Calla Lilies: Fun Facts & Ideas For your Wedding

With their elegant, trumpet-shaped beauty and long-lasting nature, calla lilies are an excellent wedding flower! Originating in South Africa and the islands of Madagascar, 28 different species of calla lilies can be found around the world. Even though they grow best in tropical climates, calla lily plants can survive almost anywhere that has a little moisture in the air. There are even a few varieties that can resist cold temperatures and frost or can grow under water.

Among their many meanings, calla lilies symbolize magnificent beauty, purity, abundance, and fertility. Thanks to their unique shape, calla lilies can be paired with different flowers to create any style. For example, pair white calla lilies with red roses for a very elegant, romantic look. For more modern look, choose one from their wide assortment of colors like yellow, orange, pink, purple, red, and even a dark shade of purple that looks nearly black! An example of a modern wedding that incorporated calla lilies is Christy and Tyler’s Phoenician wedding which combined blue beaded wire and beautiful, yellow calla lilies.

The sleek style of the flowers and the rainbow of color options makes the calla lily a great choice for many brides. If you are searching for something modern and sophisticated, classic and elegant, or even fun and funky then give calla lilies a try!
