So what do you think are best flowers for a bridal bouquet? One of the most beautiful flowers that can form a bridal bouquet is a sort of lilies called the calla lilies. You probably know them but you didn’t know that this was their name. Their elegant shape and delicate long petals look like a thin, beautiful lady, if you come to think of it.

Be careful just on one thing. In the German culture, the use of calla lilies is made only in funerals. Strange, yes, but this is their tradition. They never ever use calla lilies in weddings under no circumstance. This aspect is not mentioned in any other culture, and therefore you are free to use calla lilies in any way you wish. But keep in mind that is you will get married in Germany, for example, you will be forbidden to use calla lilies in your bridal bouquet or as decorations.

For a calla lilies bridal bouquet you can use something else besides other flowers or leaves. For example, you can use ribbons and tulle. It will “dress” the bouquet in a festive manner, making it perfect to be the bouquet of the bride, not just a simple bouquet. Also, you can choose the color of the calla lilies in contrast with the color of your wedding gown, because it will look astonishing. But for the traditional kind of brides, you can always go for the white type of calla lilies.
