Bad luck...


I was discussing my wedding flowers yesterday and told my MIL I wanted calla lilies in my bouquet and she looked at me like I was something from outer space. Apparent they're bad luck at a wedding? I want them as they were my grandmas favourite flower and I'd like to incorporate my grandma as much as possible. Anyone know the story behind calla lilies?

Hmm I think it might be a cultural difference, in the US where I am, calla lilies are a VERY popular wedding flower. The more trendier ones are flame calla lilies and varieties like that with more color. I've seen them in weddings and I was definitely gonna do the flame calla for mine except we ended up not doing flower centerpieces at al.

And I've actually never seen calla lilies at funerals here....

In some parts its considered as a bad omen so I think you should avoid it if she doesn't approve of it.
