A ‘Vintage’ Flower Makes a Comeback

What classic flower is suddenly trendy at weddings this summer?

The carnation!

You may know it best as the colorful flower in arrangements or in your mom’s prom corsage. But carnations are back, and their colors are starting to pop up in wedding bouquets. Carnations are popular because they come in a rainbow of colors, and each color has a special meaning. For example, white means “pure love,” and red represents deep love and affection. You may want to check meanings before you choose colors; some have negative connotations, and if you’re superstitious, you’ll want to avoid some colors.

What else is great about carnations? They’re affordable, and they look fresh long after they’ve been cut, which make them a great choice for your wedding day.
