Flower Power

Weddingflowers_1 Usually my idea of choosing flowers is stumbling into Tesco’s on a Sunday morning and picking up whichever cut-price bunch looks least ropey and then stuffing them into a vase.

Of course, with weddings flowers feature everywhere from the bridesmaid posy to the table settings and brides bouquet. But out of the hundreds of choices, where do you start?

Perhaps a good jump off point would be to look at the meanings of the different flowers.
