White is often used as a wedding accent color, but we're here to show you just how stunning it looks when used as the leading hue in your palette. No matter your style, whether it's bohemian, classic, glamorous, romantic, modern, or something in between, white wedding decor can help you create a space that's fresh, fashionable, and uplifting on the big day. White is also a go-to color for celebrity weddings — just take a cue from Kim & Kanye, Solange, Serena Williams, and the Royal Family, if we're dropping names. Have we convinced you yet?  

Check out some of our favorite white wedding decor ideas below. 

Callista & Company

Invitations

Set the tone for your wedding with monochromatic white stationery. This all-white invitation suite is anything but boring — look closely and you'll see a subtle marbled pattern that gives the collection a trendy twist. Bonus: your guests will feel like a million bucks upon seeing their names in gorgeous calligraphy. 

Summer Robbins Flowers

Bouquet

We love an all-white wedding bouquet! Greenery and pale flowers add just a hint of color to an assortment of white blooms, like this ethereal garden-style bouquet. Some of the prettiest white flowers are peonies, garden roses, anemones, and cymbidium orchids.

Wrap 

If you're getting married during the winter months, a cozy, off-white wrap is a luxurious accessory to keep you warm during an outdoor ceremony or portrait session. You can find beautiful faux fur options that are stylish and cruelty-free.

Bridesmaid Dresses

If you think a white dress is only for the bride, think again! Outfit your 'maids in white gowns for a bridal party that's très chic. Worried about not standing out as the bride a sea of white? Skip the mix-and-match trend and have your bridesmaids wear matching dresses instead, so that yours is clearly different. You'll also want to choose a bridesmaid dress style that isn't too similar to your wedding gown. 

KYO Collection

Tuxedo

For ultra-formal dress codes, you can't go wrong with a white tuxedo jacket. Compared to a traditional black or dark blue tux, it adds a level of glamour and elegance. Since this look is definitely an attention-grabber, you'll want to make sure the jacket is perfectly tailored — anything even slightly oversized will be noticeable.

Ceremony Altar

Sheer white fabric and a cluster of white flowers is all it takes to dress up a wooden ceremony arbor. We love how this particular arbor is romantic but not overdone, creating the perfect accent for the venue's natural beauty. 

Juliet Le Fleur

Macramé Backdrop

If you love bohemian style, this giant macramé hoop is calling your name. It's a great example of how white wedding decor works for nearly any style. Pair your macramé hoop with other free-spirited elements, like greenery wreaths and a scenic outdoor venue, for an artsy boho feel.

Floral Arches

Hello, statement-maker! A tunnel of floral arches is not for the minimalist couple (and you'll need plenty of wiggle room in your flower budget), but we can't deny that it's breathtaking. This exquisite idea will instantly bring a fairytale effect to your wedding day.  

Smashing Weddings

Reception Tent

With the addition of rental furniture and trendy decorative accents, a simple white canvas tent can be used to create a stylish wedding lounge space. This is a great idea if you're getting married outdoors during the summer or if there aren't many shaded areas at your venue. 

The White Dove Barn

Venue

Take your white wedding decor theme to the next level by choosing a venue that's entirely white from floor to ceiling. By adding all-white accents, you can create a dreamy space that feels bright and airy — even better if there is plenty of natural light! 

Chancey Charm

Candles

Boost the romantic vibes of your wedding by adding clusters of candles throughout your venue. White pillar candles and votives become a focal piece when you display them in a vintage glass lantern. 

Manayunk Brewery

Escort Cards

When it comes to your wedding decor, even the smallest details can make a difference! Escort cards are one of the first things your guest will look for when they arrive to your reception, so why not showcase them in a unique way? A metal tree is an unexpectedly stylish way to display basic white escort cards.

The Tent Merchant

Chair Covers

Crisp white chair covers can be personalized with your wedding monogram for dose of preppy chic style. Even if it's not doable to do this for every chair at your wedding reception, it's a swoon-worthy idea for your head table or sweetheart table

Floral and Bloom Designs

Reception Tablescape

A color palette of creams, whites, and ivories will create a reception tablescape that's utterly timeless. Incorporate textured linens and matching centerpieces to complete the look.

Napkins

Depending on your reception venue, basic linens, such as white cloth napkins, might be included in your rental fee (score!). Take your place settings to the next level by skipping the traditional triangle napkin fold for something more trendy, like this setup featuring a translucent charger plate and tropical-inspired menu card

Festive Fare

Centerpieces

Just like all-white bouquets, there's something about all-white centerpieces that makes us swoon. These elegant arrangements include roses and amaryllis, which are stunning complements to the rest of the table's gold and white wedding decor.

Wedding Cake

White buttercream cakes are always a crowd pleaser, but if you're looking for a wedding cake that's a true work of art, think about including intricate details like sugar flowers. Blush ranunculus and white clematis vines are a sweet addition to this fondant cake.
