From across the pond…
Congratulations to the Royal newlyweds! Princess bride Katherine chose the flowers of her bouquet because of their special meanings—she carried Lily of the valleys to symbolize the return of happiness; Sweet William flowers for gallantry…her own “sweet William” is indeed gallant!…; hyacinths for constancy of love; ivy for fidelity, marriage, friendship and affection; and myrtle, the emblem of marriage and love. The myrtle is actually from a plant that Queen Victoria planted in 1845, and was also used in the bouquet of Queen Elizabeth’s wedding in 1947.
Call Flower Girl for your wedding flowers, we promise to make you feel royal too!
