Hey, brides! This is what the colours in your wedding bouquet represent

Written by Wedding Online, published 30th mar 2017

Whether you've opted for one block shade or a whole rainbow - here are what the blooms in your arrangement mean!

BLUE is a very popular colour. It is seen as trustworthy, dependable and committed. The colour of the sky and the ocean, blue is perceived as a constant in our lives.

GREEN is the colour of nature, fertility and life. Grass-green is the most restful shade. Green symbolises self-respect, well-being and balance and is a safe colour that works in most settings and venues.

This is what the flowers in your bouquet represent

YELLOW shines with optimism, enlightenment and happiness. Shades of golden yellow carry the promise of a positive future.

ORANGE is fun and flamboyant, radiating warmth and energy. Terrecotta, peach and rust also have a very broad appeal.

7 styles to consider for your wedding bouquet

RED is the colour of passion and commands attention. Using this shade as an accent colour will immediately draw everyone's gaze to a particular decorative element.

PINK is youthful, fun and exciting, while vibrant pinks have the same high energy as red. Pink is considered the colour of happiness and is often regarded as light-hearted.

7 styles to consider for your wedding bouquet

WHITE projects purity, cleanliness and neutrality. It also indicates a fresh start, innocence and simplicity.

PURPLE balances the stimulation of red with the calmness of blue. With mystical and royal connotations, purple is also a colour favoured by royal types.
