One variety of white flowers that you might consider using in your wedding bouquet and for attendants' corsages is the ever-popular poppy. Poppies make wonderful cut flowers and are long lasting in a bouquet. They boast crinkly delicate petals, and they are perfect size for a corsage or as part of a bridal bouquet. There are many different varieties to choose from, and their cheerful light-green centers are surrounded by small delicate yellow stamen. These showy flowers are surrounded by serrated fern-like leaves or a beautiful basal rosette.

Consider choosing a smaller colorful flower to use along with white poppies in a bridal bouquet or in a corsage. Blue, pink, or lavender forget-me-nots are a fantastic choice. Their colors are unlike any other flowers found in nature, and they compliment white poppies very nicely. Blue forget-me-nots are a beautiful sky-blue color topped with a perfect yellow dot in the center of each bloom. These are the most popular choice because of their uniquely intense blue color. They are also the most recognizable hue when thinking of the forget-me-not.

Another white flower to consider for your wedding bouquet and corsages is the salpiglossis. Despite its name, it's a very beautiful flower that boasts velvety funnel-shaped blooms. Their exotic and breathtaking beauty is sure to make the most stunning wedding bouquet and corsages.

You might want to consider complimenting the white color of salpiglossis with smaller flowers such as colored baby's breath or tiny pastel colored roses. Small fragrant roses would make a stunning bouquet, and a white salpiglossis flanked by two small pastel colored roses would make a very striking corsage.

White bellflowers make beautiful wedding bouquets and corsages. They are synonymous with summer, and they would be perfect for a summer wedding. There are several species to choose from, some with clusters of flowers and others bearing one single but striking bloom.

Bellflowers would be best complimented with sprigs of pastel colored baby's breath or small bunches of blue brunnera, which is very similar to blue forget-me-nots. This exquisite flower boasts unique heart-shaped foliage which would be perfect when used in a wedding bouquet or for wedding corsages.

A well-know white flower to consider for a wedding bouquet or corsage is the ever-popular chrysanthemum. There are many varieties of chrysanthemum, and all make wonderful wedding bouquets and corsages. Some types of chrysanthemums to consider are painted daisies, Shasta daisies, and the beloved fall mum. These are perfect for a fall wedding celebration.

White chrysanthemums go well with small colored asters, colorful baby's breath, or beautifully vibrant shades of yarrow infused with small fern branches.
