I’d have music of some sort, – doesn’t  matter there  is no aisle , just  on an Ipod or something.

And maybe a single flower or two in your hands , not a  bouquet  or anything.

The no flowers I think is doable, but I think it might be a little bit of “awkward silence” with no music.

I actually think if you’re getting married on the beach the no music thing wouldn’t be so weird. Beaches are pretty loud places in my experience, what with waves crashing and all… unless it’s one of those super calm beaches, I bet it will be fine.

As for the no flowers thing, is someone walking you down the aisle? If so that would tie up at least one arm and probably won’t look empty. If you’re coming down the aisle by yourself though it may look a bit odd.

You could easily do ipod music if you wanted, doesnt have to be too fancy. 

For your hands, If you have your arm hooked with your dad, your other arm could rest your other hand there too (youd be the old lady in this https://thumb7.shutterstock.com/display_pic_with_logo/2465024/344337719/stock-photo-teenage-girl-helping-senior-woman-to-carry-shopping-344337719.jpg

You could hold something small, you could always pick up a bouquet from the market the day before, it doesnt have to be a whole professional BRIDAL bouquet. You could hold a parisol, a clutch (maybe with a fancy pen that you’ll sign your papers with), a lantern, a candle, a balloon, heck you could bring a bottle of champagne down the aisle and pour it when you get to the altar. 

The ONLY reason I’m having a bouquet is because I’m worried about the same thing haha. I’m already awkward, so holding something will distract my hands.

Ultimately, people are there to see you get married. Most of them are going to be stoked to get a trip to paradise in the bargain. Just take some deep breaths.

You can get a pretty good quality bluetooth speaker for around $30. Download something to your phone and have one of the guests start the music when you get to the top of the aisle. Personally, I’d feel like something important was missing if there wasn’t some music for the processional. If you’re doing a Hawaii beach wedding, I’d reccomend this:

As far as your hands, if you are being walked down the aisle, you don’t need to do anything with them. Link arms with your dad and let the other hand stay relaxed. However, if you decide you HAVE to have something, I hear they have some pretty amazing flowers in Hawaii. 😉 Just find a local florist or farmers market and get a handful of something pretty.
