GinaGood morning and happy Royal Wedding Day! If you are not much of a morning person, like moi, then chances are you also didn't tune in for the marriage festivities. (The procession aired 6 a.m. my time. Yuck!) However, that doesn't detract from my interest in this royal affair—or my interest in Kate Middleton's gorgeous bouquet.

Compared to Princess Diana's exaggerated arrangement, Kate's bouquet is elegantly understated. It comprises of myrtle, lily-of-the-valley, sweet William and hyacinth. Shane Connolly, the London-based floral designer for the event, says his floral scheme plays tribute to the Language of Flowers

Myrtle is a symbol of love, passion and marriage; the ancient emblem of Venus.

Lily-of-the-valley is a symbol of sweetness and the return to happiness
