About Me
replicating floral arrangements from 50 years ago

When my grandmother asked me to plan a renewal ceremony for her and my grandfather, I was honored. She gave me free reign over what was going to happen on the big day. It was to be held on their 50th anniversary at their church, but the rest of the planning was left to me. I took her old wedding pictures and started thinking about what I could do to make that day truly special. That's when I decided to have the flower arrangements made to look just like the ones from the first wedding. It took some digging, but I found out enough about florists to make this part of the planning easy. Learn more about how to replicate flowers from past eras.

Use The Language Of Flowers To Choose Your Wedding Flowers

Julien Riviere

When you are getting married, there are a lot of things that you have to deal with. One of them is what kind of flowers you should get. There are a whole lot of flowers out there and the choices can become overwhelming. Finding a good florist can help you. Not just because they are where you are going to get the flowers from, but they can also tell you the meanings and symbols behind the flowers. That will let you not only have beautiful flowers for your wedding but meaningful ones as well.  


Red roses have always meant passionate love. That's why bouquets of red roses are traditionally given out for Valentine's Day and on dates. White roses are the symbol of purity and innocence. But if you put a red rose and a white rose together they mean unity. That meaning can make red and white roses the perfect flowers for your wedding. 


You may not think about sunflowers as a particularly wedding kind of flower, but the meaning behind them shows that they can be perfect for your wedding. The sunflower can symbolize adoration and dedication. It can also mean true love. Sunflowers come in a variety of colors, so you should be able to find one that will work well for your wedding. They don't have to be in a bouquet, but as the centerpieces on your tables they could be very lovely. 


Tulips are a beautiful spring flower, but you can find them year 'round. They also have various meanings depending on what color you choose. For a wedding, you might want to pick yellow tulips. A yellow tulip symbolizes being hopelessly in love. Red tulips are similar to red roses, in that they both symbolize love, but a red tulip is a declaration of love. 


Violets aren't often seen in wedding arrangements, but maybe they should be. That's because the meaning behind violets is faithfulness. That seems like it would be the perfect addition to any wedding, even if it's just one violet placed in a bouquet or worn as a boutonniere. 

Finding the perfect flowers and the perfect arrangement for your wedding can seem like something that will take a lot of work. However, it doesn't have to be. You can find a florist (such as one from Bouquet Flower Shop) who will be willing to take you by the hand and help you choose flowers that are meaningful and beautiful.
