Usually the flowers were worn as a garland in the bride’s hair. The modern bouquet of herbs and flowers became more popular when Queen Victoria carried a bouquet at her wedding.

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life.  You spend months – possibly years – planning your perfect day, and then – sadly – it seems like it’s over in a flash.  As you plan your special day, think about how you can preserve those special memories.  Of course, there’s the photographs and video.
