{Flowery Romantic Legends}

Dear Bride-to-Be:
Have you ever—while walking in the woods or strolling in a garden—reached down to pick a flower and instinctively tucked it behind your ear? It's just a naturally feminine thing to do!

In fact, a woman wearing flowers in her hair is simply a feminine birthright, inspiring poetry, paintings and dreams of fantasy—creating romantic legends. And brides have continued this tradition for as long as stories have been around to recount the tales.

I always encourage a bride to wear something in her hair—whether it is a piece of jewelry, fresh flowers, a tiara or designer headpiece—because it draws attention to her eyes and highlights the feminine mystique of it all! (That's part of the enchantment of being a bride, yes?)

If you choose to wear fresh flowers in your hair as a bride, you'll be walking in the footsteps of thousands of beautiful goddess-like women. And if you choose to wear fragrant fresh flowers on your wedding day—roses, gardenias, jasmine—the fragrance can carry you into your own legendary remembrance....(and someone just may want to paint your portrait!)

Love. Listen. Let go.
...with love from Cornelia

ps: the series on "aromatherapy, weddings & brides" continues throughout February!
