There are some flowers that may be beautiful, but have a negative meaning that you might not want to associate with your wedding. In some cases it is just certain colours of one particular flower that have an unfavourable meaning. Of course, if one of these is your favourite flower you may decide to ignore superstition and just choose it anyway.
Try to avoid larkspur, meaning infidelity and lavender, signifying distrust, as these are certainly not emotions you want associated with your wedding. You might also rule out foxglove and yellow lilies, which mean insincerity and falsehood respectively. A Christmas rose suggests scandal, and a marigold depicts grief, so these are also perhaps best avoided.
If you are having a yellow theme tread carefully as yellow carnations show disdain, yellow chrysanthemums signify slighted love, and yellow roses mean jealousy. Be equally careful with a red colour scheme as the meaning of a red carnation is ‘alas my poor heart,’ and red poppies symbolize consolation.
