Hi guys, I am hoping that someone out there has the perfect solution to my problem!
I am getting married this summer out at the lake, very casual, beach wedding. At the request of my FI, we are having NO FLOWERS at the wedding, which I have no problem with as I am not particular to flowers, myself. We are still having lots of greenery in the hall, in the form of fern leaves, succulent clippings etc, just no actual flowers. My bridesmaids are carrying hand fans for the ceremony and the groomsmen and fathers will have pocket squares.
I am totally stuck on what to do for the mothers though!
I looked into succulent corsages but because they are somewhat of a specialty item they are quite pricey and we have 4 mothers between the 2 of us.
I am open to any and all suggestions!

@carmy147: Hmm what about some nice clutches?

I’ve seen some cute broches that aren’t old lady looking. I’ve been thinking about them as an option.

Get them fans in a slightly different look than the bridesmaids’. Seems like both a memento and a coordinating look.

@carmy147: My grandmothers did not want a corsage. The opted to carry one single flower, it wasn’t my first choice, but something like that isn’t that big of a deal :).
edit: ok, so no flowers. I like the idea of the clutch.

@pengoala: Ya, I was thinking of something like that, that they could carry with them all day! They wont be walking down the aisle so it seems silly to give them any kind of “bouquet” replacement like the bridesmaids will be carrying.

You could do Tussy Mussies and use only greens

How about a lei? They make them with shells, feathers, etc.

I really like those bracelet type of “corsage”, but since you won’t be having flowers, perhaps you could something similar without the flower? Or maybe just a pretty bracelet?
