Here's a bit a fun history:
A sprig of myrtle, from the bush grown from the original myrtle in Queen Victoria's wedding bouquet, is traditional included in royal wedding bouquets.

It's so hard to guess what kind of flowers she'll use because in a lot of ways or down-to-earth'ness goes a bit agains the whole excess of weddings.

But, I do know that she's stylish and since feathers are such a popular thing to include in bouquets I'm going to guess there will be some of those.
