Wedding Fact Friday

I would not have wanted to carry one of these bouquets!

"For ancient Greeks and Romans, the bouquet was a pungent mix of garlic and herbs or grains. The garlic was supposed to ward off evil spirits and the herbs or grains were to insure a fruitful union. In ancient Poland, it was believed that sprinkling sugar on the bride's bouquet kept her temper sweet." (source)

  1. I would have carried the Greek bouquet, then cooked it and eaten it. Done.
