We got married in 2010 and as mentioned in my previous posts, I personally took care of the wedding details. One of the unforgettable details about our event was the flowers.
I had one specific request to our florists and the venue coordinators: DO NOT USE ROSES on my wedding day.
They can use any flowers but just not roses. And yes, I received the weird look but they accommodated my request. 🙂 You might be wondering, too.
Here is the thing. I like roses and I think it is a very beautiful kind of flower but I do not like its thorns (and its symbolism). I guess it all boils down to personal preferences.
For my bridal bouquet, I requested (again) to just have cymbidiums and only the bride must have these lovely flowers.
Cymbidiums’ symbolism of virtue and morality is still recognized by enthusiasts, and in Asian cultures it is considered an honor to give or receive the Asian Cymbidium as a gift. As in ancient times, the Asian Cymbidium is considered the gift of respect and friendship.
Am I that weird? I hope not. 🙂
You are my greatest adventure.
