Walking Down the Aisle
After the wedding anticipation, excitement and months of planning, the Day finally comes. You might think you’ve got everything covered but there is one last think you need to consider… walking down the aisle. This is perhaps the most important part of the ceremony and, not to make you more nervous, the part, when all eyes will be glued to you. That’s why you need to make it right.
How to hold the bouquet
The answer is: lower than you think! Experts’ advice is to hold it closer to your lady parts, rather than your chest – this makes you look more elegant and sophisticated. Bonus tip: create a diamond shape between the arms and the body.
Your escort needs to lock arms with you, not the other way around. This will allow you to hold the bouquet in the right position.
The walking part seems the easiest, but might prove a real challenge, when it comes to it. Try to walk as you normally do, just a little bit slower. Keep your shoulders back and loosen up – don’t look stiff! Consult the music, as you walk – especially if it’s medium-paced. If it’s too slow for you, you can increase the pace, just don’t make your trip down the aisle longer than the whole ceremony!
What about the guests
Smile, as you walk! After all, this is the most important day of your life – show your guests how happy are you and how much you appreciate them coming to see you. Don’t just stare ahead, as it will make you look like a robot. Look around and find those friendly faces that always gave you comfort and smile.
A bonus tip: you can practice the walk before actually doing it – it’ll make you calmer during the ceremony!
