Floral Inspiration Highlights Your Wedding Day

There is tremendous history when it comes to the use of flowers in weddings. They’re used in every way from the bridal bouquet to decor to the flower girl showering petals on the aisle. Flowers are often a key theme in wedding dresses as well — in the form of floral patterns and design. In this blog post we’ll showcase some of our favorite floral designs at NYB&G of Columbia. But to get started, let’s learn more about the history of flowers in weddings:

The origin of this floral tradition stems back to ancient Rome. Flowers were a common decoration at Roman weddings because they were known as symbols of new beginnings, fidelity, and fertility.

Herbs were more prominent in Middle Age bouquets than flowers, especially dill and garlic, which supposedly kept evil spirits and bad luck away. The dill reappeared at the wedding feast to get the newlyweds ready to consummate their love that night. Yes, even our ancestors knew about the wonders of aphrodisiac foods.

By the Victorian era, exchanging flowers became an increasingly popular way to express love. Keeping with the romantic theme, they eventually became linked to weddings. Learn more intriguing bridal bouquet history, compliments of  Reader’s Digest

Before we go, here’s more interesting history about weddings and bridal attire. Specifically, as it relates to Queen Victoria and her extremely influential royal wedding of 1840.

She made white wedding dresses popular.

At the time, wedding dresses were not necessarily white. Victoria chose to have her dress made in white not to reflect purity, but to best show off its lace. (The lace makers in England were then struggling, and her commission was intended to give the industry a boon.) The young queen decreed that no one else should wear white at her wedding—trend-setting, again—and had the pattern for her dress destroyed so that no one could copy it afterwards.

The Queen also wore some great accessories.

On her wedding day, Victoria wore Turkish diamond earrings, a sapphire brooch from Albert, and white satin shoes. She also wore kid gloves, and a wreath of myrtle and orange blossoms. (Orange blossoms were also embroidered on her train.) Learn more about one of the most celebrated weddings in history, compliments of Vogue
