The right hold is everything! Your bouquet is a lavish and iconic wedding accessory that puts accent and statement in your overall wedding fit. While it is highly important to invest in a great floral designer, knowing how to hold your bouquet properly is just as important. Throughout our years of experience and craftsmanship in this field, we observed a good number of know-hows of holding a bouquet that might help you flaunt your glam in the aisle!
1. Hold it at the navel/belly button.
The rule of thumb when holding your bouquet is to put it in the right placement. Always place your bouquet at the level of your navel/belly button. This makes your dress and your bouquet well-coordinated, especially in different camera angles (trust us, your videographers will thank you). When your bouquet is held at the lower part of your body, it gives an accent and contour on your gown that will want to highlight as you walk along the aisle.
2. Always be relaxed.
A big no-no when holding your bouquet and walking down the aisle is having tensed shoulders and arms. It is important to hold your bouquet in a relaxed yet firm manner. Having tensed arms and shoulders will make you look stiff and will instantly shut the confidence off. When this happens, it could result in a poor result of videography and photography even after your wedding. So remember, just feel the moment and put on that confidence when flaunting your fits.
3. Highlight all the right parts.
When walking down the aisle, it is definite that your face should be the focal point. However, to achieve this, you should also incorporate your posture, gown, and bouquet. You do not want to hold your bouquet higher than your belly button as this makes your face the secondary source of attention only. But instead, you want to balance everything by making sure your face is directed in the middle (not too leaning) while your bouquet is held downward.
