Quite a long list, which is very informative. Thank you for sharing this wonderful compilation!

So interesting to note that 99% of the flowers listed have good, positive and beautiful meanings attached to it that could be actually applied by the soon-to-be married couples on their day to day lives after the big day.

Enjoy your wedding day, use natural flowers, organically-grown if possible, to set the mood and remember to always Go Green!
