This blog on flower symbolism is probably my favorite one I’ve written yet for LaurenConrad.com! I was first introduced to the language of flowers when I was picking out blooms for my wedding bouquet, and my fascination with perennials—and the meaning behind them—has only intensified since. So, I staged a mini floral photo shoot to explain it…
My own bridal bouquet (designed by the very talented Mr. Caballero Creative) included peonies (“prosperity”) and fluffy, pink cabbage roses (“gratitude”). I have to admit—I mostly made that decision on looks alone, but perhaps I’ll add some anemones (“unfading love”) to the mix for an anniversary arrangement.
From a planning perspective, the floral design was definitely one of the highlights of our big day. I remember holding my bouquet in my hands and thinking how surreal everything felt—I had never seen such a beautiful arrangement before!
Oh, and the bridesmaids bouquets weren’t too shabby either…
What flowers would/did you include in your bouquet?
I’m still partial to peonies, even though their alternate meaning is actually “bashfulness.”
P.S. These seed-to-ceremony custom bouquets are a pretty lovely idea too, don’t you think?
