There is a story behind the bride’s hand bouquet. Previously, the bride only carried a bunch of herbs, because it was believed that their fragrance could drive away evil power, bad lucks and diseases. Garlic was the most common plant to be chosen. In ancient Greek and Roman eras, this tradition was replaced by wearing a flower crown on the head of the bride as the symbol of new life and fertility.
