It seems that many brides make the mistake of holding their bouquet so that it blocks the pretty bodice of their dress. If your elbows are at a right angle, you are holding your bouquet too high! To show off your dress and your bouquet to their best advantage, your arms should be only slightly bent, so that the bouquet is near your belly button.
Says Soiree Classroom:
The advantage of holding your bouquet lower is that it shows off the delicate bustline of your gown and also has a slimming effect on your waist. It balances out the proportions of your upper and lower bodies while simultaneously making you look cool and confident. What’s not to love?
