Wedding Flowers & Their Meanings



Have you ever considered what your wedding flowers mean ? Are you wanting your bouquet to reflect certain ideals and not just match your colour scheme ? Then read on for our top list of wedding flowers and their meanings.



Roses


Top of the list for many brides and the most common choice for a bridal bouquet. Roses signify love, affection and passion, but different colours also have more indepth meanings.


Red - Passion - Love - Beauty - Romance



Pink - Gentleness - Admiration - Love - Gratitude



Purple - Charm - Enchantment - Magnetism



White - New Beginnings - Purity - Respect



Yellow - Empathy - Optimism - Friendship



Blue - Prosperity - Love - Immortality



Orange - Frienship - Love - Congratulations




Lilies


Another flower high on the wedding bouquet list for their dramatic impact. Because of the Greek myth of Hera and Zeus lilies are associated with rebirth and motherhood, as well as purity and devotion.


Pink - Love - Admiration - Compassion - Femininity - Understanding



White - Purity - Heaven - Modesty



Yellow - Friendship - Joy - Happiness



Orange - Honour - Respect



Purple - Royalty - Privilege - Passion




More Flower Options


This is just a few of the flowers you could use at your wedding, but there are no hard and fast rules, the florist really is your oyster.


Baby's Breath - Innocence - Everlasting Love - Pureness


Perfect, delicate white clusters of flowers, a great choice if you want a small, lightweight and unassuming wedding bouquet.



Carnation - Love - Fascination - Distinction


Pink signify "I will never forget you", white signify "sweet and lovely", red signify "deep love and affection", but be wary of other colours such as yellow which signifies disdain.



Lily of the Valley - Purity - Sweetness - Humility


Pretty little bell shaped flowers that look exactly what they symbolise.



Myrtle - Good Luck - Love


If you need the perfect bloom to add to a wedding bouquet, look no further than myrtle, there's no better flower to carry down the aisle.



Dahlia - Dignity - Pomp


many of us immediately think of the Black Dahlia, but with their meaning they are truly not out of place at a momentous occasion such as your wedding.



Daisy - Innocence


With their cheery, sunny little faces, the symbolism definitely makes sense.



Chrysanthemum - Honesty


A simple but strong symbolism and they look great in autumn wedding bouquets.



Daffodil - New Beginnings


A firm favourite for spring weddings adding a brightness and joy to any occasion.



We could carry on with this list forever, but this hopefully whets your appetite to research a little more and consider your wedding bouquet and flowers as a way to symbolise your feelings as well as being a beautiful accessory to your wedding day.
