I will be having a small (about 20 guests) nontraditional wedding in Vegas next month. I don’t have a bridal party, and my Fiance will be walking with me down the aisle rather than having my father giving me away. When it comes to the bouquet, I’m not going to have anyone like a Maid/Matron of Honor to pass it off too once we reach the alter. Is it ok to hold the bouquet myself during the ceremony? Is that weird? Will it make exchanging rings more difficult? Or is this totally ok? How will this look in pictures?
Your opinions and suggestions are appreciated! 🙂

I would hold them and place them on a pew or chair come time for the exchanging of the rings. You could also just ask one of the guests to hold it for you for the time you exchange rings too.

I think it would be hard to put his ring on while holding the bouquet. Sometimes it takes a little work to get his ring on, I know it did with my Darling Husband. And yeah, it could block the photos too.
I would put it down (like PP said), or arrange to have someone sitting close enough so you can pass it to them.

Hm ok maybe I will just have to delegate someone to hold it, I don’t want to look fumbly up there! 🙂

Any chance you could maybe have some sort of vase or other container already placed near the altar for this purpose?

Oh that’s a good idea! I will have to check with the venue to see if that would be ok (they have a lot of rules as to what’s allowed and what’s not)… it would be a really easy solution to my problem if they will allow it!
Thanks ladies 🙂

@hyperJulie: that was going to be my suggestion!
