The Importance of Floral Bouquets in Graduation Ceremonies by Adele Rae Florists

Floral bouquets are often used in graduation ceremonies as a symbol of achievement, growth and accomplishment. They can represent the start of a new chapter in life. The use of floral bouquets in graduation ceremonies can be traced to the Ancient Greece, where the use of laurel wreaths were used by scholars and poets to honour their achievements.

If you are choosing a floral bouquet for your daughter or son's graduation, we recommend selecting a design in bright colours, like yellow, blue, pinks, and purples, as these colours evoke joy and enthusiasm. Try to incorporate flowers that hold a personal significance to the graduate, it will mean a lot for her/him.

As well we recommend not to buy a very large bouquet, instead try a small to medium size that can easily be hold by the graduate, big bouquets are heavy and will gain too much attention for the pictures. If your graduate doesn't like to carry a bouquet, then the use of wrist corsages or pinned boutonnieres, are very popular, they are small and easy to use.
