Hardly any accessory receives as much attention during the wedding as the bridal bouquet. What color is it, how opulent is it, who catches it…? No wonder, since the pretty bundle supposedly reveals a lot about the future wife – and that doesn’t just mean her throwing qualities.

The classic among wedding flowers has lost none of its attractiveness to this day. The rose is and remains the symbol of love, red roses in the bridal bouquet tell of passion and passion for the partner. Pink roses, on the other hand, stand for tenderness, white roses for innocence and purity. A bouquet of roses looks particularly stylish when it is presented in its purest form. But the combination with hydrangeas or lilies can also do well.
The symbolism of the peony is as opulent as its flowers. She tells of wealth and beauty and today is one of the most popular candidates for the bridal bouquet. The red, pink, white or yellow colored flowers look great alone or in combination, the spring and summer flowering time is perfectly timed for the height of the wedding season. Our tip: the romantic peony does not need many claqueurs, less is often more in peony bouquets.
If you want to attract attention, lilies are a good choice. While the intense scent can be annoying when decorating the table, the shape of the flower in the bridal bouquet is definitely an eye-catcher. Consequently, the attributes noble, sensual, majestic and exotic are assigned to this flower. Femininity and love are also core statements of the lily in floriography – the language of flowers. If the flower is used in the bridal bouquet, the yellow pistils should be removed, otherwise there will be stains on the dress.

The dahlia whispers a romantic “I am yours…” and symbolizes happiness, gratitude, loyalty. The many different flower colors can be wonderfully combined and create a natural, playful bridal bouquet that every wedding guest will definitely stretch out their arms for.
