Wedding flowers – whether you are thinking about flowers for the church, flowers for the tables at your reception or the most important flowers of all – your bridal bouquet. The bridal bouquet was originally carried to ward off evil spirits and in some instances to disguise the smell of the bride. But these days because we bath once a day whether we need to or not and the threat of evil spirits has been thwarted thanks to the valiant efforts of the Ghost Busters wedding flowers are now purely decorative and steeped in traditional.
For many women their wedding flowers are just as important (ok maybe a little less important) than the dress and the wedding flowers are brought months in advance, the colours are picked to perfectly accent the pale ivory of the brides classically cut, vintage inspired dress. The soft lavender of the flowers accentuating the slight bluish tinge of the diamonds that rest on her throat; whether the wedding flowers have been chosen because they fit in with the colour scheme and the overall “theme” of the wedding and reception or whether they have been chosen simply because they mean something special to the bride or the couple then that is great to and entirely up to you.
