Did you know that in ancient times, the bouquet had it beginnings not as a collection of flowers, but garlic, herbs, and spices? The strong smells were believed to have mystical powers and could ward off evil spirits. (Aren’t you glad you don’t live in ancient times?) It wasn’t until Queen Victoria married Prince Albert that a new tradition of carrying flowers down the aisle was born.
Typically you will find vases overflowing with fresh blooms everywhere at a wedding, but none are as important or crucial as the bride’s bouquet. Check out these fun bouquets, each as unique as the bride that carried them (and each filled with magic for the girl who caught them!)
By far, the most popular wedding flower is the rose. For centuries, it has been a symbol of love and beauty. Depending on what you dream of for your big day, you can stick with an oh-so-romantic bouquet made up mostly of these delicate beauties, or you can mix and match them with other flower favorites. If you want to break outside the box, there are limitless possibilities for bridal bouquets that you can create with any flower you want! The sky is the limit for your special day.
I can practically smell these just looking at them! Aren’t they gorgeous?
