21 To Die-For White on White Bouquets

Many, maybe even most brides choose colored bouquets. The color pops against the white dress and allow the bride to pull her theme color. Sometimes white bouquets get overlooked as boring or plain. These bouquets prove that white is anything but boring. The beautiful texture and variety is simple and elegant. If you can’t decide which color is right for your bouquet, maybe the answer is no color at all!

With it’s gilded age glamour inside and sweeping views of the ocean outside, wherever you are there’s a view that can’t be beat. Ceremonies can be held outside on the lawn overlooking the water, in the manicured garden on the side of the property, or inside in one of the beautiful rooms.

Located on a good piece of land in Portsmouth just a few miles away from the hubbub of Newport, there’s no chance of foot traffic disrupting pictures of a ceremony.

Whether you like it for the history, the architecture, or the location, you can’t go wrong with Glen Manor. Fit for royalty, the couple that get’s married here is sure to start their lives together on the right foot.

Never fear, there are plenty of beautiful ways you can decorate your ceremony space and still stay on budget. These tips show how some of our favorite ceremony tips can make a big impact for guest without making a big impact on the checkbook.

Focus on the aisle as the focal point.

Instead of costly flowers, us a cost effective bud like baby’s breath.

On the high fling note, try something up up and out of the way! These draping designs makes quite a statement while staying simple and elegant.

What about a monogram or sign? Simple, easy, and something you can use again!
