White Daisy Wedding Inspiration and Ideas
In the 21st century, “themed” weddings are more popular than ever before. White daisies are a versatile theme. They can be cute, elegant, and “hip” all at the same time. Regarding daisy wedding inspiration, you can draw from Caroline Herrera’s 2017 wedding dress collection, which features several dresses festooned with daisies. The daisy’s simple yellow and white two-toned look makes it perfect for sunny spring or summer weddings. It also works well for a rustic or country fall wedding.
There are hundreds of ideas for a white daisy wedding, including matching the bridesmaids’ dresses and shoes to the yellow color in the daisy’s center. Or, your bridesmaids can wear white, royal blue, or navy blue dresses and yellow shoes. Royal blue and navy blue pair particularly well with yellow, so that is why we mention it. However, other accent colors would work as well, such as dark pink or purple. Your bridesmaids will look great carrying bouquets of daisies (shasta daisy, chamomile daisy, etc.) and baby’s breath flowers. It’s also a fun idea to match the groomsmens’ bow ties and cummerbunds to the yellow. Or, for a more casual wedding, just the groomsmens’ ties could be yellow. And or course a complementary daisy boutonnière would look great on your groomsmen.
There are also all kinds of ways you can dress up your flower girl. For example, she could wear a white daisy-themed dress that makes her a “mini-me” of the bride herself. Or, she could wear a yellow dress with daisy accents as well. In keeping with the theme, the ring bearer could simply wear a daisy as a boutonnière or you could have him also wearing a yellow tie or bowtie/cummerbund combination. The ring bearer’s pillow could be accented with daisies.
Even before the wedding takes place, the groom can present the bride-to-be with a daisy style engagement ring. For the wedding day, the bride can complement her dress with some daisy-shaped earrings or daisy accent necklace. She could even use blue stones, such as sapphires or blue opals. Blue is a perfect color to complement white daisies as it looks great with yellow. You can choose any color of blue, however, sky blue, cornflower blue, royal blue, and navy blue are all great choices. If her bridesmaids are wearing blue, the bride’s bouquet can also feature some blue flowers mixed in with the daisies.
The Rustic Look
With a white daisy themed wedding, you can use rustic wedding decorations for both the ceremony and the reception, as daisies work well for more casual weddings. Daisies grow wild almost anywhere, so even the sides of the driveway can be part of the overall milieu. Being white, daisies also mesh very well with tulle, burlap, twine, or wood. You can also use other garlands, such as baby’s breath or ferns of any type and these work well for a rustic theme. Daisy-themed veils are “in” these days, but if you’re going rustic, you might just wear wild daisies in your hair. The bridesmaids could also wear daisies in their hair. Or you can choose more natural, flowy hairstyles and just have daisies as part of your bouquets. Wooden tie clasps or lapel pins decorated with daisies for all the groomsmen would also look great.
The Country Look
Daisies also work great for country weddings. Pair them with denim, wood, cowboy boots, cowboy hats, gingham, and other typical country elements. Add horseshoes and horse elements for a more western version of this theme. Country daisy weddings, along with rustic daisy weddings can take place at a farm or barn. They can also take place outdoors. With country weddings, hay bales are often added to the decor as well. A BBQ feast is also a great choice for a country daisy themed wedding.
The Cottage Look
Daisies are also a great choice for a cottage wedding. In this case, you can go a bit more upscale and incorporate fabric patterns, such as damasks and other florals. A wedding at a cottage also will look wonderful if you incorporate a blue accent color to pair with the white and yellow from the daisy. Another possible color accent choice would be a shade of dark pink or possibly purple. With a wedding at a cottage, you can also incorporate vintage or retro decor items and you can go for a shabby chic, bohemian style as well. For cottage weddings, you can also incorporate wicker, white wire baskets, and yellow ceramic vases. Another great idea is to incorporate lemons and lemon slices into your decor!
Get Your Craft On
Daisies are a great choice for DIY wedding decor projects because you can get great looking silk, fabric or paper daisies in craft stores. It’s also easy to make daisies from paper. You could make cute, canvas or burlap clutch purses for the bridesmaids and the mothers of the groom and bride. Using a modern, programmable sewing machine, you could stitch each woman’s name into her purse and add daisies to the decoration.
If you really like DIY projects, you could save money by making your own centerpieces. Use your imagination. Baby’s breath and daisy-filled canisters on each table are quick, easy, and eye-catching. So are faux, unbreakable flower pots filled with daisies and enhanced with white LED lights. Place cards made from construction paper or oak tag and decorated with daisies are a fun alternative to traditional formal decorations. Oak tag, particularly, is exceptional for this because it lies flat, doesn’t curl, and cuts very easily in straight lines. Use the oak tag for the backing and colored construction paper or faux white daisies for the decorations. To pair formality and whimsy together, write the name in calligraphy on the card.

Either will be visually striking and will leave a lasting favorable impression on your guests.
Stickers, Showers, and Stuff
Even before the rehearsal dinner, bachelorette party, and other “week before” preparations, there will be festivities. You may have one or more bridal showers, for example. For each of these events, you’re going to need invitations, thank you cards, and even address labels for the envelopes. Isn’t it charming that in the 21st century, with all of the focus on social media and email, paper invitations, sent through the mail, are still the preferred method for invitations?
You have two ways to go regarding all the daisy wedding invites for all the events leading up to your big day. You could have one overriding theme, for example, where every item is exactly the same. Or, you could “change it up” and have a different look to each invite while still keeping the daisy theme. Whichever way you choose to go, be sure to take your time with your daisy wedding invitations and other cards and labels. You don’t want the lasting impression you make to be “meh,” or worse, “yuck!”
Are these the only ideas for a white daisy wedding? No, there are countless others. You just have to use your imagination. Do different things. If your daisy wedding invitations are whimsical, then make your site decorations formal. If the daisy wedding invites are formal, be fun at the wedding. Make up your own “daisy dance.” Drop daisy petals instead of paper confetti. Instead of rice, have the guests pick up the daisy petals to toss at you as you run to the limo. Above all, have fun with your theme. It is, after all, your day!
