RE: [S-R] Wedding Tradition
- I found the following for you:
CZECHOSLOVAKIA: Rosemary wreaths, handmade by the mother or grandmother of
the bride is a century old tradition for brides in the countryside. A
variation of this today is seen as wreaths of baby's breath and miniature
roses, worn as often by the attendants as the bride herself.
Friends of the bride traditionally weave her a crown of rosemary leaves
Apparently an alternative custom in Slovakia is for the bridesmaids to
prepare boutonnieres made of rosemary for the groom and other male

on Rosemary and wedding.

Subject: [S-R] Wedding Tradition
I would like to find out information about a specific wedding
tradition and I'm sure I'll get the correct answer from this site.
I've recently been in contact with new found family members (father's
side of family) in Brezina and Kocise who have forwarded family
pictures to me. The pictures of wedding couples that I received, the
brides have a weave of rosemary pinned/weaved onto their bridal
dress. Can someone please give me insight/explanation on this
tradition. As I am preparing an family tree for my siblings,
children, grandchildren -- I'd like to add some history of traditions
into my tree. Thank you all and Happy 4th of July!!!
