For any wedding, the beauty and vibrancy of flowers brings life to everything from aisle decorations to bouquets. They are a reflection of your unique style as an expression for family unity and commitment between two people in love. With this helpful guide at hand, selecting the perfect floral arrangements for your special day has never been easier!
The Language of Wedding Flowers
Couples have celebrated weddings with flowers for centuries, using blooms to convey a multitude of emotions - from expressing hope and fertility in the ancient Greek and Roman empires, to sending unspoken messages during Victorian times. With every wedding flower carefully selected comes an underlying meaning that transcends through time.
Flowers have long been a source of mystery and intrigue, held to contain secret messages from the heart. But few know that these stunning blooms can be arranged in an eloquent language known as Floriography: each species, color and shade carries its own symbolic meaning which together send out heartfelt words without speaking a single word. Although flowers are often seen today at weddings for reasons aside from communication, their timelessness is certain - much like true love itself!
A bride's bouquet is a powerful statement piece and the most important floral arrangement she'll choose - imbued with special meaning, perfectly in tune with her chosen theme, color scheme and season. To accent this grand gesture of beauty, bridesmaids' posies and boutonnieres should be delicate yet stylish statements to complement the overall look.
Wedding Flowers of the Season
Making a selection of wedding flowers can be tricky, especially when you want to use real blooms. While there is no hard and fast rule about which type to pick, it's best to go with what nature provides - seasonal blossoms! However, if your heart is set on something more unique or not typically in bloom during the time of year that you plan on tying the knot, don't worry; Crystal Ballroom Saint Augustine has an amazing collection of silk flowers if your selection of flowers is a of-season plants.
