The "humble" carnation is enjoying a huge popularity resurgence just now. Once disregarded as a "cheap" and old-fashioned flower, growers have recently created the most beautiful colours and shapes. I don't think florists ever really fell out with carnations because of their sturdiness and amazingly long vase life and many of them also have a sweet, delicate fragrance that make them lovely to work with. Making a definite comeback in wedding work, carnations look great alongside roses, gypsophila and most of the other popular bridal bouquet flowers. What's not to love?!
