Choosing your bridal blooms may seem easy but you have to delve deeper into what they represent in order to pick the right kind of flower that embodies your personality. With this guide, you will be able to know the difference of roses from ranunculus, learn that marigolds symbolise jealousy and other significant facts and beliefs about wedding flowers.
So what’s the first consideration that you have to take? Your budget, of course. Relay to your florist how much exactly are you allocating for the flowers. List them according to “must-haves” and “nice to have” so that you will be able to prioritize those really needed. With this, you and your florist will be able to determine the types of blooms wisely without spending on nonessential ones.
Another thing to consider is on how much you weigh the perceived meanings of flowers to go with your wedding theme . Take for instance when you have a vintage theme that do not go well with gerbera blooms as they are ideal for contemporary, modern weddings. Instead, choose peonies, Austin roses, gypsophelia and carnations for that shabby chic theme.
Now, lets have a rundown on the special meanings of various flowers.
1. Lily of the valley = purity and sweetness
2. Sweet pea = departure (bride leaves single life to be one with her spouse)
3. Stephanotis = happiness in your marriage
4. Rose = passion, commitment, deep love
5. Marigolds = grief, cruelty and jealousy so avoid this of course
So, which of these beautiful blooms would you pick for your most special day? Post them in the comments below!
