What are some of the most beautiful wedding flower traditions to inspire you when planning your own Big Day? We have gathered them right below – so read on and find out more.
- In Indian weddings, the brother of the groom sprinkles flowers over the newlyweds at the end of the ceremony. Not only does this look awe-inspiring, but it is also believed to ward off bad spirits too.
- Ancient Roman brides also wanted to keep evil spirits at bay. To do this, they carried bunches of herbs with them. The herbs were also believed to symbolize fertility and loyalty.
- In England, during the Tudor Era, brides carried marigolds that had been previously dipped in rosewater. Afterwards, they ate them, as this was thought to be an aphrodisiac. It was also in England (but later on, during the Victorian Era) that the rose became the symbol of pure love.
- Artemisia is a bitter herb that’s frequently incorporated in Middle Eastern wedding bouquets. This is said to bring good luck into a marriage and to help it survive both the bitterness and the sweetness of life.
- Danish and Swedish grooms believed that sewing strong-smelling herbs under their clothes will bring them good luck in marriage. Chives, rosemary and garlic were among the most frequently-used herbs.
