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

I was a bridesmaid for my other sister's wedding in 2006, and I found that resting the bouquet on my lap didn't work too well because it was bouncing around a lot. 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!

              I held a bouquet and was pushed by a groomsman as it was outside on bumpy terrain.

                Wise's response has to win the prize for "creative", though!

                Very cool quivers.

                  Too bad Martha Stewart is not here to chime in, I'm sure she would have some good creative ideas.

                  Heck if it was me I'd just stuff the flowers in my back pack, that way everyone could have a nice view of them when your up at the alter, typical guy response I guess

                  you have no goals, no

                    A similar one was made for me as a wrist corsage and I pushed myself.

                      Just have the florist make your bouquet in such a way that one side is fairly flat. I've been in about 5 wedding parties and always just put it in my lap. Just make sure you're holding the nice side for pictures.
                      Oh and make sure there is extra waterproofing around the stems.... a wet mark on the lap is never nice .. esp in bridesmaid silks and chiffons!
