I picked flowers because I loved them and thought they were beautiful, not because of what they meant nearly 200 years ago.

I think it’s a fun layer of meaning to add, but didn’t choose it based on this. Since it’s a “dead language” so to speak (aka nobody else would know what it meant) there didn’t seem much point spending energy on it.

I give a floriography for each event to every couple who works with me as a fun little additional gift. I have a variety of sources and only include the good flower meanings. 😉 You can actually view the Kate Greenaway book online for free, as it’s in the Open Library Project. One couple even asked me to design their flowers specifically around the flower meanings; that was a fun challenge!

I chose flowers that were appropriate for the season and that matched my colors.
