Find the most popular flowers

Do you know the names of flowers you want to have at your wedding?

Unless you are a florist, a botanist or a very keen gardener, then you're probably like me when I got married - not knowing a gardenia from a geranium!

Most of us haven't a clue when it comes to flowers, whether it be what they are commonly called, what colors they come in or when they are in season. Especially if you're talking about more exotic flowers rather than common ones like roses or tulips.

And if you go to a florist with just a color scheme in mind then you're a ready target...for gorgeous but expensive wedding flowers.

Here we share with you some of the more popular wedding flowers and their special meaning in terms of the so called "language of flowers..." to help you get started before your florist blinds you with science! And don't worry, you will recognize some of them!
