Take a look below for a list of months, their corresponding birth flowers, and the significance each blossom holds.
1. January – Carnation. The feathery petals of the carnation are meant to symbolize pride, beauty and devoted love, ideals which a bride-to-be may keep close to her heart.
2. February – Violet. Purple flowers are said to represent modesty, faithfulness, valor and wisdom – important virtues in a marriage.
3. March – Daffodil. As one of the chief signs of the coming of spring, daffodils have been prized for centuries for their unique shape and vibrant color. As the universal sign of rebirth and new beginnings, they remain the ideal choice for a spring ceremony.
4. April – Daisy. Daisies symbolize innocence, youth and purity, much like a bride-to-be.
5. May – Lily. Lilies have been revered since the reign of the ancient Greeks, representing purity of heart, honor and humility. These blossoms are ideal for the humblest of brides.
