Way back in the 1500's, June was the most popular month to get married in.........as most people had their annual bath in May! The practice of carrying a bouquet of flowers was thought to help mask the smell of body odour!!
Flower girls traditionally threw rose petals in the path of the bride to lead her to a sweet and prosperous future.
In Roman times brides and grooms wore garlands to symbolise new life and fertility. Ivy has always been a popular choice by the way it grows, binding itself round trees and up fences & buildings, as this symbolises the couples love binding them together.
