Commenting to follow as I feel the same way!, had thought of a single flower or actually nothing at all, but it’ll be nice to see what other people do.

I love a parasol! Then you’d close it and hand it off to your MOH during the ceremony!

Not sure if this helps but i’m doing a pearl bouquet. A lot cheaper than flowers & the brooches & not nearly as heavy. You could try other alternatives like a bible/fave book, paper/tissue flowers or a memento of a parent/grandparent if they’ve passed like a hankerchief. Good luck in the search!

I hate flowers and do not want a traditional bouquet. I thought of the brooch but wasn’t completely sold either. Here are a few from my pinterest board

Crepe paper roses

Christmas ornament bouquet

Plume/ feather bouquet

Palm frond bouquet (I live in the Caribbean)

Cotton bouquet. I love this one the most followed by the palm. 

I’ve seen cotton candy bouquet but is not in love with it at all. I hope these help. Show us what you were thinking of. I’m really interested in alternatives

@catwoman1701:  I think that would be hard for the exchange of rings/guests seeing you! I think holding a closed parasol along with her open one probably wouldn’t be too hard.

Or you could pass it off to your parents at the end of the aisle, and they could carry it back uo the aisle and hand it back to you!

I love the idea of giving my bridal party nice matching clutches to carry.  In my mind they can carry any wedding day schedules, vendor tips (for them to hand out during the day), and any emergency items like tampons/makeup/asprin etc…

For myself, I want to walk down the aisle with both parents,  so I don’t want to carry anything so I can hold their hands tightly!  I dislike carrying things around in general, so I really don’t want to do it on my wedding day.

@catwoman1701:  I think the pinwheel bouquet is actually one of the cutest and most unique ideas I’ve seen!What does your MOH have against them?

@catwoman1701:  I would show her the pinwheel bouquet because I think it’s adorable and so unique! When you said pinwheel that image would have never just popped into my head. Just curious, do you not want to do traditional flowers because they’re expensive or are you just looking for something more original?

I carried a bouquet, but not one made out flowers. Mine was made from my granny’s stash of old buttons and lace trim. I also made felt flower bouquets for my maids. Our lady of honor opted to have a button boutonniere to match the other gents.

I love all the ideas mentioned above. I would love to be in a wedding with pinwheels! They seem so fun 🙂
