Besides the obvious colourful display and scented aroma we enjoy from beautiful arrays of flowers, there is a deeper meaning to why they are always including on your wedding day.  During the time of the ancient Greeks and Romans, the bride and groom wore garland on their necks to symbolize new life, hope and fertility. Women on the other hand also carried bouquets but both of these were actually made not of flowers but of aromatic bunches of herbs and spices to ward off evil spirits.  No Wedding is complete without flowers, but one should choose their flower arrangements very carefully

The Rose has been used as a metaphor for undying love for Centuries.  The deep Red Rose symbolises the intensity of romantic love while White Roses imply Chastity and virtue.

Lillies are a beautiful and often forgotten flower.  White Lillies signify purity but beware of the orange lily as it signifies desire and passion but also hatred

Tulips Symbolise perfect love. Be careful though, different coloured Tulips have very different meanings.  The Red tulip symbolises undying love, the purple tulip symbolises forever love while the white tulip symbolises one-sided love.
