Advice about flowers and weddings
If you are an invited guest (men and women), flowers always are appreciated, especially if you can’t attend the wedding. Flowers can be sent to the home or wedding site.

White flowers for weddings used to be almost obligatory, and white calla lilies are still a great favorite. However, many brides choose colored flowers for weddings to complement the bridesmaids’ dresses as well as the general wedding color scheme. We love roses, which are sometimes called the “classic” wedding flower, and orchids.
It is recommended that you take a sample of the bride’s dress to the florist. A professional florist will be able to match colors. One authority points out that even white flowers can differ in shade and intensity. Also ask the florist to recommend the best possible shapes for the flowers.
