How to: Hold your bouquet!
Now you might just think, I know how to hold flowers! But honestly unless you’ve been in a lot of weddings, are a florist, or a wedding planner you probably don’t.
You want to make sure that you aren’t covering to much of your upper half – SHOW off that dress! You also want to make sure that the blooms are the main part of the bouquet getting captured – not the steams.
Hold the bouquet roughly at your belly button. Your arms should be relaxed at a 45-degree angle or wider. The bouquet should sit below your waist and at your hips. The bouquet just be tilted; Blooms out steams in.
Here you can see how the bridal party is holding their bouquets all differently:
Moving from right to left:
1. Slightly to high but good angle.
2. Nice height but to straight = lots of stem.
3. Just right.
4. Groom – looking good!
5. To low and much to straight.
6. Low but nice angle.
7. A little high (appears high but she’s much taller than her neighbors).
8. Too high.
Here you have a much more cohesive look. There could be a couple of tweaks but overall, well done!
