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. http://openlibrary.org/books/OL7160132M/Language_of_flowers 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.
