Flowers to brighten up my frozen existence

In the midst of this crazy whirlwind that I call my life, I have actually managed to plan my wedding pretty thoroughly so far! Most of the important things are booked, and everything is coming together. I'm excited to see it all put together!

This week I went to the florist with my mom to have a consultation and book the flowers. We went to the florist who did my sister's wedding, and Chris sometimes goes there to buy me flowers too. She's amazing and I know that I will be thrilled with the outcome. My bouquet is going to be really vibrant, which I wanted as a contrast to my white dress. I chose 3 main flowers, and put pictures below for you just so you have a visual ;)

I was wondering what the significance of these flowers are, and if they were fitting for a wedding boquet. I knew that yellow roses signified friendship, which fits because Chris is my best friend. I looked up white lilies (which are my favorite) and they signify purity. Now, I'm going with coral gerberas, which are somewhere between red and pink. Red gerberas mean love, passion, and desire, and pink gerberas again mean friendship. So without even knowing I picked good :) I also realized later that every bouquet Chris has ever given me has had lilies, gerberas, or roses. So that has even more significance :)
