I wasn’t going to have a bouquet at first, but now I’m considering it. The reason is that it would give me something to do with my hands in photos. So if you have your mom carry the bouquet, you wouldn’t only be using the bouquet for a 30 second walk down the aisle.

I had both parents walk me down the aisle, and I also carried my bouquet. I think it looked just fine!

I thought about skipping it, but I love how it looks in our formal pictures!  For me, it was worth the expense to have that added contrast in the photos.  

For the cermony, I could have gone without it… but, since I had one, carried it and it was fine.  My reason for not wanting one is I didn’t want my dress to be blocked by anything for my entrance! 🙂

I think you could definitely get by with skipping it if you wanted to, or just get a smaller, less delicate version that you can hold while looping your arm around your mother’s arm. Calla lillies are skinny and hold up well in case you bump it around.

I would carry the bouquet and have both parents just link their hand loosely at my elbow.
