Traditional & Trivial Tuesday - To toss or not to toss


The tossing of the bouquet...it's an old tradition, that has taken a back seat. As the years go on, less bouquets are being tossed in the air. So Why do we toss the bouquet? Bouquets back in the day were made with strong herbs like thyme and garlic to keep away evil sprits. But of course today they are all about beauty. As for the toss some say in ancient time the bride and everything apart of her the day of her wedding was good luck, so she would toss the bouquet as a good luck souvenir. And then there are the single ladies who line up trying to catch the bouquet with hopes of being the next one down the aisle.
