This is what Meghan Markle did with her bouquet

While in most traditional weddings where brides throw their bouquet behind them to a crown of standing women who are still unmarried so that they can catch it, Meghan opted for the royal tradition.

The new Duchess of Sussex has followed Royal Wedding tradition by having her bridal bouquet placed on the tomb of an unidentified warrior at Westminster Abbey.

The Queen Mother began this tradition which usually takes place the day after the wedding. The started when the Queen Mother left the flowers on the grave in Westminster Abbey in 1923 after her wedding to the Duke of York who later became King George VI.

They were left there as a tribute to her brother Fergus, who was killed in 1915 during World War One.
