Wedding flowers: Calla Lilies

Another type of flower used during weddings is the calla lily. It has a simple, trumpet like shape that's very elegant and soothing to the eyes. It is said that calla lilies symbolize beauty, that is maybe why a lot of brides opt for these for their wedding bouquets.

Calla lilies grow mostly during the spring-summer season. It doesn't wilt that easily, so even after long hours, your bouquet still looks fresh.

They come in a variety of colors like yellow, orange and pink, but for most weddings, white is usually used. Probably because the color also symbolizes purity of the bride. You can also mix calla lilies with other blooms, but about two dozens of these tied together are, in my opinion, the most classic look of all.

Here are some wedding bouquets I've found over the Net using calla lilies, all for your inspiration:
