I’m thinking about going with a less traditional cascade bouquet with a mix of roses and orchids. I feel like there is only one way to hold it — in front of you and over the belly button with both hands. Wouldn’t it look awkward if you held like this (https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcR9JLVgCBFeg9hCGcPxrOGZZqoYY2K4bS8b5J97tu02YhyTA50t)

Also, how do you toss it if it’s so long/kinda bulky? Would you guys suggest tossing one of the bridesmaids’ bouquets instead or making another toss bouquet (more $$ though)? Has anyone ever heard of having 2 bouquets — a more elaborate, cascading one for the ceremony, and a light-weight dance/entrance-friendly one for some photos and the reception?

I’m not sure about the posing, but it is standard that the bouquet toss happens with a toss bouquet or a bridesmaid bouquet, and the bride’s bouquet can be presented to someone or preserved.

Yeah, I just had a cheapie bouquet for tossing. Even a bunch of grocery store flowers just tied together if you want to save money, since it’ll likely get trashed.
I used mine for the ceremony and pictures. I didn’t carry it once we arrived at the reception. I had a vessel to stick it in and never picked it up again.
