Flower meanings

Throughout history, certain flowers have been attached to different meanings and were used to portray certain emotions and affections when given as gifts, especially during the Victorian Era. These days the meanings aren’t as often used but rather chosen for the appearance of the bloom and the colours available. But sometimes it can be fun to design your wedding bouquet with a specific meaning in mind!
