    I think wedding party flowers are totally skippable.

    I think it should just be the bride, groom, groomsmen, and bridesmaids. I didnt do any flowers for the parents or anyone else… and it worked out just great!

    I personally think it should be whatever you have the money for in your budget. No flowers – no problem.  A lot of bees make their own flowers out of paper or felt, maybe that is an option 🙂

    just go with whaterver you can afford it will be beautiful tho I do think if you can afford it the bridesmaids will look great with just a sinle flower, I wouldn’t worry about anyone else

    Have you thought about doing paper flowers for your bridal party? They’re adorable and incredibly cheap! If you want fresh flowers, though, I would say bride and groom only is just fine!

    If you’re not afraid of a little DIY, check out Samsclub.com. Their flowers are crazy cheap. You can get 75 roses for cheaper than one bridal bouquet. They get excellent reviews and are absolutely beautiful.

    While I don’t think flowers are necessary, I do think that it would be odd for them to not have anything in their hands.  Like other suggested have you looked into paper flowers?  A friend of mine made her own bouquet and her bm bouquet out of silk flowers.  There is also doing something other than flowers.  Paper fans are popular for outdoorsy weddings.  Also, they could carry a clutch, that could double as their gift from you. 

    Also, I have zero intention of giving either of our parents flowers for my own wedding.  That is something I think everyone can skip if they want.

    I don’t think you NEED to do anything. Do what you have the money for and what you think is best!

    My moms favorite saying through this whole process…

    the only thing you NEED to get married is you, your Fiance, and an officiant. end of story

     

    I saved some serious $$$ by making wedding party flowers out of fabric leftover from my wedding dress. Didnt take long at all!

    I did our bouqets my self and completely skipped boutenierre for anyone who was renting a tux (I only did them for Grandparents).

    If you are open to DIY yourself for the bouqets, a lot of us on the bee have done it and have a lot of great tips. I really didn’t think it was that hard, the flowers turned out great, and it saved a ton of money.

    We skipped the flowers for mom and dad because they didn’t want them and we just had each of our girls carry one big gerber daisy. Another wedding I went to the bride had each of her girls carry one big calla lily. I don’t think it would be a big deal to skip the bridesmaids flowers, but there are always tons of options – take a look and see what works for your budget.

    I used fake flowers from hobby lobby at 50% off and made my own bouquets. I spent under $50 for my bouquet ($25) my bridesmaids ($7 X 2) and boutineers for the groom (leftover materials from others) and groommen ($4 X 2). I had 2 extra boutineers but we didn’t end up using them because my dad didn’t care to wear one and the other one broke.
