To non-brides, all bouquets will most likely appear basically the same. They’re just flowers wrapped with ribbon, right? Wrong! Next to the wedding dress, a bride’s bouquet is arguably the most important part of her outfit. If you’re planning a wedding with lots of personal touches, think about personalizing your flowers, too! There are so many styles, shapes and colours to choose from to create a bouquet that complements your gown and style, and is essentially, a representation of you.
The "language" of flowers has been a “thing” for centuries. During Victorian times, for example, flowers were used to express emotions when words and gestures failed. Today, many couples follow this romantic practice and create bouquets and arrangements with flowers whose meanings have some significance to them. While flowers with a love connection are popular, like roses; there are many other meaningful traits, like new beginnings (daffodil), faith (iris), and perseverance (hydrangea) to consider. Colour also plays a huge role in a flower’s meaning, too. While a red rose symbolizes passion, a white rose means purity, while a pink one signifies joy and admiration. Who knew there was so much to consider?
