Maybe I should preface this by saying that we’re both a little out there and both love a touch of whimsy. Our only attendants are under the age of 10 (there are 4 of them–2 boys and 2 girls).
Ok. When I was trying to come up with ideas for the ceremony, specifically aisle decor, the idea of flowers or pomanders or really anything else I came up with just didn’t tickle my fancy. And then I found pinwheels. Pinwheels in our colors, which happen to be pink, orange and yellow. And I couldn’t help but think that they’d be cute somehow incorporated into the decor (this is an outside, spring, evening wedding we’re talking about, by the way.)
Am I just plain crazy? Have you ever seen this done? Does it sound cute and whimsical, or does it sound weird?

I think it sounds adorable, but that’s just me!!
I just googled like crazy to find this — http://www.earthsaversclub.org/wp-content/uploads/2008/06/pinwheels1.jpg — i like these but I wish they were taller, like higher up — so maybe you could attach them to something else to line the aisle like pomanders.
If they are what you want – do it! It is definitely something different and super cute.
You could also have your little attendants hold them instead of bouquets — it might keep them occupied longer 🙂

I looooove your idea! I think pinwheels at the reception would be fun and beatiful too. I was looking for some photos of pinwheels, and I found this- not your colors, but still totally cool.
I think it’s creative and awesome (I also love your colors).

Sounds like a good idea to me.

I think this is a wonderful idea. I am playing with the idea of having our programs be pinwheels (our ceremony will be pretty simple, so there isn’t much text). I think pinwheels are spring/summer-y and it is very original to use them in decor. I’ve seen a picture where someone used them as a cake topper, but I can’t seem to find it. I’ll add it later if I come across it. There is also a way to fold napkins that look like pinwheels (if that doesn’t take it too far).

@humarockbride–ours are a little larger, but that’s exactly the concept we were going for!!
We’re thinking about using the small ones at every other row down the aisle, and then using the larger ones…….somewhere else.
And I love the napkin idea!
