Bouquet Styles

The wedding party traditionally carries or wears flowers on the wedding day.  This originally was a pagan tradition which most don’t know.  Bathing was a luxury so the bride carried flowers for fragrance.  Her attendants or bridesmaids carried similar flowers to confuse evil spirits.  Present day flowers are carried out of tradition.  There are many types of bouquets that a bride and her bridal party may carry.
