Traditionally, a bride would remove one flower from her bouquet and pin it to her groom’s lapel as a symbol of her love.
Today, when the bride is making her floral selections for the wedding with her florist, she should select one flower from her bouquet for the groom’s boutonniere. A smaller flower will suit the groom much more appropriately than a larger flower.
Interesting, I didn’t know that. I will have to keep that in mind when recommending wedding bouquets to brides.
