    I never thought about it before but I am having a bouquet for my wedding in a couple weeks. What would you carry instead? Just curious.

    I’m not married yet, but I’m thinking of nixing the bouqet in favor of my sabre from fencing.  It’s how Fiance and I met.  I also tend to kill flowers, so I beel a bouqet would be very inappropriate.

    If you don’t want one, I would say don’t worry about it.  I’ve also heard of BMs just folding their hands walking into the ceremony w/o bouqets.

    Do what makes you feel comfortable!  You’ll also be saved from having to pay exhorbitant wedding floral prices.

    if that’s what you want, go for it, but I’m wondering what you plan to hold instead?  Otherwise I just wouldn’t know what to do with my hands lol

    I had a bouquet, but was it essential to the validity of our marriage?  Obviously Not. Besides an officiant and two witnesses I suppose nothing else is necessary.  It’s just a matter of what “fluff” you deem importanT. If you don’t think a bouquet is worth it don’t have one!

    I don’t think it’s a big deal if you don’t have bouquets.  There are plenty of other things your BMs could hold (eg. clutches, parasols, single flowers) but you definitely don’t have to have anyone hold anything if you’re not into it!

    For awhile I wanted feather flowers:

    I ended up going with real flowers though.

     

    I don’t think it’s a big deal to go with an alternative or without a bouquet! Do what makes you happy 🙂

    @skoiner923:  I’m going to do a bouquet, but I think you can definitely skip it if you’re not into it. You’re the bride! I’m not sure why you are thinking about not having one, but if it’s cost (flowers are so expensive sometimes!!) I just want to share my experience with a $4 bouquet.

    I bought the flowers at a grocery store, wraped them in ribon they were kind enough to give me at the groery store and pinned them with pins Fiance had, wile in a moving car going to our bridal photo shoot. It was my very first time doing anything of the kind and I think they looked pretty good. So, if it’s cost, that can very easily be got around.

    No bouquet for me. Beau and I are walking the processional together, and that’s all I need.

    I’ve seen some really cool brooch bouquets. Perhaps that’s something you can look into. There are a lot of options out there.
