Rosemary

Typically reserved for cooking, there’s more you can do with rosemary! This woody plant has fragrant needle-like leaves and tiny white, blue, pink or purple flowers. Fun fact: in English Tudor times, brides gifted rosemary to the groom as a symbol of fidelity.

Magnolia

This elegant flower adds sophistication to any floral design. Its glossy green leaves, creamy color and structured blooms are absolutely gorgeous for wedding decor. Each color has a different meaning: white represents the moon, yellow represents the sun and pink represents friendship and love.

Also known as ‘goat willow,’ this plant adds a unique element to wedding centerpieces and arrangements. Its tree-like branches and small, fuzzy tufts make it look bohemian and rustic. Arrange it alone or add in colorful flowers for a modern design everyone will love!
