Bridal bouquets are the epitome of what your wedding was or will be like. Some are big, pink and covered in crystals, while others are fashioned out of twigs and tiny wildflowers. Have you ever wondered if there was a deeper meaning to your bouquet? In fact, there is! Every flower has a meaning that was assigned during the Victorian era so sweethearts could communicate their innermost feelings via blossoms instead of words.
We’ve decoded the bouquet featured in this post, and here’s what we found:
Hydrangea – Understanding
Lily of the Valley – Happiness
Peonies – Ambition & Determination
Cala Lily – Purity
Not too bad for a few flowers chosen out of magazines! If you’d like to decode your wedding bouquet or even plan the flowers for it specifically, check out this article on The Knot.
