Royal Wedding Countdown (7 days): The Language of Flowers

The BIG Countdown!
3 days until I leave for London, 7 days until the Big Day!

Much like the dress designer, the florist is also a big secret!

We've seen on the royal website that Kate is following the Language of Flowers in selecting flowers for the wedding cake....so I would like to think she is probably doing the same for her personal flowers.

The Language of Flowers is from Victorian times, and is a way to express your emotions in a coded way when you gave someone a lovely bouquet.

Apparently the couple has chosen the following flowers for their cake:
Lily of the Valley
Bridal Rose- for happiness
Oak and Acorn - strength and endurance
Lily of the Valley - Sweetness and Humility

Plus the 4 National flowers:
Shamrock for Ireland
Thistle for Scotland
English Rose

For Kate's bouquet, I could imagine a beautiful white bouquet with lily of the valley, a variety of English Roses, and gardenias to make a lovely English garden bouquet that smells amazing!

I'm thinking that Simon Lycett (who did Prince Charles and Camille's flowers will have a part to play), but, it's really anyone's guess!
