It is a good idea to leave a swatch of the fabrics you are using in the wedding with your florist. Whites come in shades varying from brilliant pure white to ivory. And red can be anything from an orange to a burgandy. Green can also be hard to match - but remember Mother Nature throws all the colors in together to make her bouquet!
Various meanings have been associated to all types of flowers over the centuries. A white rose doesn't have the same meaning as a red rose, so colors are also an important part in learning the meaning of a certain type of flower. Be sure to check the meanings of flowers before you make your final decision.
