A Tussy Mussy is a victorian style bouquet. The small nosegay bouquet is arranged in a typically metal (though now there are several different materials available) made for carrying. Though they are not often used, these containers have a stand built in so they can be used as a centerpiece at the reception later.  Carrying a Tussy Mussy is the perfect addition to any vintage or Victorian styled wedding.
