Herb Love: A Wedding Tradition

A wedding tradition steeped in symbolic meaning, fresh herbs are a beautiful addition to any wedding.

A lucky pouch filled with tokens to ensure a happy marriage—roses for love and luck, calendula for health, rosemary for remembrance, a penny to represent money, a piece of wood for shelter, and a crust of bread for food—can be pinned to the hem of the bride's dress. After the ceremony, the pouch may be preserved as a keepsake.
