Ceremony Tips - Bridal Party

1. How to hold a bouquet

  • Hold it at your belly button.

  • Tilt it forward so we see the tops of the flowers rather than the stems.

  • Poke your elbows out a smidge for spectacular photos!

2. Hand Placement

  • Left hand over right anytime you are being photographed.

3. How to Hook Arms

  • If you hook arms, you want to ensure your hands are flat. We tend to ball up our fingers, which look like they have been chopped off in photos.

4. Keep Your Chin Up

5. Don’t Lock Your Knees

  • You will pass out!

6. Bouquet + Train Duty

  • The maid of honor should hold two bouquets, the bride’s and her own.

  • The second person in line will be responsible for train duty, ensuring it’s nice, flat, and pretty for photos.

  • Keep these assignments throughout the rest of the day to keep consistency.

7. Flower Girls + Ring Bearers

  • Decide if you would like them standing or sitting during the ceremony.

8. The Rings

  • Decide who will be holding the rings ahead of time. The Maid of Honor and Best Man, Best Man has both rings, or give them to the officiant beforehand.

  • We DO NOT recommend giving the rings to Ring Bearers under the age of 10.

9. Bridal Party Spacing

  • Using golf tees for outdoor ceremonies or a coin/marker for indoor ceremonies can be very helpful to guarantee even spacing for your bridal party.
