Jan 16, 2019 01:24 PM Back
Flowers add curb appeal to a home or business. They are ideal gifts to say I’m sorry, Happy Birthday, “I Love You” and so much more…so choosing the right blossoms for your wedding day may be as simple as choosing your favorite bloom; a flower with special significance to the two of you, or as multi-dimensional as understanding the meaning of blooms you choose.

Flowers have their own language…a language of love that was developed and implemented during the Victorian era which defined each distinct blossom and gave it its very own special meaning. Favorite flowers such as the Magnolia, made ever more popular by HGTV’s beloved Joanna Gaines, is the ideal arrangement for minimalist/outdoorsy bride as it implies “love of nature”. The delicate and dainty stephanotis is a symbol of marital bliss and happiness….and of course we all know that yellow roses are an expression of friendship while bright red roses are an expression of love.

So, when it comes to expressing your love on your wedding day think about which flowers express your emotions and your sentiments best. Here are just a few heartfelt matrimonial messages your florist can help you create with the proper floral arrangement.

Great Expectations: Excited about your future? Think about walking down the aisle with an anemone arrangement. This elegant and affordable bloom is an expression of all the amazing expectations you hold for your future. It is also believed to be good luck and a flower that wards off evil. Not to mention that they are guest friendly as they are unscented, which also means no issues with allergies. Their peak season is spring through late fall.

Pure and “Simple” Petals: Want to convey a message a virtue? Think of the ever popular Baby’s Breath which conveys a message of innocence and PURE, unadulterated love. These babies may be tiny but HUGE hits with contemporary couples. Plus, they’re super affordable and in season year round.
