What's in that lovely waterfall of white flowers!??

Kate's beautiful royal bouquet is made mostly (from what I can see) of lily-of-the-valley, sprigs of the Queen Victoria's myrtle shrub, white hyacinth and reportedly 'sweet William' in honor of her new husband.

According to the royal press release, "The bouquet is a shield-shaped wired bouquet of myrtle, lily-of-the-valley, sweet William and hyacinth. 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."

What is the flower language of her bouquet?
Sweet William means gallantry, lily-of-the-valley is return of happiness and purity of heart, hyacinth represents constancy, while myrtle is the emblem of marriage and love.

The blooming bouquet was surprisingly small and dainty mirroring the style of her dress and designed with delicate white flowers. I think it echos Kate's dainty, traditional and quaint style. A beautiful bouquet for a beautiful bride.

  1. Love it! I love how simple she let everything be... It was elegant without being extravagent. Can you imagine marrying a prince?

  2. I love it but I don't know, I was probably expecting some huge 21st century wedding and it was very traditional. It was still lovely though.

  3. yes ana, i was surprised too! i thought it would be somewhat a little more modern but I guess they wanted to stay with tradition?

  4. it is beautiful...what a truly beautiful couple


leave some love
