Wedding Fever

With its ideal weather and lush, natural floral landscapes, it’s no wonder that June weddings seem to be so popular. Have you ever wondered why a June wedding never goes out of style? Where did this tradition come from? Just like the saying “all roads lead to Rome” proclaims, the tradition of a June wedding can also be traced as far back as Ancient Rome. According to Ancient Roman myth, “Juno” was the goddess of weddings, and so, getting married in June was deemed lucky for the bride and groom. A June wedding also meant that if the wife conceived (immediately after the marriage), she would give birth before the next harvest, and thus, be well enough to work the fields come harvest time. With time these reasons, however fabricated they may be, fade into the background and June comes to symbolize romance and new beginnings. There are also an abundance of flowers in season for a June wedding. From alstroemerias to belles of Ireland, calla lilies, daisies, hydrangeas, roses, snapdragons, and sunflowers, you’re sure to find the perfect flowers for your special day. If you’re planning a summer or fall wedding, Carithers Flowers in Atlanta offers more than just [...]

“Every rose is an autograph from the hand of God on his world about us.” - Theodore Parker The last Saturday in May unofficially marks “opening day” of wedding season, where more than 2 million couples get married and collectively spend about $72 billion every year in the United States. We think it's safe to say that wedding season has already started. As the weather warms up, take a stroll through a park or a meandering tour of a garden and you're likely to run into a giggling bridal party, a blushing bride, or a nervous groom. Flowers are one of the main focal points of a wedding. They serve to enhance a beautiful bride as she walks down the aisle, add color and dimension to a table arrangement, and colorfully accessorize a wedding cake. No wedding day is complete until it is solemnized with flowers. Reception centerpieces and ceremony arrangements turn an ordinary room into an extraordinary one. Carithers Flowers in Atlanta offers more than just beautifully designed floral bouquets and gifts.
