How your horoscope can influence your wedding flower choices

How your horoscope can influence your wedding flower choices

Written by Alex Potter

Not sure which flowers to choose for your wedding day? The answer might lie in the stars, says Alex Potter...


Do you believe in astrology? You might not tell your boss that you’ve based the timing of that new promotional campaign on Mercury being in Taurus but 90% of us know our star signs (compared to only half of us knowing our blood group). He might not admit it to you but chances are your groom reads his horoscope - after all, the majority of men admit to reading their horoscope at least once a month. And half of us believe that people have the characteristics of their star signs, which might explain why the Accounts Manager - an Aries - is so annoyingly energetic on Monday mornings. 

So how about choosing your wedding flowers based on your star signs? After all, unless they are greenhouse-grown, they will have grown outdoors, under the influence of the planets and the constellations...

With that in mind, we've rounded up the best blooms to match your star sign. What if you prefer the flowers for another sign? Well, reading star signs is complex and different astrologers will give you different answers. Or maybe your parents were so excited that they got your date of birth wrong. But whatever you decide, this list may help to inspire you when you come to speak to your florist. Read on to find out which flowers your star sign is associated with!
