    My boyfriend & I do that alot when we go to the mall or wherever and want to hold hands. That was what I wanted to do for this last wedding I was in, but he couldnt keep me straight! And with the bouquet in my other hand I wasn't able to help.

    I really must have had my head in the sand...but this is the first time I realized you were getting married! Congrats!

My older sis had the "white dress" ceremony outdoors, as will my younger sister, so the surface I'll be pushing on won't be very smooth.
    Kiran, I was just thinking that you could get a "quiver" that is normally used for holding arrows and put the flowers in the quiver. There of course many quivers and ways of holding them. You can get an antique one that can be worn on the back, i.e.

    There are hunting quivers, such as the following:

    You could attach a ribbon to your dress with a safety pin and secure the bouquet to your lap, or in front of your knees. Another option could be to tape or zip tie a small piece of ABS pipe or decorated tube to your chair by your leg and put the bouquet in there while you push.

    I actually really like the idea of attaching the bouquet to a ribbon around my waist. It will probably be the most inconspicuous way. I wouldn't want to look too different than the other bridesmaids, but there are some great ideas here!! Thanks everyone!
