My Ideal Wedding Floral Bouquet
Creating the perfect wedding that you imagine in your mind can be tricky. So much of a wedding is traditional and plain, and it makes picking colors that stand out important. You want your colors to be noticeable, and part of that is found in the flowers. With the bride in white, the groom in black and the groomsman in similar colors, you want the color of your flowers to pop. This means not only should the flowers tie into the wedding, they should start with the bouquet and work throughout the wedding.
Picking the right flowers and the perfect floral bouquet is as tricky as the finding the right wording for invitations, the venue for the service and the location for the reception. Choosing the right flowers is not just about color. In fact, the flowers speak volumes to the guests. During the Victorian era, flowers were each given special significance. The message behind particular flowers were greatly refined to a point where subtle messages could be sent via particular arrangements and bouquets. Even today, we associate certain flowers with specific occasions and significance. For example, who doesn’t think of romance when thinking about red roses? So, how do you choose the right flowers that represent everything you want to say about your wedding in both color and meaning?
Wedding attendants quickly notice the type of flower you choose. Flowers just have a way of attracting most people’s attention. That is why it is important for you to start with the symbolism of the flower. If subtle messages and the significance of things are important to you, it is important to ensure that you are conveying the right symbolism. Mixing of flowers is a choice couples may choose in order to convey several meanings at once. For example, the use of baby’s breath in a bridal bouquet symbolizes innocence. The daisy symbolizes the sharing of feelings and gardenias represent purity or joy. A bouquet of these flowers is inexpensive, since they are available year round, and they convey the innocence of the bride as well as the feelings of joy from the couple.
If you want a flower that can be shared between the bridal bouquet, grooms lapel flower and the flowers of the bridesmaids a choice of Stephanotis is a good option. The stephanotis is uncommon to some brides. It is available year round, which makes it easy to find. The blossoms of the flower are trumpet shaped which bring the idea of heralding in the joy and joining of the new couple. They symbolize marital bliss and happiness, and they also hold a fragrant scent that appeals to both guests and the couple.
The color is up to you and your theme choices. However, there are a few colors that should be considered over others. Red symbolize love while pink symbolizes innocence and purity. Lavender is a popular choice since it is easy to blend with other colors and it represents memories of the past and moving onto the future. Gold or yellow shows optimism and luxurious living. The truth is, once you find the meaning you want to convey through the flowers, finding the color is an easier option. Matching the two will make the wedding pop and will show exactly how you feel about your big day.
