Royal wedding flower details

Details are being ironed out as the much-anticipated royal wedding of Britain's Prince William and Kate Middleton approaches.

With the wedding date just weeks away, speculation continues about every facet of the ceremony and celebration. Who will design the dress? What will it look like? How will Kate wear her hair? What kind of flowers will she carry?

There are reports that the flowers at the ceremony alone will cost more than $800,000.

There's been much speculation about the types of spring wedding flowers Middleton will carry down the aisle.

"Brides often have to be gently guided towards the right sort of flowers that will accentuate rather than distract from their gown, yet are bold enough to be seen at a large-scale ceremony - and won't begin to wilt as soon as they are cut," society florist Jane Packer told the Telegraph.

Royal experts say that the bridal bouquet is likely to consist of all white blooms and that most - if not all of them - will have been grown in Britain. The Telegraph reports that there is some speculation that Middleton's bouquet will include some white Fair Trade roses from Kenya, where the couple became engaged.

Experts say that the royal wedding will likely have a big effect on wedding trends going forward. Many summer and fall brides may want to emulate the look of Middleton's wedding flowers.
