Have your mom hold your bouquet during the ceremony
You know, dads do get a lot of recognition, whether they’re walking you down the aisle or twirling you for your father-daughter dance. Let your mom in on the fun and have her hold your bouquet during the ceremony. Your maid of honor will have her own flowers to clutch, so instead of handing your bouquet to her, surprise your mom and hand it to her instead! Just make sure she has some tissues ready! Another fun alternative is to surprise both your mom and mother in law with their own bouquets.
Let your siblings hold the rings.
If your siblings didn’t make the cut for best man or maid of honor duties, why not have them hold each of your rings? Maybe your brother isn’t a groomsman—have him hang onto your new hubby’s wedding band. Or, if your soon-to-be sister in law isn’t part of your bride tribe, let her in on the wedding ceremony responsibilities by having her hold your wedding band. When the officiant asks for the rings, your siblings can bring them up from the front row.
