Blogmas Day 13- Wedding Flower Meanings




Is a flower just a flower or is there more to it than that? In Victorian times lovers exchanged love letters for ‘The Language of flowers’ each flower and sometimes flower combination has a meaning. I thought it would be interesting to look at the flowers I would like in my Wedding and see what their meanings are:-
