Calla lilies are a popular wedding flower for fall and winter weddings, and for good reason. These flowers come in a variety of colors (including deep, almost-black burgundy, orange, lavender, and – our favorite – cream with a purple center), and create a chic and elegant look. From bouquets to centerpieces to boutonnieres, calla lilies can be used in a variety of arrangements throughout your wedding day. Check out these 20 pretty designs featuring calla lilies in our gallery here.

The beauty of a bouquet doesn’t just stop at the top; it can be found in the bottom too — the handle! Whether you want to incorporate a token of good luck by adding an heirloom coin, borrow a piece of lace from dear old mom’s veil and call it your “something old,” make it monochromatic with scripted monogrammed initials, let it shine with glittering gold sequins, rope it up with hemp twine, or get colorful with ribbons of differing lengths, our Flowers Editor has gathered 11 creative ways to add that fabulous finishing touch.
