The Hidden Meanings of Flower Bouquets

Flower Bouquets may be as simple as containing one type of flower or be as elaborate as containing many type of flowers.  Usually the bride will have her wedding bouquet made from her favorite flowers.  Most brides may not be aware of the “message” or “meaning” behind the flowers.   

In choosing flower(s) to use in your wedding bouquet, do you know the meaning behind your flowers? It may say more than what you think they mean. Flowers have special meanings passed down from the ages, from one generation down to the next.  

In the Victorian days where it was taboo for a man to openly express his love for a woman, he would chose a flower which carried a certain meaning and have that sent to her. Back in the days, everyone knew what “the hidden meaning” each flower represented so it was easy for the lady in waiting to easily decipher the meaning of the flower she received.  

Flowers, herbs and spices symbolize unity and protection of the new union. Garlic and onions were used to protect the newlyweds from evil. White garlands represent innocence and chastity.
