Me too!!! I am glad I am not the only one. I am ditching flowers for my wedding. Actually let me rephrase that, I am ditching flowers that look like real flowers (fake, silk, etc.). Instead, I’m using Mexican paper flowers. Then again my wedding is casual, backyard, fiesta so it will work.

Have you thought about using other things to walk down the aisle with instead of flowers? Like maybe a Spanish-style lace or wooden fan, a lantern, an old book/bible that’s been in the family, something that will be more meaningful to you than flowers you won’t really care about.

I’m using an old Spanish lace fan from my Grandma. I have fond memories of playing dress up with her fan and her cameo brooch (which I will also be using).

You can do cool floral / organic bouquets in those rich colors that don’t seem prissy, wedding-y or typical! Check out speckled lady slipper orchids, dahlias, chocolate cosmos, succulents (echevarias or hens and chickens), amaranthus, ornamental kale, thistle- I do have some cool pics along these lines that I have saved up for upcoming blog posts on unique bouquets, will pull and post some tomorrow! 

 

If you really don’t care about or want flowers, you could make something cool of feathers, etc instead too!
