Has anyone carried a rosary instead of a bouquet? I recently told my mom that this is what I plan on doing and she asked me if this has been done before. I told her I didn’t know but would find out. Surely I’m not the first person to be doing this.

I just searched around google and it seems to be more popular to carry flowers with a rosary in/attached to them than just a rosary itself. My concern would be, to some people, are they going to see your rosary, or are they just going to assume you’re just walking down the aisle with nothing?
If that doesn’t bother you, I’d say go for it. Whatever floats your boat.

@Hyperventilate: +1 I think putting the rosary in/around the bouquet would look nicer 🙂

I carried my rosary wrapped around my bouquet.

@Hyperventilate: I’m not really concerned whether anyone is going to see it.
Thanks for everyone’s thoughts.

I actually carried both…the rosary was wrapped around the boquet and dangled from the end…and it was my “something borrowed” from my sister.

i’ve never seen a bride carrying just rosary beads…..It’s common for kids to carry them down the aisle with their first holy communion and I also saw a friend of mine who became a nun carrying them when she took her final vows…
Do whatever you feel is perfect for you…..their is no right or wrong in this case!

@cmsgirl: Thank you. I’m very untraditional so I’m making sure most aspects of our ceremony are adapted to how I would like them to be: unique.

@Autumnsnow: I’m not super religious, but I think that’s very very sweet!!

@Autumnsnow: To be honest, I felt the bouquet got in the way.
The flowers are a cultural tradition. It is not necessary to have them to receive the sacrament validly.
I did clip a rosary onto my bouquet and onto my bridesmaids bouquets. It’s a bit nice, but again, the bouquet gets in the way.
