Let’s dive into these bright sunflower wedding invitations!
Symbolism of Sunflowers
No matter where you’re from, the lovely sunflower has many symbolic associations. Overall, these representations are largely very positive- just one look at a bright yellow sunflower can lift the spirits, so these depictions can’t be wrong!
In some countries, sunflowers symbolize long life, good luck, and health. In others, they represent loyalty, joy, and limitless faith.
For countries with major harvesting seasons, the sunflower heralds in autumn with its radiant petals and the promise of bountiful crops!
Why are Sunflowers So Popular?
Sunflowers get their name for many reasons, but one of our favorite understandings is that sunflowers turn and face the sun as they grow and develop. Their “sunny disposition” makes this flower an easy favorite for many.
In pop culture, sunflower fields are a huge draw for Instagrammers who are looking for a stunning backdrop for selfies. With their large heads (not the Instagrammers, although actually, maybe) and towering leafy height, sunflowers have a way of reminding us to literally look at the bright side!
When Are Sunflowers In Season?
There are many varieties of sunflowers and many of them tend to bloom during the summer and well into the fall. If you’ve got a summer wedding planned, sunflowers are sure to be abundant (although this does depend on where you are in the world).
That being said, sunflowers are iconic and even if they’re not readily available for your chosen wedding season, there are lots of ways to incorporate them into your wedding decor if your heart is set on it!
