Lily of the valley bouquet
Lily of the valley is the ultimate wedding flower – delicate, timeless and with a nostalgic fragrance that reminds me of my grandma’s garden. The only downer is that it’s really expensive – a small posy made solely from the flower can cost upwards of £200. The answer is to use it sparingly and perhaps only in your bouquet – that way, the scent will be with you all day. When I got married, my florist suggested combining lily of the valley with other delicate, fragrant blooms such as stephanotis, jasmine and ornithogalum. At £80, it was still expensive but well worth it. The fragrance is unbelievable.
