I often wonder how many of these women were widows by the end of the war....

It looks almost like the garlands around the necks are made of rosemary? After this suspicion, I checked. It doesn't necessarily say in the following that it is for weddings, but maybe someone knows more?

"A little bouquet of rosemary (popularly called Rosmarein), symbol of love, faith and earth, is our constant companion throughout the year and throughout our whole life, from the joyous celebration of baptism to the hour of leave-taking from the deceased."

I have some "couples" wedding photos in my collection. What was the reason for these types of weddings?


Cheers,
