As you try to find the perfect ring for your wedding, you come across a section of flower rings. One of the rings that catches your attention is the lotus flower ring. It becomes one of your wedding ring choices but here is a question: Do you know what the lotus flower symbolizes? In some culture and religions, it represents beauty and spirituality. For Buddhism and Hinduism, it personifies perfection. How about in weddings? One of the popular flowers found in Chinese weddings are lotus and a full bloom of it means a complete reunion. In addition, a blossom on one stem of a lotus or two lotus blooms expresses a shared heart and harmony for both couples.
The color of a lotus has its own meaning too. A white lotus and a pink lotus embodies purity and devotion. Meaning the body is meant for that one partner that person is going to marry. Furthermore, it reminds both partners of hope and strength in their struggles not only as an individual but as a married couple starting a new life together. Meanwhile, a red lotus embodies love and compassion of the heart.
If the bride is pregnant, another meaning can be derived from the lotus flower or a lotus flower ring. During the ancient Egyptian times –no specific date given –pregnant women wore the lotus flower amulets that portrays the goddess of fertility and childbirth Heqet. She was the goddess who brought labor and protection against evil during childbirth.
If you are the groom buying a ring for your partner, it can symbolize some of these traits this person has or what you hope to blossom in the marriage: beauty, grace, faithfulness, patience, love, rising out of struggles and problems, and divine connection.
In modern times, the lotus flowers are usually used in tattoo. It speaks of the possibility of overcoming the trials and struggles faced in life to achieve fulfillment and perfection. Reality is marriage is not always perfect but that does not mean a couple cannot achieve a fulfilling life as a married couple and family.
