Have you ever wondered what meanings are associated with your favourite flowers? If you are intent on selecting blooms for your big day that not only look nice but also have a sentiment relevant to you, then here is a guide to help you navigate wedding flowers and their meanings.
The Alstromeria is a South American flower which is often referred to as the Lily of the Incas, and it can be found in a variety of colours including apricot, golden yellow and lavender. Alstromerias symbolise friendship, represented by the leaves that twist and turn like the highs and lows of a relationship. The leaves also grow upside down, but we’ll leave that open to your interpretation.
Colours range from crimson red to purple and golden hues. The name is derived from the Greek word for ‘unfading’, which is symbolic of immortality and unfading love. They can also be given as garlands or crowns as a good luck gesture – one for the bridesmaids’ bouquets, perhaps?
Anemones can be found in the wild throughout many European countries, as well as North America and Japan. For the glass half empty types, anemones symbolise fading hope and a sense of feeling forsaken. For the glass half full brides, they represent anticipation – of the healthy, happy and loving marriage you have ahead!
A versatile bloom, the Chrysanthemum can be found in a wide variety of shapes, colours and sizes. Yellow is the more traditional option and it represents slighted love, white used to convey loyalty and truth, and red represents love.
