tic-tock has created ceremony arrangements for hundreds of beautiful weddings! As each couple is unique, so are the ceremonies; with no two being exactly the same. We love creating beautiful arrangements, chuppas and bouquets for one of the most important events in life.
Flowers are such an integral part of a wedding ceremony and are also wonderful for expressing emotions. Flowers have always played an important role in a marriage ceremony, although back in the old days, more attention was paid to symbolism than is now.
Symbolism and floral meaning dates back to the Elizabethan era. A Flower Language was actually introduced to the Swedish court in 1714 by Charles II and this new language spread throughout Europe. Because people were not encouraged to express their feelings opening during this era, it was common to use flowers to communicate emotionally.
For example, Ivy symbolizes eternal fidelity, Lilies are majestic and Hyacinth represent loveliness. Roses are rich with symbolism, depending on their color. Red is for love, passion, desire and respect. White roses symbolize innocence and truth and purple or lilac roses mean love at first site.
Whether you choose to incorporate specific symbolism into your ceremony or not, your flowers should consist of what you love. Peruse magazines and the internet for photos of arrangements you love. You'll know when you see the flowers that speak to your heart.
