FLOWERS and weddings go together like a bride and groom. Not only do they add romance and beauty to the special occasion, but they also impart different meanings.
The floral arrangements you choose for your wedding — including bouquets, centrepieces and the flowers that decorate your venue — account for a significant amount of the average wedding budget, so it’s important to think carefully before choosing.
Consider these ideas
White bouquets are a popular traditional choice but more vibrant bouquets add colour to the ensemble and photos.
Vibrant yellows, brilliant oranges and luscious purples are all available.
Muted and romantic combinations of white and pink or white and cream pair better with a classic wedding.
While roses remain hugely popular, lilies, carnations and even gerberas are now common.
Bouquets can be adorned or bound with ribbons, pearls, feathers or diamantes.
Ensure the florist removes any pollen from your bouquet to prevent staining your dress.
Almost anything you picture can be created, including succulents, berries and other ornamental components. The meaning behind the petals: Red and white roses impart love Yellow roses mean friendship Tulips signify passion Orchids embody beauty White lilies portray majesty Daisies signify innocence
