All About Flowers

Seasonal availability of Flowers, the Meaning of Flowers and your Birth Month Flower

The carrying of a floral bouquet by the bride and her bridesmaids is not only a tradition but an important detail in any wedding as this feature is usually tied into the whole theme and feel of the wedding

The colours and type of flower, as well as the style of bouquet, allows the bride to not only express her personality by not only carrying her favourite flowers, but also the way she carries or even wears them, is a huge statement to those attending this special event

In some cases it may even tell a story, like the bride that carried a single red rose, as it was when her new husband gave her a single red rose that she really knew she was in love with him

So when it comes to deciding on the role flowers are going to play in your special day, you need to consider what story you are trying to tell to those attending and ensure when choosing your theme for the day that you consider your floral needs at this point and not as an after thought. It doesn’t matter how big your arrangements are or how many relatives are wearing a corsage, what matters is how they tie into your story
