As the wedding season draws near there are quite a few brides and maybe even a few grooms out there selecting which flowers to have in their wedding. From bouquets to the boutonnières, flowers are a great way to tie together a theme and the feel of a wedding. We’ve all heard of people choosing blooms for their color and scent but what about their meaning? It’s pretty common knowledge that red roses mean love but what about the rest of the colors and species? According to the Society of American Florists each flower has a different meaning.
Here are a few surprising ones:
Black Eyed Susan-encouragement
Red & White-Unity
Star of Bethlehem-hope
So the next time you send a wedding gift of flowers or are purchasing your own, consider something like the Summer Medley with bachelor buttons, delphinium, red carnations, red and yellow roses. It says, “May you always anticipate each others bold and flashy zealous love.”
