I’d say go with what makes you happy. Don’t let the florist talk you into a (more expensive) bouquet if you don’t want one. And congrats! That sounds like such a beautiful plan. : )

Your wedding sounds lovely-intimate and personal.  I would do a bouquet.  Just something simple, maybe all one flower.  The innkeeper can hold it for you during the ring exchange.  It’s nice to have something in your hand, especially for pictures.

What about carrying one oversized blossom?  Tree peonies, calla lillies and magnolias are great for that.  You could also have the florist constuct one large flower from the petals of muliple flowers.  Roses are great for that!

What about a nosegay, a tiny little bouquet (also sometimes called a tussie-mussie)?  Or one flower as suggested before?  I find that corsages often get in the way even more than a bouquet and feel a little high-school prom.  However, you should do what you want and flowers in the hair, esp. with a vintage dress, are always nice.

It sounds like it will be beautiful, but can I be ignorant and ask what a hand fasting ceremony is? And yes, the innkeeper can hold the bouquet or whatever you choose to have. I would definitely keep it simple along the lines of the rest of your wedding
