Have you ever wondered what is it about a flower that makes you pick it? One would never actually think that there is TRUE meaning behind the unique petal shapes and beautiful colors … but there is! In fact, these beautiful blossoms have become quite the essential part of a wedding or special occasion – and the reason why our events turn out so stunning.
Even florists have a very discreet way of knowing just what flowers to put in your arrangement by asking one simple question — “whats the occasion?”And based on this answer alone, they can conjur up an arrangement that is guaranteed to add more meaning to your day.
I have listed some of the common flowers that florists use when putting together an arrangement based on the occasion. So the next time you ask for flowers, you can pick those that symbolize what you want your event/occasion to showcase.
