No matter how modern and outgoing we become, weddings across the globe still manage to remain a traditional affair. Every part of the world follows its own traditions, and Brisbane is no less in this respect.
Brides usually like weddings that follow family traditions. They enjoy wearing classic dresses and jewelry, of which corsages are an important part.

There is an interesting history behind the use of corsages in weddings. Different people have different theories for the same. According to some, the Greeks first started the tradition of wearing fragrant flowers around the bodice. This was done particularly for weddings, where the bride and other women were made to adorn their dresses with flowers. They believed that the fragrance of these flowers kept the evil spirits away from the bride.
Others believe that the tradition started in France, where a small bouquet of blossoms was called ‘Bouquet de corsage’. This is where we get the modern name for a small bouquet of flowers.
There is a given corsage etiquette, which most traditional brides need to follow. Initially, in many parts of Australia, flower corsages were only worn by older women in weddings. Mother, Grandmothers, and aunts, but over the years, brides too have started adorning their dresses with corsages.
