Lilies Wedding Ideas
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.
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
to work in a few Callas with other less expensive
flowers or use only 3-5 Callas per arrangement.
Your Wedding begins with
the perfect Invitation. As romantic as a garden, love will show when guests receive

Availability: Winter to late spring is the peak
season. Standard Callas are primarily
available October through early May. Mini callas are
usually available most of the year.
Standard Callas vs. Mini Callas:
Standard callas are 24 inches long with blooms 3-5 inches tall. In comparison with standard callas,
mini callas are small. Though size is variable, the average length is 10-12 inches with blooms 2-3 inches tall.
callas come in white/cream, yellow (beautiful natural yellow), green
goddess (gorgeous natural green color), and a new variety called
green princess (white with green edging). Mini Callas are
available in white/cream, yellow, peach, purple, orange
(mango), pink, purple, burgundy mauve and white crystal blush (has a
lavender/purple blush). The colors are affected
by weather conditions during the the growing phase so the colors are
variable. For example at times the white can have some pink hints or
be a very pale yellow. Mauve ranges from almost pink to just about
purple. The orange is best described as the color of a nectarine. It
can be anywhere from mango orange to just about red, usually a combo
of fall tones.
