I'm getting married next summer, and my cousin mentioned that my bridal bouquet should have certain flowers in it because of their meaning. She said that the florist would know which flowers are best. I called the florist, but they only mentioned what was popular for bridal bouquets, and stated that it was really up to me and what I wanted. Is my cousin mistaken?
Different flowers and their various colors do have different meanings. Your florist was correct in stating that it's up to you to decide on the bouquet. Most of the meanings are positive, so choose flowers that you prefer for their beauty, not necessarily for their meaning. For a list of the meaning of different flowers, click below:
