Hot Wedding Flower Trend: Using Your State Flower

Personalizing wedding flowers just took a new twist! Brides are incorporating their state flowers in their bouquets and floral decor! [We even have a bride who entered my current contest who’s using her state flower!]

Do you know what your state flower is? Here is a list from the site that will show you the blooms! Use one state flower for the locale of the wedding, or use both your and your groom’s homestate flowers. Or, tribute the state where you went to school, or where you met one another! So many ways to use this trend!
