That’s such a good idea! I’ve never thought of that.. I went to google (my best friend) and found this photo of a girl who did it with roses.. Maybe if you attatch the bible with ribbon to the handle of your bouquet? I’m interested in seeing what you come up with!

What a beautiful idea. I imagine this would be best executed with very simple flowers, so it didn’t look like you were just hiding a book behind a normal bouquet. πŸ™‚

That’s such a unique and special idea that you will always treasure in your heart. I think I may have to copy that. Lol. Great idea!

Thank you SO much! I really wanted to carry a bible, but I wanted flowers too… this is such a beautiful compromise πŸ™‚ Plus the small bunch of flowers will fit right in as my bridesmaids are only having wrist corsages.

My future Mother-In-Law carried a small white bible down the aisle when she got married, and (if she can find it) she will lend it to me so I can use it too πŸ™‚

Seriously, thank you for posting that photo! I never even thought to google it. What keywords did you use?

That’s such an interesting idea!  I wonder if there are other ways to execute that.  I would talk to a florist and get ideas. πŸ™‚

My mother did it with an old bible that belongs to my Nana. She carried both flowers and a bible with rosary beads. I was thinking about doing the same & carrying the same bible — maybe wrapping the beads around the handle of my bouquet for the church.

I think it’s a very old fashioned tradition but I kinda like it.

I love this idea! I wanted to carry a Bible and rosary, but my Future Mother-In-Law is a horticulturist whose life is flowers and it would break her heart for me to not have a bouquet. It’s the only part of the wedding she really feels comfortable talking about with me, and she even gave me a check for flowers so I can’t let her down now. But look! I can combine them! 

I’m thinking that I might get myself a new white Bible for my wedding, and then forever it will be my special wedding Bible – maybe a daughter or daughter in law will one day use the same one… Thanks for this post!

I am doing something similar as it is an old family traditon to carry my great-great-great-great grandfather’s white Bible. I also, however, wanted to carry flowers and was stuck on which one to do I decided to take just one single flower from each of the four (blue and yellow gerber daisies and blue and yellow roses) and wrap white ribbon around it to hold the flowers close to the Bible, in a similar fashion to the picture above.

I’m actually having something like this. I’ll have a bouquet but instead of a pillow our ring bearer is going to have our rings tied to a ribbon around my dad’s Bible.

@Lapeaudesoie: You can wrap your rosary around your bouquet!
