Do you send flowers to a wedding--and where?

Do people send flowers to a wedding? I have a friend (who is originally from Turkey--this is relevant) who was invited to the Florida wedding of her father's friend's daughter (who was born in the U.S. but is of Turkish descent). My friend can't attend, wants to send flowers, and is wondering whether to send them to the church or the reception.

Apparently in Turkey this is a common practice, but when she asked me I couldn't think of any instance here in the States of this happening. In my experience you'd send a gift, but maybe not. My friend looked on a florist's website and there is no "occasion" for "wedding" (there is "thinking of you," however). Any ideas?
Fun fact: the wedding is on the Fourth of July!
