A spokeswoman for Interflora said: ''This research shows just how important a woman's wedding day is to them."

''Even those who haven't yet got a partner have a clear idea of the type of wedding they would like."

''If you have attended the weddings of close friends and family it's hard not to be inspired and start envisaging how you would like your own big day."
