They could carry clutches. Or kissing balls. Or feather bouquets. Or paper parasols or fans if you are having a summer wedding. Fur muffs in winter.

At a wedding I attended in August the bm’s had black lace fans. The bride also had a fan and there were no flowers anywhere because she’s highly allergic. As a guest I didn’t notice or miss the lack of flowers.

I have been in 2 weddings where there were feather bouquets used…. here is a pic of mine to show you how they photographed…

 

I think she just got the feathers from Hobby Lobby and  got to it with a hot glue gun and a plastic base… they held up all night and I thought they turned out pretty cool!

My girls will be carrying satin clutches to match their dresses with flowers attached to them. I like this over the traditional bouquet because it will be cheaper, and sometimes bridemaids carrying bouquets seems a bit little girlish.

@peasantsong: OMG that’s my blog! How exciting! lol

I actually did a lot of research to find all the bouquets for that post, and some of what I found didn’t even make it in. There are seriously a ton of alternatives.

Pinwheels, dried naturals (wheat, lavender, etc.), lanterns, clutches, silk flowers, buttons, brooches, hand warmers, feathers, fabric bouquets, pearls and crystals, seashells, fans, origami flowers, christmas ornament balls, felt flowers, pine cones, crochet flowers, fruits, vegetables (i’ve seen a picture of someone holding an artichoke!!).

@sarizzle: Aw thank you. 🙂 When I was figuring out what to do for my bouquet, I found a lot of options googling the phrase “non floral bouquet.”

And here’s the artichoke photo I was talking about. 😉
