Flowers and their Meanings

 

As a planner I am often asked about different aspects of the necessary items needed for the wedding.  One of these is the flowers that might make up a bouquet or a centerpiece. The flowers add the beauty and set the mood for the room décor in many instances, and I always recommend using a professional floral designer to assist with this aspect of the wedding.

 

The following are some of the meanings of the different flowers that might be a part of the wedding day:

 

Rose -Red meaning love, simplicity, and happiness

 

Roses red and white meaning unity

 

Iris meaning good news and inspiration

 

Bells of Ireland meaning luck

 

Forget Me Not meaning true love

 

Pink Carnation meaning a mother’s love and gratitude

 

Hydrangea meaning perseverance

 

Violet meaning faithfulness

 

Lily meaning birth and hope

 

Ranunculus meaning radiant

 

Yellow Tulip meaning hopelessly in love

 

Poppy meaning pleasure

 

You now are on your way to being a bit more educated before meeting with your floral designer.  Have fun designing your bouquets and centerpieces!
