Hello Bee’s! another question..
I am getting married on the disney cruise to the bahamas this summer and their flowers are really expensive for the bridesmaids. I only have 2 bridemaids at the moment but I was not only thinking about the cost but how much fun and unique would it be if i came up with a alternate thing for them to hold down the isle. I know you are like why dont you buy your own flowers but they wont let you have your own flowers inless its fake not knocking fake flowers cause i would take that route if i have to im just looking for suggestions of any unique ideas.
thank you Bees<3

Tissue paper pomanders…you could add a stem (pretty much any kind of wire covered in floral tape) if you want them to be carrying bouquets. Or paper flowers (kusudama flowers are pretty easy to make–I think Mrs. Poodle has a tutorial on them somewhere, or you could google it). Both of those could be stored flat in luggage and assembled during your trip. Kusudama would take a lot more folding and assembly time. What about parasols? Those would be a little harder to store. There’s a wedding somewhere on rocknrollbride.com where they carried lollipop bouquets 🙂 The sky’s the limit!

We got married in a church and then had another small ceremony on a Carnival cruise ship, so I wanted to spend as little on flowers as possible but still have something for myself and my bridesmaids at the ceremony. So my sister and I made my bouquet out of fabric roses we made and my bridesmaids carried clutches. It worked out perfectly because it complimented their dresses nicely and I even saw a couple of them use the clutch with other outfits throughout the cruise.
Don’t have any professional pics, but here are two so you can get an idea.
Also, button bouquets and feather bouquets are nice options you can purchase from etsy or make yourself if you’re a DIYer.
Hope this helps! Good luck and Congrats!

I’ve seen it where the BMs carried clutch purses, and it looks fantastic. Plus, they have a fun purse they can use afterwards.

Oh there are so many things!!! My favorite would be a felt and brooch boquet…they are so cute.

@CupCakeMeg: I think the felt one with buttons could work for a winter wedding as well..just use more whites and pearalized buttons.
Here are some other ideas though!

what about parasols?
And @Baileyh: took my fan idea. Drat.
For the winter option I’d totally do handmuffs. Stylish AND comfy!

I love the faux fur muff Idea! Because I was thinking of wearing an Ivory Faux Fur Wrap/Shawl for the ceremony, because mom wants my back covered (Tattoos) but do not want to have it covered with makeup!!
Oh and the pine cones!!! Love that! We didnt want want to do anything TOO christmas’y because its still a wedding, but we love the idea of frosting and glitter’ing (lol) the pine cones!
Thanks for the suggestions! Awesome!!!
*Lantern idea is super cute!
