Flowers always have a special and meaningful significance at weddings, but where did the trend, fashion and love for floral decor come from? Way back when, in the nineteenth century it was Queen Victoria who married Prince Albert of Saxony and she introduced floral decor at her wedding. As she maintained the longest serving reign than any other female British Monarch, she of course inspired and helped flowers become fashionable.
Different flowers, colours, scents, arrangements and even the season have a different meaning and romantic, magical connotation that influence the selection of flowers at weddings. If you think about it, they are the fourth detail of planning a wedding that is organised, and that makes them a priority!
