Planning a wedding is stressful enough without having to figure out the difference between a boutonnière and a buttonhole (hint: there is none), or a trailing and a teardrop bouquet. To simplify things, we’ve created a glossary with all the terms you might hear or read in your research and wedding flower planning.
Our guide is rather extensive, there is no need to remember everything on the list. Often more than not your florist will understand what you mean from a general description. And of course, if you’ve come across a term that’s not on the list please leave a comment and we will define it for you and add it to the list.READ MORE
