• Julia Ward Howe wrote the Battle Hymm of the Republic and was a staunch fighter for women’s rights. She staged an unusual protest for peace in Boston, by celebrating a special day for mothers.

WEDDINGS STILL GOING STRONG IN A DOWN ECONOMY


According to the Perfect Wedding Guide a downturn in the economy won’t stop the bride to be! 

Even though the economy has influenced spending habits slightly, the wedding industry is strong!  Wedding experts predict a 9.5% increase in the number of weddings over the next 12 years. 

Even though the economy has influenced spending habits slightly, the wedding industry is strong!  Wedding experts predict a 9.5% increase in the number of weddings over the next 12 years. 

 

However, Brides are much more price concious than ever.  The wedding gown is a perfect example of what I mean. My last 3 Brides-to-be shared with me that they looked for “bargains” when it came to major purchases such as their wedding gowns.

Although they may have wanted designer gowns, they opted for “off the rack,” or discounted gowns. One bride found the gown she wanted at a local salon and then searched online until she found it for less money and quicker delivery.  Another bride waited until a local bridal store was having a big sale, lined up outside the store until it opened and then found the “almost perfect dress.” Although she said it wasn’t her first choice, she was happy with her selection because it cost a fraction of what she would have paid 2 years ago.

And the third bride told me she looked online at eBay. She found the perfect gown customized to her size and she got it in 5 weeks time (from China). I told her my eBay story about how I too found the perfect gown from China. The shipping cost more than the dress! That was in 2007. I got the perfect gown to go with the perfect husband! 

I asked my brides why they chose Eden Florist for their wedding flowers and they each said because they had been recommended, saw my work and knew we wouldn’t overcharge them because it was a wedding.  In fact, one bride came from Palm Beach to order her flowers because she told me her florist wanted about 25% more than I did for basically the same things.

Meaning of Flowers – The Rose


Rose ~ The Flower of Love

Botanical Name ~ Roseceae “Rosa” Family

 

White ~ I am worthy of you

Pale Pink ~ Innocence

Hot Pink ~ Infatuation

Red ~ Love, Passion

Yellow ~ Friendship, Honor

Peach ~ Beauty, Grace

 

One of the oldest flowers known to mankind, and perhaps the most popular,

the rose represents love, magic, hope and the mystery of life.

 

Nebuchadnezzarused them to adorn his palace. In Persia, they were grown for the perfume oil,

and the petals filled the Sultan’s mattress. In Kashmir, the Emperors cultivated

elaborate rose gardens and the roses were strewn in the river to welcome them

home.

 

Emperors filled their sitting baths and fountains with rose-water and

sat on carpets of rose petals. The Greeks associated the rose with the blood of

Aphrodites (the Goddess of Love) beloved Adonis. The Roman’s used roses in

feasts and orgies. From an image of Pagan love, the rose was transformed into

an emblem of Christian spiritual love connected with the Virgin Mary, with

Christ’s blood and with the Crown of Thorns.

 

The rose was created by Chloris, the Greek Goddess of Flowers, out of the

lifeless body of a nymph found one day in a clearing in the woods. Asking

for Aphrodite’s help, she gave the nymph beauty, Dionysus (the God of Wine)

gave her a sweet scent, and the three Graces gave her joy, charm and

brightness. Zephyr (the West Wind) blew the clouds away so that Apollo

(The Sun God) could shine upon her and make the flower bloom. The rose

was born and crowned the “Queen of All Flowers.”
