Myrrh in Jewish Weddings

Below is a wedding photo of my maternal grandparents Robert and Cecilie Oling who married in April 1908. Cilli has leaves adorning her veil and Robert has matching greenery in his lapel. I would be interested to know more about the significance of myrrh (if that is what it is) in Jewish weddings.
