Calla Lilies Wedding Ideas

Meaning:  Magnificent Beauty

One of the easiest ways to customize your Wedding is to choose a certain flower that you love, like the Calla, then carry that idea all the way through your event. The key to pulling off a coordinated wedding reception: Evoke your theme throughout the affair. Whether that theme is as general as a season or a feeling, or as specific as this special flower, it should be the subtle thread that ties everything together. Your reception location, invitations, flowers, menu, cake, and favors should all cleverly reflect one common concept. Then, get as creative as you can!

Callas are well known as a romantic flower. If you love Callas, then go far beyond using Callas in your bouquets. Send Calla design save-the-date cards, followed with Calla design invitations. Place Calla seals on your envelopes. Use satin linens on your tables with a  tall clear glass vase of 3 - 5 Callas and lily grass. Have your florist tuck a mini Calla inside each napkin band and give favor boxes imprinted with a Calla design. Finally, put a vase of Callas in the ladies' room.

Colors: Calla are available in a variety of colors like: white/cream, cream, yellow, peach, purple, orange (mango), pink, purple, burgundy, mauve and green.

Flowers:  Although Calla Lilies are available year-round, winter to late spring is the peak season. Callas are available in white/cream, green, yellow, peach, purple, orange (mango), pink, purple, burgundy, mauve and white crystal blush (a lavender/purple blush). Calla Lilies are expensive, so if you plan to use Calla Lilies throughout your wedding expect to pay more for your flowers.  If you are on a tight budget, ask your florist to work in a few Callas with other less expensive flowers or use only 3-5 Callas per arrangement. 

Calla Lilies Invitations:

Your Wedding begins with the perfect Invitation. As romantic as a garden, love will show when guests receive your beautiful Calla lilies invitations. Highlight your wedding colors by using a matching ink color for your invitation wording and adding a liner to your inner envelope.

Special Touches for the Wedding Ceremony

Ceremony Flowers

For the entry table, use an arrangement place 3 standard callas and lily grass in a tall vase or use 3 Callas with 2-3 stems of  Dendrodium Orchids and curly willow.


Use a bow of tulle and ribbon on every other row of pews with a single mini calla and greenery.


At the altar, place two arrangements of standard callas, use 6-8 callas with lily grass or add Dendrodium Orchids, and curly willow.

Personal Flowers

Use Callas as a special flower that only you and your groom share and use less expensive flowers for the wedding party.

Bridal Bouquet: A clutch style bouquet of standard or mini callas with stems wrapped in ribbon, accented with pearl pins makes a lovely bouquet.

If you like yellow carry an elegant bouquet of yellow mini callas, 'Limona' roses, Ranunculus's and seeded eucalyptus tied with a trio of ribbons in olive, basil and yellow.

Groom's Boutonniere: Use one mini calla with a sprig of fern or tuck bits of rosemary into golden yellow kangaroo paws for a masculine boutonniere that is a perfect match if you are using yellow callas or any color of calla that will coordinate with yellow.


Special Touches for the Wedding Reception

At some point during the planning stages for your wedding the subject of linens will arise. When it does stop and think of all the possibilities available to you before you go with standard issue white polyester tablecloths. Remember the tops of the tables provide you with a very large surface area and covering them with beautiful tablecloths is the easiest & most cost effective way to change the feel of a room.

Place a tall vase of Dendrodium Orchids on your guest registry table and place two smaller vases with one calla in each vase at the base of the tall vase.

 Add a tall vase with 3-5 stand callas & lily grass or Callas, Dendrodium Orchids, and curly willow on each guest table. A bubble bowl with mini callas twisted around inside the bowl and one stem peeking out of the top also makes a lovely arrangement. Place the arrangement on a mirror with votive candles around the mirror.

Accented your cake with Calla Lilies, Roses and ribbon and set a vase of Callas on the table.

Attach a mini calla to the stem of each toasting glass.

Add mood lighting to your reception tables by placing candles (votive, tealights, pillars or tapers) on the tables along with your floral centerpiece or just use candles alone of different sizes. They look lovely on a mirror. Accent your candles with ribbon in your wedding colors.

Don't be afraid of color and texture. White on white is lovely, but even weddings are often decorated in rich and exciting colors. Consider the romance of midnight blue, the heat of calypso colors, and the passion of vibrant red. Delicate shades of pink, blue, green, lavender and yellow are also used, especially for garden or summer weddings.

If you prefer a traditional, understated look, by all means choose solid colors or traditional white. Add a touch of whimsy or an expression of personal style with accessories . . . elegant charger plates, intriguing napkin rings, or a single, stunning mini calla lily tucked into a napkin or the back of a chair cover are the kinds of dazzling details that help set your wedding apart.

For decorating magic and makeover miracles use white bridal lights, tulle, netting and gossamer for adding an extra romantic touch to any indoor or outdoor wedding venue. Use these materials to drape tables, ceilings, columns, doors and walls.  Don't forget tulle, and gossamer also make beautiful chair bows.

Calla Lily Favors

Ribbons & bows can turn even a simple favor box into something special. Use a white favor box, add a piece of ribbon around the center of each box and top with one large calla with a organza ribbon bow attached to the stem. 

You will find a number of items like: Napkins, Coasters, Place Cards, Matches & Favor Notepads, Sewing Kit Favors, Favor Boxes, Cake Boxes & etc. that can be Personalized with your names & wedding date plus either the  CAL - Calla Lilly Bouquet or CL - Calla Lilly Design in the Bridals Acessories Section  on our Carlson Craft site.
