I loved Kate's bouquet. Small and understated, it complemented her dress but did not take away from her look. The flowers in the bouquet were lily-of-the-valley, hyacinth, myrtle, ivy and a wonderful nod to her new husband, sweet william.
The Official Royal Wedding Website has released the meaning of each flower. What a lovely thing to consider including in your wedding program for your guests to know what is in your bouquet and the meaning of each flower.
The flowers’ meanings in the bouquet are:
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.
Catherine is expected to leave her bouquet on the grave of the First World War soldier, a tradition started by the Queen Mother in 1923.
