What's the proper way to carry a bouquet?

For my Wedding Trends article this week, I answered 2 questions posed by readers. One - how to carry a bouquet. Two - what's the groom's mother's role in planning a wedding. Both are very interesting topics!

For the bouquet, you may want to stand in front of a mirror and just see what looks the best. A typical bouquet will look very nice carried low, at the waist, slightly pointing forward. I guess the best piece of advice I can give is to relax your arms and keep the flowers low, because that's what looks good in photos.

For the groom's mom, that can be much more touchy! If you're the bride, try to involve your fiance's mother in some aspect of the planning, so she feels included. After all, you are marrying her son! While the main focus of the wedding is on the bride and groom, the celebration is a joining of two families - so start off on the right foot!

Until next time, happy planning...
