Choosing the perfect wedding flowers
Flowers have always been important symbols at weddings. The ancient Greeks were the first people recorded that used flowers at weddings. Victorians assigned meanings to flowers, and brides assembled their bouquets with flowers to send a message on their wedding days.
Today’s bride uses flowers for her bouquet and throughout her event. Flowers are used to decorate the wedding cake, the ceremony site and reception site. Flowers can also be used to help accent your theme — or they can be the wedding theme itself!
When flowers are your wedding theme, you can portray that theme with real blossoms and by personalizing your wedding items with a flower design. Think about having a rose, daisy or calla lily design printed on your invitations, thank you notes, wedding programs, napkins, menu cards, place cards, favors and more to carry your theme through.
