That’s adorable! If it fits your personalities, why not do it?  Especially since it’s reusable after the wedding and won’t die like flowers would.  Great idea! 

Some of my favorite ideas have been boquets that aren’t traditional flowers.  I love the look of bridesmaids carrying little clutches or something like that.  Flowers are great, but i see them as a bit of a waste of money.  Espeically since florists, etc can charge so much more for “wedding” flowers!

I’m never one to discourage off the beaten path ideas, but like ccranetobe, make sure you’ll still want to see that bouquet in your pictures down the line!!

Other cute non-flower bouquets that are popular:  button bouquets (find on etsy or do a quick google search), felt bouquets, feather bouquets, or pinecone bouquets (great for a winter wedding)!


Pinecone bouquet by Laurie Cinotto

Emplume's Bebe bouquet (l) and Fluffy White bouquet (r)

But if you love love love the idea of baking tools, I say go for it and don’t look back!

If you wanted it to look fuller you could probably wrap cloth around it like that pinecone bouquet has, or put filler (like those tall green things, or baby’s breath? OOH or colored ribbons starched to stand up in curls) in among the tools. I think it could be really cute if done well!

I think that’s such an original idea that you should really go for it!  Keep us updated!
