4 Gorgeous Wedding Flower Alternatives Besides Roses & Their Meanings
Given that the red rose is a traditional symbol of love, these flowers are not an uncommon sight at weddings. However, if you and your partner want something different but meaningful, we’ve compiled a list of alternative flower choices that can brighten up your special day!
1. Calla Lily
Although white lilies are commonly avoided due to their association with funerals, they actually represent the innocence that is restored to a soul. In addition, the lily also symbolises “magnificent beauty” in the language of flowers, as well as purity and long-lasting unions, which makes them a perfect representation of the union between you and your partner.
Sunflowers are well-known as representations of cheerfulness and joy. In a more traditional sense, however, these flowers also represent long life, good fortune, and vitality in Chinese culture, which is perfect for couples who come from traditional Chinese families. Adding these large, gorgeous blooms to your ceremony is sure to brighten up your day!
Marriage is all about mutual appreciation, respect, and enlightenment of each other’s lives, all of which are represented by the lush blooms of the hydrangea flower. Large and voluminous, these flowers come in multiple colourful variations that range from chic and subtle to camp and bohemian. Whatever you choose, hydrangeas are sure to bring your wedding bouquet and decor to the next level.
The Orchid is Singapore’s national flower, chosen for its hardiness and resilience, as well as its ability to bloom throughout the year. This makes a wonderful metaphor for the future of your relationship with your partner, as they also represent love, beauty, and refinement – all the necessary ingredients for a beautiful, long-lasting marriage!
