What you ever wonder what are the most important flowers in a wedding? Yes! The bridal bouquet. I has been truly said that the bride is the center of attention, therefore everything she is wearing and carrying will be caught by everyone’s eyes. |
Choosing your bouquet as a bride is one of the most important things that a girl has to do. Visualize a bride coming down the aisle in her gorgeous white dress she needs stunning flowers to make a statement, what is a bride without her wedding flowers?
Back in the day brides carried flowers on their wedding day to keep evil spirits away from them, today we are far from believing that but, the wedding flowers that you choose for your bouquet will show and reflect part of who you are and what you want to say.
Most brides may chose the flowers for the bouquet based on their likes or the color pallet they have for their wedding, but there are other that will choose their flowers for the bouquet based on the meaning that such flowers have. For example, stephanotis have a symbolic meaning of happiness in the marriage, calla lilies mean beauty, freesias’ mean innocence, gardenias mean joy, orchids mean love, and anemones mean expectation.
Another way of making your bridal bouquet meaningful is by choosing wedding flowers that have a special meaning for both of you. For example chose your birth flowers. You can also choose flowers that resemble or make you remember your first date, or you can choose the flowers that he first gave you. Even chose the state flowers on which you were born, and yes of course your favorite flowers.
Aside from choosing wholesale flowers in the right colors so that they can give a strong meaning to your bouquet there are also many other ways to personalize it. Such as, using jewelry or a piece of cloth from your mother or of your grandmother that has a special meaning. Specific ribbon or pins. Even if your mother or grandmother grows flowers in their garden you might want to incorporate that in your bouquet. Maybe even, why not? Resemble your mother’s or you mother-in-law's bridal bouquet.
The wedding date is not about the guests but is about you and the groom. Embrace it, make it special, fill it up with tons of special little details that you will be able to keep as proof of your love story and that will remain vivid in your memories. And of course, your bridal bouquet can be preserved for many years to give you lasting memories of your special day.
