When it came to her bridal bouquet, Middleton, 29, enlisted designer Shane Connolly, the florist who decked out their Westminster Abbey venue with eight maple trees.
Comprised of a shield-shaped wired bouquet of myrtle, lily-of-the-valley and hyacinth, the bouquet "draws on the traditions of flowers of significance for the Royal Family, the Middleton family and on the Language of Flowers," according to a statement released on the Official Royal Wedding Web site.
As a nod to her new husband, Middleton included 'sweet William' blooms. Keeping with royal tradition, stems from a myrtle planted by Queen Victoria in 1845 were also added.
Middleton's bouquet was a stark contrast to that of the late Princess Diana, William's mother. For her 1981 nuptials to Prince Charles, Diana selected a cascading arrangement of three orchid varities.
After celebrating with her new husband Friday, Middleton is expected to leave her bouquet on the grave of the First World War soldier, a tradition started by the Queen Mother in 1923.
