Wedding Bouquets Inspiration
Brides have been carrying bouquets since the middle ages. Of course back then the gathered bunches of herbs and spices were intended to ward off evil spirits and protect the fragile, innocent bride from bad luck and misfortune.
Happily by Victorian times bouquets had moved on from garlic and dill to include fresh flowers – often made up using the “language of flowers”. Bouquets were gathered from ivy (fidelity), myrtle (passion) and roses (love).
Bouquets remain a special tradition today, with plenty of styles and variations for brides to choose from. You can have anything from cascading waterfall bouquets to sweet, simple hand tied posies. It all depends on the style and theme you envision for your wedding – and ultimately your own sense of style and personality.
