The lemon leaf has round, thick leaves that resemble the shape of lemons. Like the leather fern, it has a long lasting vase life. It can stand alone or be a subtle companion to a beautiful bouquet. Its shiny leaves work well with all flower types and are most fitting in vases as table centerpieces. The lemon leaf is great for adding fullness to floral designs.
Decide on your color scheme: If you have a favorite color, that's what you'll want for your wedding. But if the carpet is hideous in the room, you should probably think about a colors scheme that will help to take the eye off it. Or you may have fallen in love with some dresses for your bridesmaids. Choose your color scheme using any of these sources.
Select your flowers: Many different flowers can give the colors you choose. Will you want roses or carnations, orchids or iris? Your decision will be somewhat influenced by where you live and the season of the year. Lilacs are almost impossible to get (at a price you can afford) in January, so find other flowers that have a similar shade. You may decide to have all roses or an assortment of several varieties. Whatever you choose, make sure the flowers are available in your locale or place a special order for just what you want.
