The Language of Wedding Flowers
Flower Meanings for Your Wedding Flowers

As every flower lover knows that flowers have a language all their own.
In Victorian times people used them as symbols with specific meanings.  
Today, since even the experts disagree on the true meanings of many flowers,
 there are no longer any hard and fast rules.
Over time, different varieties have developed personal and 
varied meanings for different people, representing special moments in their own lives.
So, while flowers generally convey thoughtfulness and love, 
below are some of the more traditional meanings we have compiled for you from several sources.
Have fun!
