How to throw a bouquet the RIGHT Way
Below are a few tips that will help you toss that bouquet without ending up on the internet’s funniest home videos.
1. Your Location
It’s important to stand in a place with no obstacles when you’re throwing the bouquet. Make sure there’s nothing above or behind you, or else your experience may not be what you’d expect. You or your bridesmaids may get injured and it’s definitely not something anyone wants.
2. Make Sure Your Photographer Is In Place
The right photographer can get some pretty impressive shots when you’re throwing the bouquet, so before you do it, make sure everyone is on position. Some of the best shots are the ones taken in front of the bride, with the bridesmaids behind her. It’s a very short moment, but it can lead to impressive shots.
3. Have A Throwing Bouquet
As mentioned earlier, there’s always the possibility of buying two bouquets and allowing the lucky one to keep one. It’s a great idea that allows you to go home with your beautiful wedding bouquet and try to preserve it for as long as possible.
This throwing bouquet can be a very loose one, so in the moment you throw it, it breaks apart and everyone can go home with a piece of it. Of course, it’s not always the case, but it’s a good idea if you wanna break the pattern.
4. Keep The Arrangements In Mind
Sometimes the bouquet is destined to be caught by one specific person. If that’s the case, you need to know where that person is and try to throw your best shot or simply gift the bouquet. It’s not a bad idea to practice the shot before and really do everything the way you want to.
If you follow all of these tips and still suffer a bouquet mishap, don’t fret. It’s not the end of the world. In fact, it could make for a hilarious memory!
