We always knew that our sign gives us characteristics of who we are as individuals, but what about your birth flowers?

As floral designers, we love incorporating your birth flower into special occasion floral arrangements and floral bouquets.

We think a wedding theme designed with birth flowers of the bride and groom is a thoughtful meaningful way to merge two lovers in the florals for your big day.  Each flower has unique characteristics.  What do you think your birth flower says about you?
