In the 1500's most people got married in June because they took their yearly bath in May, and they still smelled pretty good.. However, since they were starting to smell, brides carried a bouquet of flowers to hide the body odor. Hence the custom today of carrying a bouquet when getting married
Bridal Veil was intended to protect the bride against evil spirits by concealing her identity until she was safely wed.
