It's Spring Time and that means it is Wedding Season!

In the spirit of the wedding season, we thought we would do an informational post for the Brides to be. We often get questions about the symbolic meanings of wedding flowers. So in an effort to further your wedding flower knowledge we decided to blog about some popular floral selections. We start with the Calla Lily but we will be adding more!

The Calla Lily is a wedding favorite because symbolically it means magnificent beauty! The Calla Lilie's name came from the Greek word Kallos that means beauty. They are one of the most gentle and delicate flowers in appearance. The flower has been associated for elegance and charm for generations. Adding Calla Lilies to the wedding, you create an incomparable elegance, sophistication, and charm to the wedding. They come in a variety of colors including classic white, yellow, orange, red and purple.

The Calla Lily first became popular in the United States after the movie Stage Door was released that starred Katherine Hepburn. "The Calla Lilies are in bloom again. Such a strange flower—suitable to any occasion. I carried them on my wedding day, and now I place them here in memory of something that has died."

If you have a wedding coming up and are interested in adding classic Callas to your wedding arrangements stop in and see us. We would be happy to go over some suggested bouquets and color combinations that will make your special day perfect!
