The Meaning of Flowers for Married Couples

Marriage is a commitment between two adults who love one another and have promised to do so for the rest of their lives. It is a band of love and trust – which often takes a lot of hard work throughout the years. Many married couples keep their relationship alive by the use of romantic gestures and getaways.

One of the most popular gestures many married couples use is that of flowers. Flowers can mean so much to so many people due to their hidden meanings and beauty. As a result, many husbands choose to purchase a beautiful bouquet of flowers for their beloved wife.

Flowers act as a token of your love, devotion and longing for that special person and are therefore ideal for married couples. However, when choosing the right flower for your wife, you should always consider what message it sends to her. Women have a talent for reading between the lines – so be sure to buy the right flower for the right occasion.

Here is a guide to help you choose the right flower for your wife:

Flower Meaning
Acacia Concealed and chaste love
Alyssum Wealth beyond beauty
Ambrosia Love is reciprocated
Balsam Ardent love
Bamboo Strength and loyalty
Bugle Lovable heart
Cactus Endurance and warmth
Calla Lily Magnificent beauty
Pink Camellia Longing for you
Daisy Loyal love
Honeysuckle Bonds of love
Hosta Devotion
Orange blossoms Eternal love and marriage
Orchid Rare beauty and love
Purple violet Thoughts of you

Whilst red roses are extremely popular when it comes to gifting flowers to a loved one – when you are married, there are a range of different flowers to choose from with such interesting meanings. However, there is the option to mix roses with tulips in order to add another layer of meaning to your beautiful bouquet.

It is important to find out what flowers your wife likes whilst also doing a bit of research into what different flowers mean. Flowers have had their own language and meanings since the Victorian times, so there is plenty of information out there for you to get your hands on.

It is also worth getting your loved one something a little different to normal. If you always go for a bunch of carnations – try something she won’t expect. This will ensure your wife knows that you put that extra bit of thought into the present.
