Did you know at a traditional Hawaiian wedding, the flowers hold a great significance. The traditional Hawaiian flower lei (traditionally made out of flowers like Orchids, Carnations and Plumerias) represent and act as a symbol of love and respect. Not only are they worn by the bride and groom, but also by all members of the wedding party. There’s usually a traditional lei exchange between the bride and the groom at the beginning of the wedding ceremony. Hawaiian’s believe that the beauty and significance of each individual flower is not lost when it becomes a part of a lei, but it becomes stronger and brighter because of the strength of their bond. The lei is also seen in the same significance as we see a wedding ring, an unbroken circle that represents the bride and grooms eternal and never ending commitment and love for one another.
