The reason is that there are no instructions given by the experts and secondly, the availability of a huge variety makes the situation even more confusing. Flowers have been the part of these events for a long time, but with the evolution that traditions have witnessed, it has been observed that different flowers are used keeping different events in mind. Some details regarding the last sentence are discussed in the following paragraphs.

Single blooms or stems
