 A COUNTY IN BLOOM
 “When you have only two pennies left in the world, buy a loaf of bread
 with one, and a flower with the other. The bread will give you life, and
 the flower, a reason for living” Chinese Proverb

 This is probably a philosophy many florists share, so who better to ask to help bring together a look for your perfect day.

 As with all aspects of organising a wedding there are so many options; styles, colours, varieties and sometimes it can feel
 rather mind blowing, especially if you don’t know your peonies from your petunias. A skilled wedding florist will guide
 you through your choices to make sure you get the very best effect within your budget.

symbols                                 AND MEANINGS
Weddings are occasions full of tradition and symbolism, but do you know
where some of the popular traditions actually come from?



“
Something old, something new,
something borrowed, something blue
and a silver sixpence in her shoe.
Something Old: This represents the link with the
bride's family and the past – a common solution is
                                                             ”
for a bride to wear a piece of family jewellery or
the garter of a married woman in the family.

Something New: Represents good fortune and
success in the bride's new life. This is usually the
wedding dress.

Something Borrowed: To remind the bride that
friends and family will be there for her when help is
needed. This might be something like a lace
handkerchief or an item of jewellery.

Something Blue: Symbolises faithfulness and loyalty
and is thought to date back to biblical times when
blue represented purity. Frequently the bride has a
blue garter or a small blue ribbon sewn into the
inside of her dress.

A silver sixpence in her shoe:
This is to wish the bride both financial wealth
and happiness.



               Thank you so much for the
          wonderful ceremony, the words were
           lovely – not a dry eye in the house,
                we had a wonderful day.

Rings
In ancient times, engagement rings served as a
partial payment for the right to court a bride.
The significance of the third finger of the left
hand stems from the ancient Egyptian belief
that the ring finger follows the 'vena amoris',
the vein that leads directly to the heart.
If the ring is dropped at the ceremony this is
believed to shake out the evil spirits.

Where to stand
The bride stands on the left of the groom during the marriage ceremony to
allow his sword arm to be free ready to fight off any other man who may want
her for his bride. It is believed the father walks in with the bride on his right arm
as nothing should stand between true love.

Dress
The tradition of wearing a white wedding dress gained popularity in the
Victorian Age when Queen Victoria wore a beautiful white dress
to marry Albert, which started a world wide trend.
In some countries it is considered lucky if a bride
finds a spider in her wedding dress!

Wedding veil
The veil is worn in order to ward off evil spirits.

The time to get married
The couple should exchange vows as the minute hand of the clock is
upwards and 'ascending towards heaven'.

Seeing the bride
It is considered good luck for the groom not to see the dress before
the day, and luckier still if he does not glance at the dress as the bride
walks down the aisle.

Confetti
Rose petals or paper have replaced rice or grain in modern times,
the rice was thrown to encourage fertility.

Carrying the bride over the threshold
This protects her from any evil spirits that may be lurking in
the new home. It is also believed to bring good fortune
and stops the bride from stepping into the
new home left foot first which is considered
to be unlucky.

Throwing the bouquet
The bride should throw her bouquet over
her shoulder into a crowd of all unmarried
ladies. Whoever catches it is said to be the
next one to be married. Similarly the groom
should remove the bride's garter and do the
same for the single men!
