These are wonderful! It is interesting how little weddings have changed over the decades considering all the other changes in fashions and society.

I agree Ruskie, though many of the bouquets seem a lot larger!  ;D

I read that when brides (and people in particular) weren't so worried about personal health, they carried large bouquets to cover the smell  ::) ::)
