Birth Flower from January to December


Flowers were used for communicating long before instant messaging, emails, and phone calls became our mediums of communication! After the rise of floriography which is the study of flower language back in the 18th and 19th centuries, flowers started dominating everybody's lives- from day-to-day functions to special occasions. Sending or receiving flowers has always been considered a special way of communication. Especially today when conveying your thoughts has become so much easier, flower-based communications can find a special corner in the most beautiful and important day of your life- your wedding day. From the statement-making wedding flower arrangements hanging from the ceiling to the ever-gorgeous blooming bridal hairstyles, wedding flower choices are an important part of your wedding planning. But what if we tell you that you have a birth flower based on the month you are born in? Wedding flowers based on the birth months of the wedding couple can go a long way to speak about their personalities and make the wedding day even more special. 


Choosing your wedding flowers can be a time taking and difficult process. With the countless options available in the market and endless Pinterest inspirations, selecting everything from wedding altar flowers to the reception table centerpiece arrangements can be a little overwhelming. Hence instead of packing random wedding flowers, you can let your birth flower dictate your wedding flower decisions. The symbolic birth flowers come in a wide range of colors and have different meanings. The history of birth month flowers goes back to ancient Rome when birthdays were first celebrated and the altars of Roman Gods were gorgeously decorated with flowers during these birthday celebrations. Whether you are considering getting a floral arch for your wedding vows or looking to go for a birth flower-inspired bridal bouquet arrangement, there are many ways to deck up your wedding day with the choice of your birth flower. There is at least one flower that is associated with each month of the year, making it the ideal way to help give your floral choices more significance. 


Several months, including January, April, and August, have two flowers, despite the fact that not every birth month does. The pair of flowers typically have two very distinct meanings that may or may not be related to the particular time of year, though there isn't always a documented explanation for this. Let us find out your birth flower based on the month in which you were born.
