How To Build Your Reception Around A Calla Lily Theme
Roses may be the first flower in people’s mind upon the mention of the word wedding. But if you want to do away with the cliché of using roses on your big day, why not opt for something that’s just as beautiful and sophisticated? The calla lily with its graceful lines, vivid colors, and grandiose blooms, has become a very popular choice among brides, wedding designers and wedding planners. It doesn’t matter whether you’re having a traditional or modern wedding, a calla lily theme can definitely turn it into a gorgeous event.
Calla lilies are perennial rhizomes that come in a wide array of colors, including white, off white, ivory, cream, champagne, green, pink, purple, lavender, red, burgundy, peach, coral, apricot, mango, orange, rust, yellow, gold, deep purple, and cameo (white with pink edges). The assortment in colors makes this flower bloom versatile. It can fit whatever season you’re tying the knot. Peach or orange is nice for a summer wedding while deep purple is perfect for an autumn affair. Before you shop for calla lily-themed wedding items, be sure to plan the color scheme first to be able to achieve a unified look for your reception.
