The bridal bouquet
The bridal bouquet probably dates back to the time of the Renaissance, when people did not attach such great importance to personal hygiene. A lot of incense was used to mask the unpleasant smell in the church. And so that the bride would not pass out during the ceremony, she held a bouquet of fragrant herbs – like rosemary.
Today the bridal bouquet is indispensable – for purely romantic reasons, of course.
Traditionally, the bride throws the bouquet at the end of the wedding ceremony. All unmarried women line up in a row. The bride throws the bouquet backwards… Whoever catches the bouquet will probably marry next.
