For example – the Viscaria flower means will you dance with me. The red rose meant, "I love you". The message of the Primrose was, "I can't live without you.". Nowadays, however, that's gone by the wayside and bride choose their flowers mainly based on color.

The first decision you'll have to make regarding flowers is to decide if your wedding be held indoors or outdoors.
