Branded by Flowers

Flowers are incredible for SO many reasons. They are strong, beautiful, and have the power to continuously deliver positive energy and happiness. It is no wonder each one has its own special meaning behind it!

These meanings are a fun way to add even more excitement to your next coffee table arrangement or your someday wedding bouquet!

Kate Middleton‘s wedding bouquet consisted of carefully selected flowers that all held personal meaning for her and William:

Lily of the Valley : Purity and Happiness

Hyacinth : Constancy 

Sweet William :  Obviously….
(but it means courageous behavior)

Myrtle : The emblem of Marriage and Love
(every royal bride since Queen Victoria has had Myrtle in her bouquet !)

Combine them all together and you have one royally beautiful bouquet!

There are tons and tons of flowers in the world, but here is a recent arrangement of meanings from Lauren ConradImage

Which flowers would you choose for your bouquet based off their meaning and beauty??!

Personally peonies {prosperity} and anemonies {unfading love} are my favs… Although I am a HUGE fan of color, there is something to be said about an all white arrangement. And that’s how I like these two together, all white, with the little splash of navy in the center of the anemone and just a hint of baby pink… could there be anything more perfect? I think NOT!

Are you crying yet?

How about now?

Ok, you’re definitely crying… NOW!

This video is one of the many reasons I am obsessed with love. It is proof that fairy tales really do come true. What do you think?

After all of this incredible proposal excitement, Allison & Craig are finally getting married today at Belle Mer in Newport, RI! They came into town lastnight, and I don’t think they have stopped smiling since!

I can’t wait to see them as they get ready to walk down the aisle!

Ps. Couples have brands too! Their wedding was entirely designed by Allison (the invitations, escort cards, and aisle runner all have a logo that Allison designed on Illustrator! Adorable!)
