@g1mase2:  I will be carrying a brooch boquet and my maids will have “pearl bouquets”. I found the idea on Pinterest

I googled bouquet alternatives and saw all sorts of interesting things. Pinwheels, fans, a bunch of fruit. Someone had a candy bouquet. Lots made from beads or broaches and buttons.

@g1mase2:  I vote for lit roman candles. Totally an unforgettable tribute to the bride and groom.

I’m having my ladies drag up lobster traps. It’s a regional thing. Ha ha. They better not snag my runner!!

I think you have several options. I was going to do Whirly pops. like make them into a bouquet. we ultimately decided against it but i think that or flags or balloons would be cute.

How about lanters, watering cans, parasoles, kissing balls made of pinwheels or butterflys, or if you want to go with the holiday, how about kissing balls made of flags and diy fireworks? Storybook roses or cloth flowers are an option too…


My girls are carrying lanterns that match our centerpieces as our wedding is at sunset in October.









Ohhh, how about grapevine balls with lights inside or made to look like a kissing ball??


Hope that helps a little bit. 🙂

Parasols — fun and colour.



Bubble blowers (bubble guns) — awesome for pictures and gives an element of fun.

Pretty much anything hand-held??
