Wedding flower meanings - modern day flower meanings

Flowers have been given new and alternative meanings to ensure their meanings  still have relevance for today’s bridesand grooms.

The Flowers & Plants Association felt it was time to give the language a bit of a makeover to bring a new, updated meaning to flowers, that suits both florists’ and customers’ needs better.

The tradition started in the time of Queen Victoria, as a way for her subjects to send secret messages through gifts of flowers when it was deemed unseemly to openly express emotions. The meanings were written down in special dictionaries, and the language of flowers was born. Beech was used to represent ancient knowledge, blossom to express good fortune, and lilac to symbolise first love.

The new and  alternative meanings are based on the flower’s folklore, botanical or common name, visual appearance or the sound of the name, to create a language of flowers for the 21st century.

Here’s just a taster of the association’s new flowers and plants meanings and what they can say to today’s modern lovers and friends.
