5 Wedding Bouquet Handling Tips

Here are 5 simple tips for handling fresh wedding bouquets:

  • Leave bouquets in water (in the florist’s box) when you are not using them for photographs prior to the ceremony.  Most flowers will last reliably for about 2 hours out of water before they start to wilt.
  • An attendant should blot the stems with a towel before handing bouquet to the bride to avoid getting water drops on the wedding dress.
  • Carry your bouquet down by your hips/belly button.  If you carry it much higher you start to almost hide behind the flowers.  This will also be the best angle for you bouquet to be photographed!
  • Display the bridal and attendants’ bouquets on your head table or sweetheart table in addition to a centerpiece.
  • Incorporate something old into your bouquet by pinning a broach to the ribbon.  This is a great way to include your grandmother’s cameo or simply add a little sparkle.

Your bouquets will be the most photographed flowers on your wedding day so you’ll want to keep them looking their best!
