Meaningful Herb Bouquets

Picture by the talented Jemma Keech

In all my wedding research I have found an intriguing idea: herb bouquets. This is a not a new idea, in the Victorian era they used different herbs in weddings for symbolic reasons.

Thyme for courage and strength
Lavender for luck and devotion
Rosemary for remembrance
Sage for wisdom and long life. Bonus: Sage is also great for keeping bugs away, and the scent of mint (meaning virtue) can be calming.
Cumin for fidelity
Parsley for festivity

Which would you choose?
I love the smell of rosemary, and sage looks really pretty, so the one above looks perfect!

PS. Here is an overview of more herbs and flowers and their meaning.
