In ancient times, women wore flower & herb garlands on their hair to ward off evil spirits, chase away bad luck, and to make themselves smell more fragrant on the wedding day. Strong smelling herbs were often the choice, especially dill (known as the herb of lust) because it is believed to be a natural aphrodisiac. In modern times, brides often choose their bridal bouquets based on personal preferences. Brides like to match not just the decors, but also hair adornments to their bouquets for an unforgettable ensemble. The most popular choices of flowers are the classic roses, tulips, calla lilies, lily of the valley, hydrangeas, peony, ranunculus, and stephanotis. Vietnamese brides often choose orchids because it is a tropical flower that symbolizes purity and royalty.
