Is a Bargain a Bargain?

Today there are so many sources of flowers; whether ordering on the internet, direct from the grower (or so it says!), buying at grocery stores, wholesale clubs, or from street vendors, they all seem to offer great bargains!

Who should you trust?

Your wedding flower order is probably the most important and expensive one you will ever place. On your wedding day, will you get what you expected? Will you actually receive the particular color, variety and quality flower you wanted? If you are disappointed, what recourse will you have?

A florist’s reputation is their lifeline, especially when it relates to wedding work. Brides visit many local vendors during the long planning process. Most local wedding vendors are closely linked. All kinds of information is shared...good and bad! Hilda Abbott, owner of an award winning local florist, has been in business specializing in weddings since 1979. She says: “A good florist has an established relationship with deep roots with their flower sources! We have a long term and consistent relationship with our flower brokers who import directly from growers worldwide. Our sources can have a particular flower variety, color and size, grown, cut and/or reserved just for your wedding! The growers fill the broker’s special orders first insuring they get the best product available and in turn you get the best flowers for your wedding.” “What is left goes to the secondary markets, which include the on-line sales, supermarkets and discount stores. As a bride, you’ll spend more time on planning your wedding than any other event in your life, and everything revolves around the flowers! You deserve better than leftovers!” “If budget is an issue with your wedding, the right florist will be interested helping you get the most for your money. Showing you inexpensive alternatives in flower selection and bouquet designs can help you have the wedding of your dreams with out breaking the bank.”

Throwing Rice

One of the oldest wedding traditions, throwing rice is the symbol of fruitfulness and prosperity. Tossing it after the ceremony was believed to bestow fertility upon the bride and groom. Eating rice and other grains was thought to guarantee health, wealth and happiness. Today, rice tossing is replaced by birdseed tossing, because uncooked rice is damaging to birds.


Mystique and romance has surrounded the veil for more than one thousand years. Originally, the veil is thought to have been used to hide the bride from abductors, just as the similar dress of her bridesmaids was meant to do. But a more romantic interpretation evolved later which believed that concealment (as the bride’s face beneath a veil) rendered what was hidden more valuable. Another early interpretation of the veil was that it symbolized youth and virginity.


The wedding ring has traditionally been worn on the third finger of the left hand because it was believed that a vein in this finger ran directly to the heart.
