Lilacs are extra special to me because they played a role in one of the most important days in my life. On my wedding day 6 years ago I vividly remember walking along a lilac lined pathway with butterflies floating past as I walked towards my husband in my wedding gown for the first time. Every year when the lilacs bloom I’m taken back to this moment of sheer joy.
Many flowers have been associated with different meanings and after a quick google search I found that purple lilacs symbolize the first emotions of love. I feel like this description fits the flower perfectly! Bringing us to today (6 years after my wedding day!) my family chose to use lilacs as a centrepiece for all the tables at my baby shower. The symbolism was once again perfect as I have just begun to fall in love with my little girl.
Today’s outfit is actually the one I wore to my baby shower. I love the fluttery sleeves and the asymmetrical ruffles along the bottom half of the dress. For such a beautiful dress I’m surprised I found it for such an amazing price. It was only $40 at Forever 21!
One day I hope to line my driveway with lilac trees of my own. For me, they truly are an extra special flower! What about you? Are there any flowers that have a special meaning to you? I’d love to hear what flowers have significance in your life! Leave a comment below and let me know!
