Your Wedding Ceremony - The Proper Way to Carry a Bouquet at Your Perfect Wedding Ceremony
By Ann Keeler Evans

How many weddings have you been to where the bride and her bridesmaids have walked down the aisle acting as if they were carrying something unpleasant rather than a handful of beautiful flowers? This is one of those little things that both jars me as I stand watching a line of beautiful women walk toward me and makes me scratch my head. I don't know why either the wedding planners or the florists aren't teaching you how to hold your bouquets. One of the wedding planners jobs is to make you look great. Looking as if you know how to handle a bouquet simply makes you look more at ease. It lets the flowers do their job which is to declare you a gorgeous confident woman. The florist has spent hours making your flowers perfect. Making sure you carry your bouquet correctly allows the world to notice how beautiful the flowers are and not that the bride looked as if the stems to the flowers might have been too hot to handle or to hold too close to her body. You got these flowers to celebrate your marriage to your wonderful partner. Enjoy them.

So a few simple pointers to help you be comfortable at your wedding ceremony.
Make sure that your bouquet and those of your attendants are not so heavy that you won't be able to hold them through your wedding.
A wedding bouquet is held at about belly button height. Hold your hands snug against your belly (which offers you support in holding the flowers and doesn't let anyone see that your hands are shaking!).
You hold the flowers toward the community, not the stems. No one wants to see the stems, no matter how beautifully wrapped.
If you're carrying a sheaf of flowers, they rest in the crook of your left arm like a baby. Borrow your friend's baby and practice a bit. Look at old movies about Pageant winners.
Practice the royal wave, you may want to use it that day, you'll certainly feel like royalty.
If you're carrying a ball of flowers suspended from a ribbon on your wrist, fold that arm across your waist so that the ball hangs down the front of your gown.
A nosegay, or tussy-mussy is a lighter bouquet which can be held at belly button level if large enough or simply at waist level.
During the ceremony, have a small table with a receptacle that can hold your flowers while you're needing your hands. The vase will have to be heavy enough to hold the flowers without tipping over. (Stones or glass marbles in the bottom of the vase can help that.) You may want to hand off your flowers, but many of the bouquets are so heavy these days that it can be too much to hold two bouquets.
You'll want the same vase at the reception so that your flowers can be displayed to their full advantage. And the attendants will need vases in front of them as well.
Flower balls should be light enough that they can continue to swing from your wrist (and not so long they drag on the ground should you drop your arm to the side.).
Tussy-mussies can often tuck into a loop at the waste of your dress, if you have thought about it. Otherwise, they can sit in a smaller vase.


There. Simple, easy, and now you're set to be a beautiful bride and the queen of your day as you join your heart with your beloved's in marriage.
