The Victorian meaning for this flower is "marital happiness," making the dainty white Stephanotis an obvious choice for weddings. Stephanotis is a small white tropical flower that has been a wedding flower favorite for generations. The star-shape, waxy florets actually grow on a flowering vine; each must be individually wired or placed onto a special holder before it can be arranged. In addition to its charming appearance, it is also very fragrant. It is truly amazing how much sweet smell is created and dispersed by such a small flower.
A bouquet of stephanotis blossoms is one of the most traditional a bride can carry, and is a classic choice for boutonnieres, hair flowers, and corsages. Stephanotis is grown in the tropics and imported into mainland USA. It is available year -round, though may require special-ordering.
