Notes from Amber
When choosing flowers for your wedding it can be fun to look at the folklore that accompanies the flowers.
Lilac, with its wonderfully heady scent with a hint of vanilla is one of my favourite Spring flowers, but what a chequered reputation it has! Many a bride’s mother will tell me that it’s unlucky to bring white Lilac into the home, whilst purple Lilac is believed to signify first love. Whatever the myths that accompany Lilac, there can be no doubting that it makes a real statement when used en masse or is a gorgeous and very fragrant addition to any bouquet or arrangement.
The cut flowers of Cyclamen with their exquisite, ruffled petals are perfect for a March wedding. In the language of flowers giving someone Cyclamen expresses love and sincere tenderness – what could be sweeter than placing one on each of your guest’s napkins?
So have fun choosing your flowers and if you want to investigate the world of flower folklore, myths and language you never know what hidden messages you can send your partner, family or friends!
Are any of you a March Bride…?
Have you chosen your flowers because of their meaning or subtle symbolism…?
Oh and isn’t it lovely to see Bluebells are in season – These little pretties so remind me of being a little girl down at the duck pond, walking the family dog with my Dad.
Lots of love…
