The Symbolism Behind Different Flowers in Bridal Bouquets

A wedding is certainly a very beautiful event, but it is intended to praise, primarily, deep wonderful feelings, not outer beauty. So, when preparing for the event, it is important to not only pay attention to the appearance of decorations but also make sure that the symbolism of the details of your wedding matches your feelings and the messages you want to send to the guests.

Of course, when it comes to the symbolism and expression of the most intimate feelings, flowers are your best helpers. Thanks to the language of flowers, it is possible to endow bridal bouquets with any meaning that you like.

The Meaning of Flowers in the Wedding Bouquets

Let’s see what the most popular flowers for bridal bouquets symbolize:

• Roses. The most popular wedding flowers because of their versatility. Red roses symbolize love and passion, yellow – friendship, white – chastity, and coral – desire.

• Peonies. These flowers symbolize romance and prosperity. In China, the peony is called the king of flowers, as well as the flower of “honor and wealth.” Symbolically and metaphorically, the peony is the embodiment of femininity, feminine beauty, and sexuality.

• Lilies of the valley. Symbol of trust and humility. Some believe that the lilies of the valley are also the return of happiness. So, if the bride and groom had a quarrel before the wedding, you can choose this flower as a sign of reconciliation.

• Tulips. These flowers are equivalent to roses at weddings. Like a rose in the West, tulips symbolize ideal love in the East. According to Persian legend, the tulip appeared from the drops of blood spilled by lovers and, since then, has been considered a symbol of perfect love.
