I know for some, flowers are flowers are flowers, and that is perfectly fine. But I also know some brides have special stories behind why they picked a certain kind of flower for their bouquet.
For me, I particularly like tiger lilies (hence, the name) since (1) I have always loved lilies since I was a little girl, and (2) the orange color is my subtle homage to Roman culture, which FI and I both studied and is how we met. In Ancient Rome, brides wore an orange veil to symbolize the fire of love.
How about the rest of you? If you do have a story, please share it!
