I was in a wedding and the photographer told us this tip…also to like, extend and flex our arms a bit so they wouldn’t be smooshed against our torsos. It felt really unnatural but it looked okay in pictures.

Our photographer kept reminding us to hold our bouquets at our belly buttons or lower.  I think that all of the future brides will appreciate this post!

Yeah, I knew to hold it low and forgot completely. It certainly would have looked better lower, but I can’t say it was the end of the world!

OMG I have totally been beating myself up over this whole topic as well. I got married a lil over 2 weeks ago and when I saw the guest pic of me walking out with my dad…..I was like oh nooooo! I totally knew where to carry the bouquet but once I started to walk out I totally FORGOT!

Oh well I guess worse could have happened….I do find some releif knowing I am not alone in this…..so future brides take note…LOL

I was told this in kindergarten when I was in a little fashion show and it has always stuck with me.

I actually have a picture of my bridsmaids holding them high and my photographer must have told them to drop them low becaue the next image is almost exactly the same, but all the bouquets are low.  It cracked me up so much that I tagged them to post in my recaps…which I’m writing right now.

🙂

I tell it to all my brides/bridesmaids during getting ready, and remind them again before walking down the isle. Still, they all manage to forget and hold their bouquet up high.
