TIP: “How to carry your bridal bouquet”
Carrying your bridal bouquet…too high, too low, or just right??
I know, you probably have never given it a moments thought…. but now its your turn to walk down the aisle you want to make sure you have it just right… trust me – you (and everyone else!) will look at and admire your photos for years to come!!
Here is a photo of my beautiful Grandma on her wedding day – I looked at this photo on her wall for years – then one day it dawned on me…. She is holding her bouquet upside down! …….. with the trail (or bottom) pointing towards her ear!!
Needless to say – she was horrified when I told her.
SO! here’s the thing….. 5 easy tips.
- make sure your shoulders are down and relaxed,
- BREATHE!! then breathe again….
- boobs out!
- if you have a trailing or posy bouquet hold the stems (or handle) near your belly button, your arms should be slightly “crooked” or bent, angle the stems in towards your tummy a little so the full “face” of the bouquet is facing the guests – and your photographer!
- relax and smile and enjoy your day!!
It is important to pick up your bouquet before you are running out the door, take a moment to get a feel for what feels comfortable and balanced for you when you hold it. Look in the mirror and have a play around, if you want to girls to look uniform in the photos have them have a wee practice with you.
….for informal shots (not for walking down the aisle) hold your bouquet in one hand, and drop your arm down to relax your shoulder.
