1920’s Style Wedding Flowers

‘Everything old is new again’ is still one of the hottest wedding trends around. Nostalgia over beautiful black and white photos of our grandparent’s (or great grandparent’s) wedding day only adds to the inspiration for wedding flowers and theming.

If you are a fan of the fabulous roaring 20’s era and considering incorporating 1920’s style wedding flowers, take a look at some of these beautiful wedding bouquets, old and new, below for inspiration.

Something Old, Something New

Roses are a clear trend for 1920’s style wedding flowers, as are Asiatic lilies and calla lilies. A large number of wedding bouquets are ‘super sized’ and ‘grand’, taking centre stage. Fine, voluminous strands of foliage such as fern and ivy, flow to the ground, as do multitudes of cascading ribbon strands with dainty flowers tied onto them. And the shape – wide, oblong bouquets dripping long tendrils of foliage from each end, rather than from the centre, that is typical of contemporary wedding bouquets. Alternatively, flat-backed sheafs (particularly the art deco favourite, lilies) show prominence, resting on the crook of a bride’s arm.

Something Borrowed, Something Blue

Contemporary, 1920’s inspired wedding bouquets are so hot right now. They may not all display the grandiose size of the original styles, and the trailing ribbons with flowers tied in them hasn’t really been taken up, but the wide, oblong shape and loose, wild, foliage filled bouquets are super popular. Wedding bouquets with splash of drama and a touch of the avant-garde express a glorious and stunning modern-day take on a classic era.

Zodiac Spring Flower Meanings

Flowers are the music of the ground.
From earth’s lips, spoken with sound.
Edwin Curran

Born in the months of spring? The Chinese zodiac flower symbols for September to November reveal an insight into a ‘typical’ personality of one born during these months. Can you relate to the personality profiles described below? *Extract from ‘What’s your Sign?’

Morning Glory

“I bring you clarity.”
August 22 – September 22

morning-glory-flower

Morning glory zodiac flower signs are thoughtful and reflective. You tend to think and plan first before you take any action. You are organized and very observant. You have a natural eye for detail, and can be very analytical. You love to help people, and often use your organization skills to help others who struggle in “getting their act together.” You bloom beautifully right where you are planted, and you have a neat way of making things right and tidy. People come to you for guidance and healing.

Rose

“I will balance you in my beauty.”
September 23 – October 22

pink-roses

The rose zodiac flower sign exposes the truth in all things. If you have this flower sign you have a unique ability to see the hidden meanings in things and expose the underlying evidence for what it is. You have an eye for classic beauty, and you love to surround yourself with beautiful things too. You are attracted to philosophy, poetry and art. Because you see the beauty and truth in all things, you do not tolerate injustice or cruelty. You are most happy when you are with friends and family – taking a walk and enjoying nature.

Chrysanthemum

“My mysteries are forever unfolding.”
October 23 – November 21

chrysanthemum

You have many layers to you, and just as soon as someone thinks they have you identified, you pop out with another blossom of surprises. You like clarity and honesty in all things. In fact, when situations are murky or unhealthy you are the perfect sign to come in and clear the air or heal the situation. You are focused and tend to be serious in your emotions, but you are very intuitive and help others identify areas they need to work on for their own emotional growth. You are active and amorous with no end to suitors.

Narcissus

“Escape into my dreamy depth.”
November 22 – December 21

narcissus

Narcissus zodiac flower signs can be very influential and enjoy sharing their philosophical ideas with others. You are direct, to the point, trustworthy and honest. You are naturally wise, and you also are gifted with good luck. You come on strong, but have a sensitive side you don’t share with too many people. You have an active imagination and love to dream the days away.
