Interesting…but what will the bridesmaids do with their hands? The main plus of bouquets IMO is that it gives you something to hold on to while you’re standing.

The pic you posted looks perfect for a Hawaiian or a beach wedding to me. Reminds me of leis.

I have never seen anything like this!  Though I agree with Chelseamorning–it may seem a little bit awkward to not hold anything in their hands.

What do your bridesmaids think of the idea?

I have to agree w/ chelseamorning and Lattelove – I would feel awkward up there w/ nothing to hold.

I guess I should have explained – we’re not having a traditional ceremony so my bridesmaids will not enter on their own or stand in front of a crowd.

Instead of my father "walking me down the aisle", my two bridesmaids and I will walk the distance of the castle drive together and once we arrive, I’ll join my H2B and they will join the rest of the crowd for the ceremony.

Ps. I want to get flowers for them to signify their status but a bouquet just doesn’t make sense because they will need their hands free -the champagne will be served immediately following the "I dos"!

I’ve seen Bridesmaid or Best Man with corsage and no bouquets.  I don’t have any pictures though.  As a guest, I don’t think I would really notice.  As a Bridesmaid or Best Man, the only time I "needed" to hold the bouquet in the ceremony.  I don’t think bouquets are a requirement, but I would still ask your BMs what they like.

This is the 1st I’m seeing of these ‘flower bracelets’ and I really like them. I need something for the woman holding poles of my Chuppah and that might be just the thing! Thanks so much for sharing.

I think that’s a really cute idea 🙂 especially if you’re not having the walk down the aisle kind of ceremony

We were married on Valentine’s Day this year, so wrist corsages for the girls saved us money on flowers and kept their hands free for hugs, holding baskets and programmes, carrying the veil and all the other little tasks bridesmaids so graciously perform.

We avoided the girls feeling awkward without bouquets by getting the guys involved. Weddings around here tend to have one to three attendants on each side; we broke the mold with three for him and five for me. The two groomsmen left FI’s side to ‘collect’ two of the girls each and escort them down the aisle, then the Bridesmaid or Best Man escorted the MoH, followed by moi. 

Let’s see if uploading will work today. Hang on…

I like the ones that hang down a little bit as well – shorter but similar to the single rose that cristina aguilera wore in her wedding. or just a simple ribbon around the wrist with some flowers on the top portion – i think i am diy’ing the mother’s crosages that way.
