What Do I Do With My Bouquet During the Ceremony?

Let me 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 hottttt.

You make it flawlessly all the way to the end of the aisle and your first thought after everyone sits down is, “Shit, what do I do with this bouquet!?”. Not anymore! I’ve got you covered.

The easiest and most common answer is to hand them to your Maid/Matron of Honor/Man of Honor.

They can hold any bouquets and be a rock star 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/Man of Honor? Or what if you want to break free from tradition?

Hand the bouquet to a Mom or Grandmother! 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. 


Whatever you decide, you’ve got this!
