Wasn't she beautiful? The new Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, was nothing less than we expected---a picture of elegance on her royal wedding day, with a simple bouquet of symbolic flowers.

Although there was speculation about how traditional the bouquet and dress would be for this modern royal, Kate's wedding bouquet was quite conservative with all white flowers symbolic of love and marital bliss.

The wedding bouquet included:

Lily of the Valley -  Return of happiness

Sweet William - Gallantry

Hyacinth – Constancy of love

Ivy -  Fidelity; marriage;  friendship; affection

Myrtle -  The emblem of marriage; love.

Kate Middleton's wedding bouquet also contained acknowledgments to royal weddings before her. The bouquet included stems from a myrtle bush planted on Britain's Isle of Wight by Queen Victoria in 1845, as well as a sprig from a plant grown from the myrtle used in Queen Elizabeth II’s wedding bouquet in 1947.
