Wedding Decor, Flowers, Floral Centerpiece

A wedding is a one-of-kind occasion for the couple as well as the guests. The union of the two people can bring tears as the magic of their love manifests in the appearance and aura of the ceremony. The venue for the ceremony and the reception are well-constructed as each detail defines a part of the couple's relationship.

The setting and theme of the wedding depend on the couple's taste and preference. Some partners enjoy the taste of nature. Hence, they settle for a garden wedding. A wedding garden venue wouldn't be complete without flowers. Flowers do not only add beauty to the venue. Each flower has a meaning you can use to send a message to guests and loved ones. Moreover, you can use it to express your feeling and thoughts.

Baby's  Breath

Baby Breath Flowers, Beach Wedding, Rustic Wedding

The tiny white bells, in short, thin stems symbolize everlasting love. The small dots on the flower translates to the infinite bond between family and romantic partners. Other than the eternal affection, baby's breath also means innocence and purity similar to the incoming bundle of joy or the future addition to the family.


Carnation Flower, Wedding Flowers, Floral Design

The attractive flower is similar to a ball but is full of texture and comes in a variety of colors. Because of its appearance, it easily adds natural beauty to the venue. Carnations express attraction, distinction, and love. Still, a white carnation offers good luck and truthful love. A light red is for admiration while dark ones symbolize deep affection and genuine love.

Calla Lily

The unique form of the calla lily makes it an excellent choice for garden weddings. A yellow calla lily represents change, growth, and joy. It is the perfect flower to announce the addition of a new family member. Lavender or light blue represents grace and beauty. Other shades of the flower are enticing but aren't suitable for weddings.


Daisy Flower, Daisy Flower Centerpiece Ideas

Plain as they come, daisies are actually the symbol of the profound meaning of life. The thin, white petals and yellow center show purity and new beginnings. It is also the symbol of chastity, daintiness, and fertility.


Gardenia Flower, White Flower, Wedding Flowers

The large swirling petals and delightful aroma of gardenias make an ideal flower for weddings. The waxy petals shine under the sunlight which highlights its beauty. Gardenia translates to "you are lovely." It can be used in the bouquet or as an adornment in the wedding dress to complement the bride. The flower also means trust, clarity, and purity of the union. It serves as a protection for the newlywed. It also signifies innocence and self-reflection.


Peony Centerpiece, Floral Design, Wedding Decorations

The soft fluffy petals, light texture, and fragrance of peonies make it the most prominent flower for weddings. Peonies carry a unique charm from its bloom. The flowers bring romance, good fortune, compassion and prosperity to the union. It is the flower for a happy marriage.


Wedding Flower, Roses, Roses Centerpiece

There is no flower similar to the love symbolized by red roses. The flowers represent deep emotions such as love, longing, and desire. When used during weddings, the flower emphasizes the romantic love for the newlyweds. It also expresses admiration, fierceness, and strength.


Stephanotis Flower, Wedding Centerpiece

A bouquet of stephanotis is the common bouquet for brides in formal and classical weddings. It is the sign of marital happiness. Stephanotis comes from two Greek words, "Stephanos" meaning crown and "otos" which means ear. The shape of its flowers resembles an ear canal while the opening of its petals looks like a crown. It is sometimes used for the boutonnieres of grooms and groomsmen.

A wedding ceremony would not be complete without the help of flowers. Flowers are essential elements of design, especially in a garden wedding. You can choose from the various flowers on the list that represents your love language. Moreover, the flowers come in different colors. Rest assured you can find a floral arrangement that complements your wedding garden venue theme.
