The Meanings Of Your Wedding Flowers

Roses Are Red
Nothing says “I love you” quite like a dozen red roses, but why stop there?
handwithredroseThe Meanings Of Your Wedding Flowers. For centuries brides have been saying so much without uttering a single word!

It is said that Victorians would send a nosegay of carefully chosen blooms to secretly convey the feelings that society (or shyness, perhaps?) prevented them from expressing openly. Give a nod to this oh-so-demure custom by infusing the romantic language of flowers into your special day.

Fit For A Queen
Want to carry a bit of classic Victoriana in your bouquet? Include a sprig of Myrtle, the emblem of love and marriage, and a tradition honored by every royal bride since Queen Victoria herself! The newly wed Princess Kate was no exception. Along with myrtle, her diminutive-yet-elegant bouquet included Lily of the Valley (trustworthiness); Hyacinth (constancy of love); Ivy (fidelity); and even a bit of Sweet William, representing gallantry to most, but to Kate, we suspect, it means so much more!

VWI Says: Let guests share your little secret: Include a guide to your wedding flowers and their meanings in your program, or a footnote on your invitations or display them in your place settings or centerpieces.Mini Rose Topiary
