Ok so this may seem like an obvious question but what should I do with my flowers during the wedding? I’m having my brother as my ‘Man of Honor’ and no bridesmaids as my Fiance and I want to keep it simple (female attendants would have been a tough choice without having 4 min). Any thoughts besides having my brother hold the bouquet during out outdoor wedding in the vineyard garden?

Perhaps you can hand it to a female of importance sitting in the front row as you reach the end of the aisle and before you take your place? Your mother or grandmother?

I agree with Sapphirebride.

I would have your brother hold it for you. If he was the maid/matron of honor, that is who would be holding it for you.

All of the ideas suggested so far are great… It might be a good way to honor your grandmother/ mother/ new Mother-In-Law. I have heard of some brides getting bouquets that split in 2 parts and they give one to each after their dad walks them down the aisle. The only other idea I have is maybe incorporating the bouquet into your decorations… such as a special stand or something you can place it on yourself or have your brother place it on there for you and give it back before you walk back down the aisle.

@Amaroo We are both having a similar wedding! I am also trying to figure out what to do with my bouquet. My best friend is my Man of Honor and I don’t have bridesmaids either (same reason as you-we wanted to keep it simple and small)and I don’t think I want him to hold the bouquet. I’ve thought of giving it to my mom in the front row or having a small table up there to set it on. Still not sure what to do!
