Married bees and sensible bees….
After I walk down the aisle, do I continue holding my bouquet during the ceremony? Or do I pass it to my Mum? (I have no bridal party). I’m getting married in 2 weeks and these small details are starting to freak me out!! What do I do with the freaking bouquet!!!

Pass it to someone, in this case your mum.

Pass it to your mum and then when she’s at the reception, you can put a vase out or at the very least a holder she can put it in for the reception.

alysee: j_jaye: So what do I do with my hands during the 20 min ceremony? Hold my FI’s hands? Why have I never paid any attention at other people’s weddings? Arghhh!! Thanks ladies

You stand with your bouquet I believe until you hold hands to put the ring on…I think? My wedding was only 2 months ago and I can’t remember! LOL

Your officant/celebrant wil guide you. Usually when you get to the vows or the ring exhange he/she will say something like ” Please pass your bouquet to X and join hands with Y as you exchange your vows of marriage”. It is nice to reclaim your bouquet and display it on the signing table before you sign your certificateof marriage.
Don’t worry about any of this. You’ve never noticed before because it usually happens seamlessly. Trust me, if you have someone competent running your ceremony they will be conscious of this issue.They will guide you through it.

when i got to the top of the aisle i gave my bouquet to my bridesmaids who held it for me until we were ready to walk out after the ceremony then i took it back and walked out with it. during the ceremony my hands were either by my side, linked infront of my or holding hands with my hubby to be. dont overthink it – the day goes way too fast to be worrying about what you are going to be doing with your hands 🙂

ne11y23: Whoever you pass it to, remember to get it back! My SIL forgot to get hers before she went back down the aisle and she said it felt awkward not to be holding anything up as she “cheered” for the “yay we’re married” thing as they walked back down, and she was sad her bouquet wasn’t in the photos of that.

You’ll want to either pass it to your mom, or set it down somewhere. Your officiant should guide you.
