The Wedding Wreath
Wreaths have been a part of wedding ceremonies and customs for centuries. In the 15th and 16th centuries grapevine wreaths were used as wedding decorations in churches and homes. Ancient Chinese brides wore wreaths of orange blossoms in their hair to symbolize purity. Today wreaths can be used in many different ways. Using the chosen wedding flowers, wreaths can decorate church pews, the church or venue doors or be hung by a beautiful ribbon over a dessert table at the reception. Tiny evergreen wreaths can be formed to use as boutonnieres and delicate wreaths can be made for flower girls to wear in their hair.
