The Secretive Language of Flowers

By now you might already know that every flower, plant and herb has its own meaning and hidden messages. Usually it’s the flowers that are used to communicate feelings. And this traditional has been going on since the ancient times. Even before the Industrialization age.

Those were the days that played a huge part in where we are now as a society. A society that uses emojis and flowers to communicate feelings and sentiments. A society that is open enough so that men and women alike can gift flowers to each other without having to deal with any societal conundrums.

We see flowers being used all over the world. But especially in the pop culture. They are filled with hidden meanings of flowers and symbols that they represent.

So in this post, I will uncover the meaning of 3 flowers that you might not know before.

Let’s just jump into it shall we?

 

  1. Sunflowers

Sunflowers represent adoration and false riches. But the issue with this flower is that its meaning can be easily misunderstood if the person you are sending this flower to, does not already understand your feeling before receiving it.

That is the reason why you don’t see many people gifting these flowers.

But if you already know the person very well, sending a bouquet of sunflowers can be the best flower that you can send.

 

  1. Coreopsis

I know the name of this flower doesn’t easily slip off the tongue, but Coreopsis represents love at first sight.

But now you might be asking, “Doreen, in what situation will I be able to gift a Coreopsis to someone?”

Good question.

Let’s say that you’re just strolling through the streets and you find a beautiful girl walking by. You fall in love with her beauty.

What do you do next? Do you approach her out of the blue?

Bad idea. Maybe she’s having a bad day, or maybe she needs to be somewhere and you’re in the way. Maybe her friends are waiting for her at Starbucks. Who knows.

The best thing to do in this situation is to gift her this flower and wish her a good day. And then if she wants to, she can share her contact details with you and then you guys can meet up later. If not, you just made her day. It’s a win-win situation.

 

  1. Carnation

A single pink carnation is the symbol of pure love. You can gift this to your wife or girlfriend during your anniversary or whenever you feel like it. There is no perfect time to show your love. You can do it whenever you want.

A white carnation on the other hand is a symbol of remembered love. These carnations are usually worn on Mother’s Day.

Why Do People Gift Flowers?

For centuries, people have been gifting each other flowers. And even before anyone knew, it became a way of expressing your love and interest in someone else. Typically, a man gives a flower to a woman to show his interest in her. But as a society, we have progressed enough to see women give flowers to men as well.

I don’t think that this tradition will go away anytime soon. In fact, I strongly believe that this tradition will never go away.

Today, flowers have extended their role from just being a way to express your love and desire for someone to something much more than that. Today people gift flowers to their loved ones to celebrate different occasions like an anniversary, a birthday, or even after someone gets a promotion at their job. They celebrate that by gifting flowers.

Not only that, people also use flowers as a way to show sympathy or offer an apology. I bet you would’ve never thought of that (besides watching it in Hollywood movies).

Regardless of the reason why you want to gift flowers, it is a universally accepted concept that people have. And it is a good concept because I have experienced first-hand how hard it can be to choose a gift for someone. And I would rather have the option to choose flowers instead any day of the week.

So to answer your question about why do people gift flowers?

It is because that’s what they know. That’s the way they know to appreciate someone, to celebrate an occasion, and in some cases, to offer sympathy or an apology to someone.

Women love flowers more than anything. And just imagine if your boyfriend was standing at your doorstep with a bouquet of red roses and offering you an apology.

How would you feel?

Pretty special right? And you would also accept his apology because of his kind gesture and being willing to show that he cares about you. And the fact that he is willing to go the extra mile for you, is all you needed to know that he will be by your side during the hard times. And not ignore you like everyone else.

That’s what flowers are all about. They convey feeling, messages more efficiently than words can. With flowers, you don’t need to speak, you just need to show up and everything will go smoothly for you.

It doesn’t matter whether you were fighting with each other, or whether you are a man or a woman. When you see your loved one standing out there with a bouquet of flowers, you will let them in no matter what. And you would be open to making the best of that time.

Tips for Choosing the Best Wedding Flowers

Flowers are the best way to show your love to someone and making weddings amazing. Not only do they add color to the occasion, they also add a scent that feels much better than perfume. That is the reason why flowers are one of the most integral parts of a wedding.

So to make sure that you are choosing the right flowers for your wedding, we have compiled a short list of tips that you can keep in mind the next time you go out to meet your florist. If you want to skip the choosing process and just buy the flowers, check out BetterGiftFlowers: The #1 Online Flowers Delivery Company.

But I also know that finding the right florist can be tricky as well. And so, I will be including a couple of tips on that as well. So without any further ado, let’s jump right into it.

 

Finding the Perfect Florist

This is the first step that most of you will be taking toward choosing the right flowers. You also want to make sure that you choose the right florist who knows a lot about flowers and what would work best with the season, and the location of your wedding. To ensure that, you want to make sure that the florist you choose, specializes in handling wedding flowers.

Common sense says that you should always consult at least two to three florists before deciding on which one to choose.
Remember, everything you choose, do and say, should make sure that the florist would fit into your wedding budget. That’s something you should make absolutely clear before making any commitments.

I do have to say that these days it is easier to choose the right florist because they usually write on blogs about the people they are serving. And not only that, they usually are collaborating with other people in the wedding business as well. People like Cake bakers, etc. So you can even check out the blogs of these cake bakers as well to see what kind of cakes you can get for your wedding. And it is easier for them to write about it thanks to sites like WordPress and MyFreeSites.

Once you choose your florist, you want to make sure that they understand how you want your wedding to be. A lot of the times I see that florists just choose what they think would be perfect, but do not think about what their clients want. So you want to make sure that you both are on the same page. Once you’re certain about that, then you can move forward with other tips in this article.

The Season Is the Most Important Part

This is true. I cannot emphasize this enough. The season is the most important part when it comes to choosing the right flowers for your wedding. And that is the why you should already know which season you are planning your wedding in.
You will be choosing a completely different set of flowers if your wedding is in summer than the flowers you would’ve chosen if your wedding was in winter.

Not only that, you also want to coordinate with your florist and check the availability of those flowers. Ideally, you want to choose flowers that are abundantly available in the season of your choosing. But if they are not, you might want to choose flowers that are not in a very high supply. But this would mean that you might end up spending a lot more on flowers that you previously would’ve thought.

My suggestion would be to choose flowers that are not used in almost every other wedding. Flowers like roses, orchids, etc. are used in almost every wedding out there. So if you want to save a bit of money, choose something else.
You’d be surprised how much money you can save by just choosing non-traditional flowers. Not only that, your guests might also end up remembering your wedding just because of that.

 

Take Care of the Environment

Choosing eco-friendly flowers is just as important as choosing the right flowers for your wedding. Consult your florist and see if they can fit in the idea of eco-friendly flowers within your budget. If they cannot, you can always choose to go with recycling the flowers you used at your wedding and call it a day.

Lastly, you also want to do some research on the flowers yourself. It is beneficial to know a thing or two about the flowers that you would be spending a couple grand on. Not only that, you also want to read up on the history of the flowers and the occasions on which most of them are used. Like it or not, there will be people attending your wedding who know their history and might even know a lot about flowers.

So if you know about the flowers yourself, you would have an easier discussion with your florist and both of you can end up choosing the best flowers for your wedding.
