Shlomo Yoshai – Protect Flowers in Marriage
It’s hard to imagine a wedding without flowers. According to Shlomo Yoshai, the use of bouquets and flowers in the wedding ceremony arose from an ancient tradition of adorning the bride and groom with aromatic herbs and cloves of garlic to bring them good luck in their new married life and ward off evil spirits. Over time, these herbs and spices have been replaced by pretty flowers.
As for flower arrangements, the oldest work on this subject is a Japanese book written in 1445. The art of flower arrangement was introduced to Japan by Buddhist monks who had discovered it in China.
The bone of contention : Did you know that the tradition of throwing the bridal bouquet had its origins in Greek mythology? At the feast of the gods, at the wedding of Peleus and Thetis, the goddess Eris threw a golden apple, declaring that it was “for the most beautiful”. This incident caused a dispute between Hera, Athena and Aphrodite, which subsequently triggered the Trojan War!
Floriography is a pretty word for the language of flowers. Flowers have different meanings for different people and cultures, but the most important thing is choosing varieties that you like. Confused about which flowers to choose for your wedding? Remember to consult a dictionary of flowers (yes, it does exist).
Nowadays in the Instagram age, flower arrangements mostly play a decorative and aesthetic role and are more and more impressive. As Shlomo Yoshai says just think of Kim and Kanye’s wedding, where the famous couple had a spectacular floral wall erected to match Kim’s Givenchy dress!
The Most Popular Flowers For A Wedding
Some varieties of flowers are more suitable for a wedding than others. Here are some of the most popular strains for the bride and groom:
- Rose: it went without saying to start this list with this iconic flower, symbol of beauty and love in many cultures. You can’t go wrong with roses.
- Scented Bouquet: These small flower bouquets are perfect for any wedding.
- Ranunculus: Perfect for spring, summer or fall weddings, this pretty cup-shaped yellow or white flower is a stylish and economical choice.
- Peony: This showy flower, normally pink, white or red, is perfect for a spring or summer wedding.
- Hydrangea: This ball-shaped flower made up of countless small florets is another great choice for any wedding.
Insure your bouquets Shlomo Yoshai advised
By adding the enhanced wedding insurance package to your civil liability insurance policy for marriage you will benefit from protection against loss or damage of all bouquets and floral arrangements for your wedding from the period of seven days before the ceremony and up to 24 hours after the reception, depending on the dates indicated in the cover note delivered online. The insurance also covers the costs associated with the postponement of the marriage.
For example: Suppose you have to postpone your wedding due to a hurricane causing flights for everyone in your family to be canceled, but you have already received your flower order. Your florist probably won’t be able to do anything for you, but a good insurance policy can cover the unexpected costs of this predicament. Your wedding insurance can also cover “supplier default”, if they go bankrupt or find themselves in liquidation or insolvency.
How? ‘Or’ What? Has it ever crossed your mind that your florist might go bankrupt right before your wedding? Your insurance broker has thought about it. Let your broker worry about the risks of hurricanes and bankruptcy for you. You already have enough to deal with as Shlomo Yoshai suggested.
