What Do I Do With My Bouquet During the Ceremony?
Let’s paint a picture for you: you’re walking down the aisle on your wedding day looking gorgeous as ever and you’re slowly placing one foot in front of the other. You don’t trip, you don’t ugly cry, and your future spouse looks BOMB.COM. That’s great! We are so pumped and got some beautiful photos! You make it flawlessly all the way to the end of the aisle and your first thought after everyone sits down is, “Shit, where do my flowers go!?”. Now anymore, girl! We got you covered. Here’s info for when you say, “What do I do with my bouquet during the ceremony?”
The easiest and most common answer is to hand them to your Maid/Matron of Honor. She can hold both bouquets and be a rockstar for you. You’ll be hands-free and able to hold hands with your best friend, wipe away tears, and exchange rings. Perfect.
Well…what if you don’t have a Maid/Matron of Honor? Or what if you want to break free from tradition? We have you covered there too with some ideas!
No Maid/Matron/bridal party? Hand the bouquet to a Mom! They’ll love holding your bouquet for you and will feel extra-important.
Another option? Have a table behind where your vows will take place. Gently lay the flowers directly on the table. Or, be super prepared and have a vase all ready to go with water and place the flowers in the vase. You can take the extra few steps (again, not tripping or falling because you’re a gorgeous, graceful lady!), place your bouquet in the vase, and walk back. Nobody will think twice when you take a few extra steps (you won’t trip because you’re a gorgeous, graceful lady!), place your bouquet in the vase, and walk back. Nobody will think twice.
Whatever you decide, you got this! Let us know what you did with your bouquet during the ceremony or what you plan on doing for your ceremony?
