A Manhattan Florist Shares Meanings Behind Popular Wedding Flowers, Manhattan, New York

Choosing flowers is one of the most important parts of planning a wedding. But did you know wedding flowers can convey hidden meanings? Madison Avenue Florist, a family-owned flower shop in New York City, is known for creating beautiful bouquets and arrangements that will exceed your expectations. Before you choose your blooms, consider their symbolism.

3 Qualities Represented by Wedding Flowers


Baby’s breath and freesia are two wedding flowers that symbolize innocence. You can include baby’s breath in corsages and use freesias as the centerpiece of bouquets for a spring or summer wedding. If you want to signify purity, choose gardenias.


Calla lilies, orchids, roses, and stock flowers symbolize beauty. Roses are the most popular wedding flowers, but orchids also are favored because they come in a wide variety of colors. Stock typically is used as a filler in arrangements. Calla lilies are magnificent tropical flowers you’ll find at almost every wedding.


Chrysanthemums and lilies stand for truth. Each flower comes in a range of colors and is available year-round. Lilies are fragrant flowers, while chrysanthemums don’t have a scent.


Lilies of the valley have bell-shaped blossoms and are traditional wedding flowers, in part because they represent happiness. But if it’s marital bliss you’re after, include stephanotis. This fragrant, trumpet-shaped flower often is used in bouquets and arrangements and is available year-round.

If you need help selecting the right flowers for your wedding, Madison Avenue Florist is ready to design gorgeous bouquets, corsages, and table arrangements for your big day.
