What your wedding flowers mean
If you are planning a wedding with a lot of personal details, remember to personalize your flowers as well. But instead of basing your selection on just color and style, let the meaning and meaning of each flower influence your decision as well.
The “language” of flowers has been around for centuries. During the Victorian era, flowers were used to express emotions when words and gestures failed. Today, many couples follow this romantic practice, creating bouquets and centerpieces with flowers that matter to them. While flowers are popular with a love affair like roses and carnations, there are many other significant traits to consider such as new beginnings (daffodil), belief (iris), and perseverance (hydrangea).
While most flowers have a good mood and positive feelings, you should stay away from those whose meaning has a negative association – begonia symbolizes “caution”, and tansy, “hostile thoughts”.
Color plays an essential role in the meaning of a flower. Everyone’s favorite wedding flower, the rose, has different meanings depending on the shade. While a red rose symbolizes passion, a white rose symbolizes purity and a pink rose symbolizes joy and admiration. The same applies to hyacinths: the white variety means loveliness, the blue variety stands for persistence.
