Clover

This blossom is not as common at weddings as it should be! It stands for good fortune and a happy future.

Snapdragon

This flower symbolizes a giving nature, something that is important in all relationships. Its unique petals that open and close like a mouth also make it a fun choice for wedding arrangements.

The Sweet Pea usually stands for goodbyes, but has a different meaning when used in a wedding bouquet. Including sweet peas in the arrangements ensures that the bride and groom will live in blissful pleasure.

Lilly of the Valley

This delicate little flower stands for sweetness and increased happiness. It also has a lovely scent and looks dainty and sweet when nestled amongst larger blossoms.
