We are putting them in vases at the reception as well.  I haven’t thought about the entrance thing yet but I’m thinking they could walk in without the flowers and it would be totally fine.

Our girls will have their bouquets when they get introduced, but then our DOC will take them to decorate our cake table.  (I’ll probably have our DOC take care of these during cocktail hour, as well, come to think of it…)

Our introductions were done at the end of cocktail hour, so the girls were just introduced without their bouquets.

I was thinking about using the bridesmaid flowers to decorate the head table. No one is going to look at the table until we get there anyways, and our announcements are going to be after cocktail hour as well.

They don’t need to walk in with flowers. Have the vases ready, put the flowers in them. Voila! Instant floral design!

much like bruschetta mentioned we had our DOC there to take them as they walked in and drop them off in the appropriate vases.

I was at a wedding last summer where the bridesmaid’s flowers were the centerpieces at their table.  So there was a vase with water on our table and after the bridesmaid sitting at our table was introduced she just dropped her flowers off in the vase.  It worked really well, but the key was the bridesmaids knew they needed to drop their flowers off.  The photographer just took “details” shots of the tables that already had flowers, and then shots of our table after the flowers mysteriouslly appeared.

My girls walked in with their bouquets after being introduced after cocktail hour. Then they formed an arch where my husband and I walked through. We went straight into our first dance from there and the bridal party stood on the edge of the dance floor. It was during our dance that they handed over the bouquets to the maitre’d and he took care of placing them on our sweetheart table. It looked beautiful!

I plan on putting them in vases on high tables in the cocktail area.  As of right now I think for me it is going to be too much of a hastle to get them out of the vases for the introductions, so I am just going to have the girls go in without them.  Either way, everyone will be looking at your smile and not at the bridesmaids’ hands!
