    You are about to make a decision to pick out a design for just the right bridal bouquet for you. Why not add a personal message in the flowers that only you and the groom will know about on your wedding day!

    In the past, flowers were an intimate part of the courtship. A hopeful suitor would bring flowers to the girl he was wooing,the bouquet artfully chosen to deliver hidden messages that he could not say aloud. Many clever young maids indicated their feelings in the choice of flowers they wore in their hair or carried.

    Now, on your wedding day, add a floral message within your bouquet by choosing just the right flowers that will speak for your heart. Think how much fun it will be to share the hidden meanings with your groom!
