Wedding Flowers: A Symbolic Expression of Love

Throughout history, wedding flowers have held a significance far beyond mere decorative elements. In ancient Greek and Roman traditions, brides and grooms adorned themselves with floral garlands to symbolize fertility, optimism, and the new life they were embarking on together. The Victorian era elevated this symbolism to a point where each flower carried potent meanings, enabling the exchange of cryptic and unspoken messages.


This hidden language of flowers, known as floriography, attributes symbolic significance to each flower, color, and shade. When arranged in specific combinations, these flowers could convey complete and comprehensible thoughts. Although today we may not select wedding flowers solely to transmit messages, their timeless symbolism endures.

Bouquets: Making a Statement


The bride's bouquet serves as a powerful statement and is often the most significant floral arrangement you'll select. It should always convey a meaningful message while harmonizing with the wedding's theme, color palette, and seasonal vibes. Bridesmaids' bouquets and boutonnieres, on the other hand, are typically less elaborate, designed to complement the bride's bouquet and the overall color scheme.


Wedding Flowers Aligned with the Season


While there are no strict rules governing the choice of wedding flowers, opting for real blooms entails embracing the current season and selecting flowers in full bloom. Although it's possible to source out-of-season flowers, they may prove more challenging to find and potentially costlier.


Inspiration and Thematic Harmony


Wedding flowers transcend mere decoration; they infuse fragrance, enhance the dramatic ambiance, and contribute to the overall mood of your special day. The choice of flower type and color should harmonize seamlessly with your wedding's theme and color palette.


Developing a theme and crafting a suitable color scheme need not be an overwhelming task. Seek inspiration and ideas at an all-inclusive wedding venue equipped with a design team well-versed in the language of wedding flowers. They can assist you in crafting a wedding that is both aesthetically pleasing and deeply meaningful.
