While we're never ones to shy away from a bright, bold color palette of dazzling blues or radiant orchid, but there's something so classically bridal about white...all white. And we especially love this look for a modern winter wedding. Crisp white linens, white flickering tea lights, and various blooms without a single hue in's fresh, sophisticated, and oh-so-chic. Forget everything you know about the so-called "rules" your mother taught you: it's actually OK to wear white after Labor Day, and your 'maids will shine in a white gown right next to you. (We'd like to thank Pippa for reminding us how much we love this trend!) Get more white wedding inspiration below.

A mix of white and ivory gives this tablescape depth and warmth.

Of course, an all white menu is probably not the best choice, but a white signature cocktail and cake duo is the perfect ways to start and end the night.

Pretty prints and eclectic fonts are always a favorite, but a classic invitation suite is one of our favorite ways to stay "traditional."

White orchids, roses, peonies, and tulips...can you think of a more luxurious combination?
