What Your Wedding Flowers Say

What Your Wedding Flowers Say

Flowers have been a part of wedding celebrations for as long as we have recorded history. Early Greek and Roman brides wore garlands of fresh herbs or ivy in their hair as a talisman against evil spirits. They also symbolized fertility and wishes for good fortune to shine on the new couple.

No one is quite sure when garlands evolved into hand held bouquets but from time immemorial flowers have been an integral part of the wedding décor. Favorite flowers change over the years but over time, certain flowers have assumed a coded identity. In Victorian times (mid to late 1800s) flowers held messages for those who knew the “code”.
