Why A Brides Bouquet

Here are some facts about the 1500s:

Most people got married in June because they took their yearly bath in May, and they still smelled pretty good by June. However, since they were starting to smell brides carried a bouquet of flowers to hide the body odor. Hence, that is why the custom today of the bride carrying a bouquet when she is getting married.
