Wedding anniversaries are a special time for any couple to look back and celebrate the good times that they’ve enjoyed, be that over one year or 50! Of course, we believe that no anniversary is complete without flowers. Did you know that much as each anniversary is marked by certain gifts, there are certain flowers you should pick for each one, too? Here’s what to choose and what those choices mean.
Young, passionate love and the ties of your lasting vows and commitment.
LILY OF THE VALLEY
The purity of your blossoming relationship, as well as modesty and devotion.
Loyalty and fidelity; the strong and warm bond that your marriage has formed.
The comforting familiarity of your relationship, as well as the surprises still to come.
The centre represents your intense bond and shared experiences while the petals are all of the ways you will grow together.
How far your love has grown and evolved over the last six years.
Trust and faithfulness.
First love, a chance to look back and reminisce about the sweetness of your first emotions with each other.
BIRDS OF PARADISE
The magnificence and glamour of marriage, as well as the adventures yet to come together.
Each daffodil represents a separate memory from your ten years of marriage.
Spring, renewal and rebirth, to show your renewed commitment to each other into your second decade of marriage.
Honour and fortune of a happy and loving relationship
While they primarily represent ‘an abundance of love’, chrysanthemums are also thought to bring luck.
Pure affection, understanding and a more mature charm.
Passion, romance and the beauty of love.
Wisdom and good fortune
Royalty! What better way to show your spouse that you still hold them as royalty in your eyes after all these years?
