And it Begins...

Okay I'm finally starting to think about wedding stuff so be prepared to have a few posts about the things I find. Don't worry, it won't take over the blog, I promise, I just wanted to warn you.

I found this list of flowers and what they mean that I thought was interesting. (But I plan on just using local flowers that are in bloom at the time, so the meaning will be kind of...meaningless.)

Baby’s breath = Everlasting love
Bachelor’s button = Celibacy, delicacy
Calla lily = Magnificent beauty
Carnation (pink) = Woman’s love
Carnation = Pure love
Cornflower = Delicacy

Haha, oops. I was just looking at this list again and saw the "via Style Me Pretty" at the bottom. So much for my suggestion. I have nothing new to offer. :)
