Bridal Accessories

For centuries bridal accessories have been on every bride’s list of must haves for her wedding day? I guess some things haven’t changed much over the years, or have they?

Did you know wedding bouquets in the 15 century were originally used to send messages?  The groom would create a beautiful bouquet for his bride as a way to send her a message. The bride would communicate back by doing the same. The trick here was that different flowers had different meanings. So thanks to those meanings, the bride and groom could send secret messages to each other. How clever is that!

I’m not sure I’m a fan of this next tradition.  The Ancient Greeks and Romans had a deep fear for evil spirits, so veils were used to protect the bride. Sounds like a lovely custom so far, but wait there’s more. The first veils were thick, heavy and red and covered the bride from head to toe. This was to make her resemble fire, which apparently scared the evil spirits away. Hmmm, not particularly appealing hey. Thank goodness, today’s brides wear their beautiful bridal accessories for all wonderful reasons.
