There's just something so special about a white wedding color palette. The classic hue fits with every style of event, so whether you're hosting a traditional or contemporary celebration, white décor always manages to look fresh. Plus, there's a good chance your florist will be able to deliver on an all-white centerpiece made from just about any wedding flower that catches your eye, since many popular big-day blooms (and even those that aren't so well-known!) are available in white. Choosing gorgeous reception decorations just got a whole lot easier.

Just as there are numerous flowers available in this classic color, there are many ways to arrange monochromatic blooms so that they look unique. Think garlands, bouquets, tall centerpieces, or short arrangements—the sky (or the reception ceiling) is the limit, which is exactly why the white wedding centerpiece will never go out of style.

Looking for a little inspiration to get you started? Turn to these white wedding centerpieces from real celebrations for guidance. One piece of advice before you start scrolling: The following photos prove that a perfect all-white wedding centerpiece involves so much more than the blooms. Be on the lookout for pretty ceramic urns, antique compotes, and marble bowls—all of which influence your tablescape's style.
