In the traditional Greek wedding,
connected wreaths are used,
one on the bride's head,
and the other on the groom's.
They walk around the alter, 3 times,
behind the priest, as the priest chants a prayer for them.

These are my parent's wreaths, and they were married in 1958.
The flowers and buds are made of wax, and the rings are heavy white covered wire, wrapped in a satin heavy thread.
The ribbon connecting the pair, can be removed or replaced, if desired.
The ribbon does need steaming, or pressing, to remove the wrinkles from being boxed.
Ribbon has a finished edge, is 7/8" wide, and 40" long.
7 1/2" in diameter, and flowers are just about 1" wide, berries are 5/16" long.
The flowers, leaves, berries are positionable, as they have wire stems.

These are in excellent near perfect condition, with no flaws or issues to mention.
They are antique ivory, (not white, as your monitor may display my photos,) and would be perfect crowns for a bride and groom.
