The most common meanings for white flowers are purity, perfection, and innocence, reflecting their simple and understated colour. White flowers are a fitting way to celebrate a new baby, especially when paired with pastel flowers in shades like pink, yellow, blue, or lilac.
White flowers can be deeply romantic as well, as they signify pure intentions, devotion, eternal love, harmony, and loyalty. These meanings make them a very popular and traditional choice in wedding bouquets (the fact they often match the dress is definitely a bonus as well!)
White flowers are also well suited for more sombre occasions, as they can symbolise ideas such as reverence, humility, and spirituality, making them a respectful choice for sympathy bouquets. The white lily in particular is a traditional sympathy flower, as it represents rebirth and resurrection.
