Wedding Flowers and Their Meanings… Anemones

click on the photo to see a bigger picture :)

 

ANEMONE

 

Meaning: Expectation

Colours: Blue, red, pink and white

Best For: Bouquets and arrangements

Scent: None

In Season: August to December (Japanese) and January to May (Wood)

Price Range: Moderate

Floral Fact: Anemones bloom in either single or double blossoms.

 

The name anemone comes from the Greek word for windflower.

According to Greek mythology, the anemone sprang from Aphrodite’s tears as she mourned the death of Adonis.

Thought to bring luck and protect against evil, legend has it that when the anemone closes its petals, it’s a signal that rain is approaching.

Still other mythology connects the anemone to magical fairies, who were believed to sleep under the petals after they closed at sunset. Perhaps it’s because of this magical and prophetic tales that today in the language of flowers, anemones represent anticipation.

Wedding flowers – traditional or artistic?

Bridal bouquet is probably one of the most important decorations on your wedding day and there is so many stunning flowers available and every flower has its’ hidden meaning…

But there is also another option – original, controversial, artistic… in other words – different.

DIY Wedding Gifts

A personalised wedding gift is a fantastic idea! If I got a gift like that, I would just keep it forever…

 

You will need:

40-70 inches of ribbon in various tones, about 2″-3″ in width
Miscellaneous fabrics, such as burlap, knit sweaters, etc…
Twine

 

Here’s how you prepare the gift (the DIY is for the center row image on the left):

  • Cut a couple of pieces of ribbon in 3″-5″ increments, depending upon the desired size of your finished gift. Do the same with fabrics, sweaters and burlap.

 

  • Prepare a big stack, alternating each color and type of material. Tie a very tight knot around the centre of the entire stack (use the twine to do that).

 

  • Cut the ribbon into smaller strips and keep the center uncut. Separate and pull strips apart to make your completed gift!

 

Your fabulous wedding gift is ready! :)

 

(the original idea comes from Summer Watkins at GREY LIKES WEDDINGS and all the images have been taken by JENNY LIU)

 

 

Best wishes,

MayBrides
