We are getting married in January in Minnesota and I’m trying to think of ideas other than an bouquet for my bridesmaids and myself to carry for the short ceremony. I’ve thought of doing either the usual real or silk flower bouquet, or a brooch bouquet but I’m trying to determine if there is anything else I can do instead. Any ideas?
For centerpieces, we’re using lots of candles so that part is taken care of already.

I saw a bride on Four Weddings carrying a bouquet made up entirely of crystal stems. It was breathtaking.

We’re doing paper bouquets and boutonnieres custom made from etsy! I’m really excited about them and they are so much more cost-effective than real flowers (which I’m not a fan of, anyway).

The bridesmaids could each carry tall taper candles in glass holders, or a white lantern with a candle in it. This cost-cut could leave you with enough money in the budget for a special real flower bouquet for yourself!

I had a “bling bouquet.” I ordered it from BluePetyl.com.

I’ve seen some really cute bouquets with feathers. I may consider them some day. Depending on what you want, you can jazz them up with some brooches or glue on some crystals, too.

We got married in late November and had a winter wonderland wedding. My bouquet was Black Magic roses studded with swarovski crystals. It was gorgeous!

I was recently a bridesmaid in a wedding in February and the bride carried a bouquet that was a combination of silk flowers and pinecones, and us bridesmaids just carried clutches.
