The finishing touch to a bride's wedding day look is the bridal bouquet. Flowers give an enchanting visual and romantic effect to the bridal outfit and enhance the whole appearance of the bride.
The story of the bridal bouquet is centuries old. In ancient Rome, brides carried or wore flower garlands or headbands, believing that flowers signify new beginnings, fidelity and hope of fertility. In the Middle Ages, brides wore strong smelling herbs and spices wanting to ward off and drive away evil spirits and bad luck. But the Victorians were the ones to introduce the flower bouquets that became a complementing part to the wedding outfit and that has continued until today.
Today brides choose flowers that express their personal style, taste and personality. They come in an extreme variety - starting from the traditional real flower bouquet to bouquets made of paper, fabric or jewelry pieces.
In this post I want to emphasize the beauty of crocheted flower bouquets.
By using different flower patterns and adding some fabric flowers and lace, brides can make a unique keepsake without burdening the bugdet.
