Ever Wonder Why Brides Carry a Bouquet?

October 13, 2016

 

Before the use of flowers in the bridal bouquet, women carried aromatic bunches of garlic, herbs, and grains to 1. Cover up odor (because they used to bathe a LOT less back then) and 2. to drive evil spirits away as they walked down the aisle. Over time, these were replaced with flowers, symbolizing fertility and everlasting love. 💏❤️  Specific flowers have special meanings in many cultures. In Hawaii, the bride and groom wear leis; newlyweds in India don floral headdresses.
