I hear this every time I start a floral or design proposal when I ask about MUST have floral. “I like peonies, roses and greenery” and I get it because I do too, in fact that’s exactly what I had in my bridal bouquet. I think if it weren’t for my mom’s stacks of books and general love of all things floral I wouldn’t even be writing this post… but here I am to drop some knowledge on adding meaning to your bridal bouquet so get ready!!!
PICK A STYLE
(woah, didn’t know there was styles? Read on….)
This sort or sets the stage for your entire wedding because a super structured bouquet doesn’t really fit the outdoor boho chic vibe you’re going for right? Above are three styles I see the most, for more styles- check this LINK out!
This has sort of become a recent trend and I just have to say I am so hear for it and never want it to end! Some examples I love are adding ribbon in your wedding colors, material from your moms dress, your “something blue” element or even a family heirloom.
Curate YOUR meaning
I sort of discovered this idea one day while googling the meaning behind Christmas greenery and ever since then I am hooked on finding meaning behind specific flower types. I mean how cool is it that you can curate a bouquet filled with intentional flowers to reflect and bring into your marriage.
(PS. Evergreen symbolizes growth because I know you were dying to know).
Here are the MUST have floral meaning that are oh so popular, and I have to admit, these are all qualities I would recommend to anyone entering into this crazy thing we call marriage.
Roses: promise, hope and new beginnings
Peonies: romance, prosperity and good fortune
Eucalyptus: strength and stable growth
