THE HISTORY OF WEDDING FLOWERS
Have you ever wondered why brides carry bouquets or where the idea for having flowers at a wedding comes from?
The story goes that brides carried flowers to ward off bad smells, back in the 15th-16th century people didn’t bathe regularly, so brides carried flowers to mask the aroma of body foul odors. Ouch! We are happy that is no longer the case.
These days, the choice of floral arrangements, bridal bouquets, floral centerpieces all help in the creation of a theme or style for a couple’s wedding, for more information on this centuries-old custom check here: weddings.lovetoknow.com/wiki/History of Wedding Flowers
