We all look for the perfect flower decorations and the flower bouquet for our marvellous wedding. The never-ending question – which flowers should I use? Your wedding in Spain shouldn’t be an exception to hold back on your flower dreams! Flowers are the perfect decoration to your dress and your wedding in Spain.
Many celebrities are fully aware of this fact. Beyoncé, for example, had an exclusive wedding in New York and she had over 100,000 orchids! Can you imagine how beautiful it must have been? They were all tailor made within a couple of days. The poor florist had teams of people assembling each orchid decoration manually. Only the best of the best for Beyoncé. The cost of course was undisclosed. However, I think more planning is needed for your wedding in Spain.
The appropriate flower
The most popular and appropriate flower used for a wedding in Spain are carnations. Did you know that carnations are the national flower of Spain? How fitting for your wedding in Spain. They will probably be cheaper than the usual roses, and you will have a wide range of colours you can select from. They are visually stunning and are beautiful when they fully bloom.
If you are a Sex and the City fan, you might remember the time when Charlotte told Carrie that pink carnations are according to her “eeew”. In fact, I remember when Jack Berger gave Carrie pink carnations the night before he dumped her. However, this is definitely not the case for your wedding in Spain. Carnations in Spain are said to symbolise passion and it’s no surprise that red carnations are the national flower. Hence, carnations are the perfect flower for your wedding in Spain.
You have probably seen many cartoons where people dance with a carnation gripped in between one’s teeth. Believe it or not, you might see this practice while you are in Spain with your family. It’s very common to hold the carnation flower between your teeth! Maybe not a great idea to grasp the carnations in your teeth while you walk down the aisle for your wedding in Spain. It might not send the right message to your guests arriving from the UK. They might not understand that this, in fact is a symbol of passion.
It is also said, that if you receive a bouquet of red carnations from a man, it means that he absolutely adores you. If you receive white carnations, it suggests that the man is still single and is looking to date you. These are of course traditions in some parts of Spain. So, do your research on the meaning of flowers for your wedding in Spain. People take these things very seriously and selecting the wrong flower can ruin the vibe of your wedding.
My best friend has recently chosen lavender as her wedding theme. Yes, you guessed right! Everything is also in the colour of lavender. What’s your favourite flower you’ve seen in weddings? I personally like king lilies, but they are so aromatic, it might be too much for some people. Leave a comment!
