To be safe, the lower the better. Holding it up near your boobs looks silly! I think if you clasp your fingers together and let your arms hang naturally in front of you while your fingers are intertwined, that’s where you should hold your bouquet!

I agree with Penguin…the lower the better sounds right. I hope I remember that…

I also agree with Penguin.  Basically the best height is where your arms fall naturally when clasped together in front of you – roughly hip area…

I agree with you ladies but my friend’s photographer made us hold our bouquets with our arms at a 90 degree angle… It may have just been better for the photos.

i heard just around your waist is the right spot. that way you can see your face and it hides any tummy bulges!

right around your navel is good. i tell the bridesmaids and brides “you don’t want to look like you have a floral lollipop on the pictures” that usually gets them to walk with them held low and beautiful.

Exactly what crecre80 said! Right at your belly button. My college roommate held hers way too high and it looks like she is singing into her bouquet microphone in every one of her pictures. She was so upset. They were literally underneath her chin!

What about while you’re walking down the aisle – if you’re taking the arm of your dad or another escort? Low and to the side somewhere? This seems like such a silly question, but I don’t want to look awkward!

Just hold them with your free hand right at your navel.

@crebre- LOL at calling it a ‘floral lollipop’

EEEK! I am totally guilty of doing this. One of my bridesmaids actually reminded me not to about 20 minutes or so before the ceremony. But, after seeing my dad right before walking down the aisle I was so emotional that piece of advice just went out the window. Also, the bouquet was really heavy and all I could think about was getting to the end of the aisle to see my husband! Photo evidence.

I agree with flowers being right about at the belly button.  If it’s too much lower it can look like you’re trying too hard which tends to look a little awkward.

i was also told to hold bouquets around the navel area. can’t seem to go wrong there!
