A splash of bright, bold colour like in my last board is a great look for a contemporary wedding but there’s also something cool about going for no colour whatsoever. All white is pure and simple and definitely a brave choice but if done well it can look really bloomin’ beautiful…

Here’s a few of my ideas to help you achieve an All White wedding:Stationery: It’s rather hard to have a fully white invite for your All White day as the details will probably be too small to be blind embossed using letterpress printing. But the design and your names won’t be, so something like this is a striking way to keep your stationery in line with your ideas for your day.
Bride: I’m pretty sure you’ll have no trouble finding a white dress! Which one may take more time to decide on but an All White look would work with any. However, dresses that create simple silhouettes, rather than heavily embellished gowns, would be especially stunning if you wanted a sleek event.
Bridesmaids: Who says just the bride has to wear white? Bridesmaids can too! For a fresh summery wedding pick short dresses for your maids so you’ll still stand out if you’ve opted for the floor-length number. You’ll find loads of options on the high street coming up to summer!
Shoes: White. No other colour needed. I personally like the look of patent leather heels with a big patent bow! Make your own with Shoes of Prey.
Flowers: I love the image in the inspiration board. Any white flowers would work with an All White wedding but picking just one type and opting for a simple sculptural shape like the round bunch of roses is a great way to give your flowers that contemporary edge.
Groom/groomsmen: Whatever you pick for your flowers will work for the men’s boutonnieres. If you want to go all out their suits could be white too!
Decoration: The tablecentre in the image is a great example of how using several whites makes beautiful not boring. Using the white barked birch tree as a container and filling with white flowers looks amazing but any white vase would work. Crisp white tablecloths, white votive holders and white crockery completes this look.
Cake: For a stylish event such as this one you could pass on the cake and cupcakes and go for the newer trend of macaroons. I love the idea of a great big, completely white macaroon tower!
Favours: If you’re going for macaroons for your cake then macaroons could easily double up as the favours in a see-through box topped with a cute tag attached with twine. A cheaper option is those powdery bonbons which are inexpensive and easy but would still look pretty in a lil bag tied with a big bow.
Other ideas: If you really want to complete the All White wedding look then you could even ask your guests to wear white! It would look awesome on the photos!
