Promote your business with weddings tasmania
Throughout the months leading up to the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, the two love-birds planted flower bulbs at their home in Kensington Palace.
The intention was to use the blooms for Meghan’s bouquet. The small garden inhabited forget-me-nots which were Diana, Princess of Wales’s favourite.
Most especially, we can never forget the beautiful lily of the valley. It is a royally significant flower which was also included in Duchess Kate’s wedding bouquet to honour Princess Diana.
It is a royal tradition dating back to the wedding of Queen Victoria’s daughter to have a sprig of myrtle in the bride’s bouquet. Myrtle symbolizes hope and love, making it a fitting addition to any bride’s bouquet.
On the day of the royal wedding, Prince Harry went on a mission to hand-pick some flowers from their lovingly planted garden for Meghan’s bouquet.
However, when he got there, disappointment struck as he found that there were a lot fewer blooms than anticipated.
According to the recording from Vanity Fair, Harry states, “We didn’t have as many flowers in our little garden as we had hoped for because I think it snowed at Easter. That kind of ruined the whole thing!”
Despite the little hiccup, the wedding continued, and it is safe to say that no one noticed a thing!
Jane Packer, a British florist, says: “Royal bouquets all tend to be white. Protocol dictates that for occasions such as these, the bouquet will be all-white.”
Unlike royalty, you can add any amount of colour to your floral arrangements!
However, let your stylist help you out. He/She can guide you towards the right sort of flowers that will accentuate rather than distract from your gown… and don’t forget:
Whether it is a royal wedding or not, a sprig of myrtle is a lovely addition for any bride’s bouquet.
