The Bridal Carry, or Princess Carry, is a type of carrying position where one person lifts another person with one arm under their legs and the other supporting their back in a similar fashion to a groom carrying his bride across the threshold or a knight carrying his princess to safety.
While used in a lot of circumstances (e.g. as an innocent way to carry someone), the carry is usually seen as a romantic pose and usually denotes or foreshadows a romantic relationship between the persons. With the one doing the lifting being seen as the dominant one in the relationship.
- Miia has always dreamed of being bridal carried but her weight and size makes it near impossible under normal circumstances. As a result she is jealous of Meroune Lorelei always being carried as such by Kimihito Kurusu.
- Carrying someone like this should only be done if you are entirely sure they are not suffering from neck or back injuries, whether pre-existing or new. It provides little support for the neck and little support for the spine.
