Three wedding flowers and their unexpected meanings

When choosing a wedding bouquet, some brides opt for a particular colour scheme. Others may wish to recreate the bouquet of their mother or grandmother. However, did you know that flowers have their own special meanings? Here are a few examples.

1. Roses

It’s no surprise that roses are a popular choice for wedding bouquets; most people know that red roses are symbolic of love. White roses are also often used for weddings as they represent new beginnings. You may want to steer clear of yellow roses though, as they’re traditionally symbolic of jealousy.

2. Lilies

The beautiful lily is often seen at weddings; their stunning petals and sweet fragrance complement all bouquets perfectly. Unfortunately, lilies are often associated with funerals, but don’t despair, they needn’t just be used for sombre occasions. A few white lilies in your bouquet can be viewed as a symbol of virtue.

3. Tulips

For a spring wedding, the simple tulip makes a gorgeous addition to any bouquet. Like the red rose, red tulips are symbolic of love, while purple represents prosperity. Perhaps pair them together for your big day to induce good fortune in your marriage and in your future life together?

Believe it or not, tulips are also edible! For something different, you could include tulips in your wedding reception meal.
