Flower symbolism is widely recognized by many different cultures all over the planet. Certain flowers mean certain things, and including some of them in your wedding bouquet can help you to celebrate the big event with symbolism and meaning. If you're still putting your wedding bouquet together, consider introducing one or more of these four flowers into it.
Daffodils—especially yellow daffodils—are beautiful, vibrant flowers that would look beautiful in any bouquet. However, it's their meaning that really makes them the perfect bouquet choice. They're a symbol of new beginnings. This makes them a wonderful way to celebrate the new life that you and your loved one are about to start together.
Chrysanthemums are beautiful flowers that come in a wide variety of colors, making them a great way to add a pop of color to a wedding bouquet. They look a lot like multi-tiered, overgrown daisies. They're said to indicate fidelity and loyalty, two important aspects of any good marriage. This makes them a wonderful choice for a wedding bouquet.
White dittanies look a little like lilacs, with long petals and vibrant yellow pistil in the middle. White dittanies are considered to be romantic flowers and are often recommended when wanting to instill a sense of passion. If you and your loved one are head-over-heels for each other, this may be a nice choice, especially if you want to keep your bouquet looking understated.
Lastly, peonies are sold both open and closed. When they're still closed, they resemble roses; when open, they have short rounded petals and a short yellow pistil in the middle.
Peonies are said to be associated with love and specifically, a happy marriage. How perfect is that? However, peonies can also demonstrate modesty and shyness, so if you're the bashful type, you can hide behind a few peonies in your wedding photos.
When choosing flowers for your wedding, you don't need to limit yourself to traditional choices, like roses. Consider branching out and trying other flowers. These options give you plenty of colors and styles to choose from, all while integrating special meaning. They will leave an impression on your wedding guests and will have a secret, special meaning just for you and your loved one that you'll be reminded of whenever you look at the dried bouquet or see wedding photos of you carrying them down the aisle.
