The history of wreaths and their symbolic meaning go hand-in-hand with romance and wedding wreaths.
In marriage, you exchange wedding rings. Which themselves look like miniature traditional wreaths, the same circular shape of course.
Introduced by the Greeks and continued by the Romans, a wreath (also called a crown) was worn upon the head to represent victory, power, honour and joy. Winners in the Olympics, victorious military personnel, poets and musicians all wore the crown, a testament to creativity and achievement.
In the Roman era, women wore flower wreaths, becoming symbolic with beauty and fashion. In medieval times, they wore rose chaplets / flower wreaths on their wedding day and during other celebrations and festivals.
In Christianity, a wreath represents the resurrection of Christ and therefore eternal life. By getting married, you’re dedicating your eternal life to your partner.
Wedding wreaths can have multiple roles to play on your special day. Hang one up or place one on a table as the centerpiece, the showstopper.
See the shortlist of our favourite wedding wreaths, a beautiful mixture of rustic and floral decoration.
