The flowers that you see at weddings aren’t just there to look beautiful—each of them carries its own symbolism. Roses, of course, stand for love and beauty. Daisies symbolize innocence. Tulips represent passion, and gardenias symbolize pure joy. Lilies symbolize purity and honor, while lilies of the valley simply stand for happiness. Magnolias represent nature, while irises stand for faith and wisdom. Lilacs represent the freshness and innocence of newfound love, which makes them a perfect flower for any wedding. The same goes for daffodils, a flower strongly associated with spring and new beginnings. If you’re planning a wedding, you should be sure to take the time to think about what each flower you pick means.
