Let your spring flowers speak for themselves. Learn the meaning of colors for your wedding theme.
A wedding is the perfect occasion to show your family and friends just how special they are. Spring flowers have a long history of being ideal décor gifts for weddings. Either as a centerpieces at receptions, or guest giveaway favors.
“Flowers are known for having their own language,” said Dejan Krisstan, Marketing Director at Flowers Canada (Ontario). “It is important to keep these meanings in mind so that your flowers communicate exactly what you intend. One bouquet will tell a passionate love story, while the other will be the tale of a never-ending friendship.”
Dejan offered us insight into the meaning of flower colors.
RED. Undoubtedly the color of passion. Giving out a red flower arrangement will communicate your strong and powerful love. With a color the same as the heart, red means seduction, desire and passion. Try red roses, red gerbera daisies, or red tulips.
PINK. A color of innocence and sensitivity, but very romantic. Although red flowers mean love and passion. Pink flowers can show your gentle, yet deep love for someone. Pink flowers can indicate appreciation, joy and happiness. Try pink ranunculus, calla lilies, or potted azaleas.
YELLOW. The color of harmony, trust and kindness. A great middle ground between friendship and love. Yellow flowers have grown increasingly popular as they convey meanings of sympathy, thoughtfulness and friend-like love. Try daffodils, yellow tulips, chrysanthemums, or potted begonias.
ORANGE. Symbolic for growth, enthusiasm and warmth. Orange is the color of friendship and community. Orange flowers send feelings of happiness and joy, with a hint of adventure and spontaneity. Just like a beautiful sunset, these flowers can convey a message of fiery passion and intense desire. Try orange parrot tulips, gerberas, or Asiatic lilies.
GREEN. This color will send wishes of good fortune and harmony. Green is the color of health, youth and prosperity. By giving this flower, you are telling that you would like your relationship to grow and continue to do well. Try an arrangement with lots of green ball chrysanthemums. Or give a lucky houseplant such as jade or pachira.
PURPLE. A royal color which often means fascination and respect. Purple flowers show a very romantic gesture as they carry with them feelings of elegance and charm. These can express feelings of love at first sight and say ‘I admire and adore you’. Try purple iris, campanula, or an elegant potted orchid.
BLUE. The color blue means serenity, intimacy and deep trust. Blue flowers are often used by long-term couples to communicate their never-ending love, trust and loyalty in a relationship. Try soft blue hydrangeas, or a bouquet of delphinium and muscari.
WHITE. The color of purity, innocence, sympathy and humility. This flower will show your loved ones that you are thinking about them. While it does convey messages of purity and innocence, this color means new beginnings as well. Try white daisies, roses or gardenias.
