Wedding Wednesday: Orange Blossoms

It used to be a tradition for brides to wear orange blossoms in their hair. The delicate flowers and bright scent must have been lovely - and imagine the flood of memories each time you walked near a citrus tree.

Prince Albert even designed a gold orange blossom brooch as a gift for Queen Victoria when they got engaged. Just a bit of trivia I ran across while researching a project.

For a modern interpretation, take a peek at this gorgeous bouquet with orange blossoms, garden roses and peonies.

I may try to incorporate these into my wedding in September. They are very pretty and I can imagine how nice they would smell.
