Wedding bouquet in Paris

Carnation (pink) - I'll never forget you
Carnation (purple) - Capriciousness; whimsical; changeable
Carnation (white) - Sweet and lovely; innocence; pure love; woman's good luck gift
Lily (white) - Virginity; purity; majesty; it's heavenly to be with you

The bouquet were genuinely put together at a Flowers Shop in the 6th arrondissement of Paris.

I would highly recommend you have a look at the website of Flower designer, Laura Dowling . She is a specialist in the French approach of flower arrangement and does frequent travels to "L'ecole des Fleurs" Paris, France to study advanced concepts and new trends in French flower design.
She has a project section where she gives you the "ingredients for the making of a few of her delightful flower arrangements.

Laura Dowling named this flower arrangement "Fleurs d'Amour"
