Royal Wedding – Catherine’s Flowers

Gorgeous flowers, it draws on the traditions of flowers
of significance for the Royal Family, the Middleton family
and on the language of flowers.

The bouquet was petit, but the tiny blooms echo the
delicate lace on the bodice of the dress.  The flowers
complimented the gown perfectly.

Catherine Middleton’s wedding bouquet was a shield-
shaped wired bouquet consisting of:
Lily-of-the-valley symbolising return of happiness
Sweet William for gallantry (and a charming tribute to her husband)
Hyacinth for constancy of love
Ivy for fidelity, marriage, friendship and affection
Myrtle, the emblem of marriage and love.
The myrtle is actually from a plant that Queen Victoria planted
 in 1845 and also used in Queen Elizabeth’s wedding in 1947.

Bouquets carried by the little bridesmaids used the same
flowers, but the wreaths worn by the little girls echoed
Catherine’s Mother’s flowers – Lily-of-the-Valley.

In Australia, Lily-of-the-Valley blooms in November.
The tiny white bell-shaped flowers are not only
delicately beautiful, but they also have a sweet,
heavenly scent.

Their flowering season is brief, about 3-4 weeks.
