Kate Middleton’s Wedding Flowers

28 Aug

You can use the meanings of flowers to decide on that perfect bouquet for your lover. Or pick out the perfect meaning for your wedding flowers. Princess Kate Middleton did. Kate Middleton’s flowers consisted of myrtle, lily-of-the-valley, sweet William, and hyacinth.  Shane Connolly, who was in charge of the flowers said that the bouquet was meant to mean love, romance, and fidelity.

“One of the things that has been very important to Catherine and to me are the meanings of flowers and the language of flowers,” said Connolly, “We’ve tried, especially in the wedding bouquets, which you’ll see on the day, we’ve tried very much to make beautiful stories.”
