It’s that time again, for plenty of floral goodness. This is a continuation of our Floral Love series.

Carnations have long been banished to the filler flower category. But why? Bunched together, carnations can pack major punch. They’re affordable, easy to get, light and airy, and can be the star or costar of your wedding.

Quick facts about this sweetly-scented flower:

  • Available year-round, they are never out of season.
  • Carnations are symbolic of mother’s love.
  • 3 weeks: Length of time carnations can last once cut.

Enjoy the images!
