Flowers and their Meanings

Flowers are the second most beautiful visual aspect of a ceremony - next to the happy couple of course. They can create an illusion, set a mood, or transform
a simple area into something quite splendid. If a religious site is planned for the vows, make sure you check with your contact person about rules regarding
flowers - amounts, placement, fire regulations, etc. Some religious sites request that you leave the flowers as a donation after the ceremony, so you'll want
to know this ahead of time especially if you plan to have the flower arrangements doing double duty at the reception.

Flowers are often used to convey a special message. Listed below are some of the more well known posies and their meanings:
