SunflowersSunflowers work wonderfully for an outdoor or informal wedding. They look particularly lovely when paired with a bright blue or purple accent flower, as shown in the photo collage below.

They can easily be added to Mason jars and other simple vases to create a lot of wow-factor! Or they can be meticulously arranged in to a topiary or floral pompadour. There are a lot of photos of sunflowers in our Country Chic/Rustic Pinterest board:

daisiesDaisies are the least expensive of the three choices and like sunflowers, work especially well for outdoor and informal weddings. However, they can be a good choice for more formal weddings, as well. It all depends on how they are arranged, other flowers they are paired with, etc.

Sunflowers work especially well with the colors of yellow and/or green to create a fresh, summery look. Like sunflowers, they also work well as a topiary or floral pompadour.
