Weddings are so beautifully filled with Wedding Symbolism, from the bride’s gown to her veil to the Language of Flowers originating in Victorian times, giving meaning to so many different types and colors of flowers. And it’s no wonder that we take symbolic meaning from long-ago lore to add a little more sweetness and meaning to our Wedding celebrations today.

An adorable bee illustration on your favor tag brings in a special layer of meaning, and if you think about the behavior, community and social habits of bees, you’ll also find pleasing messages about your own nearest and dearest loved ones.

There is also symbolism in the beehive itself. Hives are very symbolic, made of tightly-packed cells, each in the shape of a hexagon. Hexagons have six sides, and the number six is symbolic of love (the goddess Venus is commonly connected with the symbolism of the number six,) union, balance and communication.
