Hello everyone. Why do red roses symbolize love? The floral bouquet came to popularity in Victorian times. The Victorians had subscribed a meaning to each flower and they would send them to show their true feelings. Roses meant love, so if you were in love with someone you would be sure to include a red rose and their bouquet. Since then flowers are one of the major choices a bride makes for her wedding day. Modern or traditional? Big or small? Here are a couple of ideas that I have seen that will be sure to add a unique touch to your big day. The first idea I have heard is great for a country wedding. They had each guest bring a flower and before the bridal party walked down the isle they turned them into simple bouquets.
idea I wish I had for my wedding. You can use antique broaches and wire them into a bouquet. I have even heard a daughter of an upscale jewelry store in our area had hers made from real diamond broaches! I made this one and had a great time looking at flee markets and antique stores for all the lovely broaches!
When my Mom (okay step mother but we don't like that term...I watched Cinderella too much as a child.) and Dad married this past december she choose to combine broach idea but included some flowers as well!
This was a beautiful bouquet created by Winnie at Savoir Faire in West Akron, Ohio (www.sfevents.net). The theme was a Tuscany with beautiful sunflowers, grape vine and yes even grapes themselves. So when it comes to flowers you can think outside the box and including elements such as grapes, vines, feathers or anything that catches you fancy!
