For years and years brides have been walking down the aisle with a gorgeous bouquet of flowers in their hands, but if you thought it was just because they look pretty, you would be wrong.
There are a number of reasons said to be at the centre of the tradition.
1. The Smell -
Apparently, in the 15th & 16th centuries, people didn’t bathe as often as they do now. We’re talking like once a year. Brides would have their yearly bath around a month before their wedding day, and then just to be safe, would carry a bouquet of flowers TO MASK THEIR ODOUR!
