|Catherine Middleton's Royal Wedding Bouquet|
Bits and pieces about Catherine's bridal bouquet:
According to a statement on the Official Royal Wedding Website, the bouquet is a shield-shaped wired bouquet of myrtle, lily-of-the-valley, sweet William and hyacinth. (Isn't sweet that Catherine actually included "sweet William" blooms into her bouquet? I wish I could find "sweet Randy" blooms for my bouquet too!) The bouquet was designed by Shane Connolly and draws on the traditions of flowers of significance for the Royal Family, the Middleton family and on the Language of Flowers.
Here are flowers' meanings in the bouquet:
Lily-of-the-valley: Return of happiness
Sweet William: Gallantry
Hyacinth: Constancy of love
Ivy: Fidelity; marriage; wedded love; friendship; affection
Myrtle*: The emblem of marriage; love
