There’s nothing like giving someone a bouquet of flowers to tell them that you love and care deeply for them and if you’ve ever given (or received) one, you know that.
The big question: which flowers should you pick?
In today’s article, we bring you seven of the most romantic flowers you can buy, as well as what they symbolize and which occasions they’re appropriate for. Read on, you love bird!
1. Red Carnations
Beautiful and affordable, red carnations symbolize fascination, love, and pride, and they’re the perfect choice for a young couple starting their love story.
Whether you’re celebrating your first year together or you’re even thinking about proposing, a bouquet of red carnations is one of the most romantic gifts you can give your partner.
When it comes to flowers of love, roses are one of the biggest classics.
If you want to go all out, we say you choose a bouquet of deep red roses. However, other colors work too: pink roses represent gratitude, purple roses symbolize adoration, and orange roses signify passion.
Choose your message and you’ll know which ones to get!
When you think about romantic flower names, “sunflower” isn’t the first one that comes to mind, but hear us out.
These beautiful yellow flowers actually symbolize loyalty, which is one of the main pillars of any long-lasting relationship.
Plus, if you and your partner like to do things differently, something as common as a bouquet of roses won’t be nearly as exciting as one of sunflowers!
If you’re looking for a unique flower that still screams “I love you to the moon and back”, orchids are a perfect choice.
There are actually over 25,000 different species of orchids, so you’ll have plenty to choose from, and many of them look really exotic and sophisticated. Some orchids even produce vanilla beans, so they’re not just beautiful, but also useful. Perfect for the practical couple!
Have you and your partner been together for years and years?
Then a bouquet of camellias is the perfect anniversary gift! Symbolizing longevity, passion, and faithfulness, these Asian flowers come in different colors and they’re the perfect way of saying “I will always love you”.
Delicate and elegant, peonies represent the rebirth of relationships, which makes them the perfect choice of flower if you and your partner went to a bit of a rough patch and now you’re finding the love and romance again.
In some cultures, they symbolize good luck; in others, a happy marriage; and in others, simply love.
Tulips come in several different colors, but there’s none that’s as romantic as the red ones… especially if you’re thinking of making a grand gesture like proposing (or celebration your 11th anniversary)!
Even if you’re just asking someone to be your partner, tulips are still a great choice, as they represent a declaration of love.
