Origins of Wedding Traditions

Bridal bouquets
The bridal bouquet was originally made of herbs, not flowers. It usually contained herbs which had a strong smell, such as thyme and garlic. The purpose was to frighten away any evil spirits which may be trying to cause trouble or harm to the bride.

Through the years, this ‘fragrant’ bouquet evolved into the lovely (and beautifully scented) floral bouquets that brides carry today.
