I think it’s a nice alternative, and you might even be able to dress up the fans with ribbons or a flower or two depending on your budget.

Those are really good ideas!The pearls are a classic!

Have you thought about DIYing the boquets? I’m going through http://www.growersbox.com. All you need are flowers, floral tape, ribbon, and pins. You could probably do something pretty cheap! = D There are all sorts of tutorials.

I think that’s super cute! I also love the idea of a single flower – I’ve seen that in a few weddings, and it looks VERY good!

Have you considered baby’s breath bouquets?

Very cute! At first I wasn’t sure, but the picture is def. cute. Maybe yall could have a fun night & make the paper fans?! Each bridesmaid could make their invididual fan, BUT make them somewhat the same so they fit into your theme & don’t look out of place.

I think it depends on the location of the wedding. Those fans work in the picture because it’s outdoors. I don’t know if I’d go with paper fans indoors.

I love the baby’s breath bouquet. You could also do very small nosegays for the BMs.

The baby’s breath is a great idea!  You can even have some (or all) dyed if you wanted.  If its an outdoor wedding you can do parasol’s too…Usually under $10 per parasol….

We’re on a tight budget as well and decided to do an alternative to bridesmaids bouquets as well. I ended choosing clutches with a silk flower corsage on the front. I’m working on them now and it’s turning out pretty well.

I love the fan idea, I think that you could find some great options and you could decorate them. I do agree with one the pp, I think the fans are a great idea so long as they will fit with the location of the wedding.

I think that is a really cool idea!  Flowers just get thrown out anyway, but you could personalize their fans and make them a keepsake!

I think that this is gonna be a new trend. lol. I already got my fans for the bridesmaids, it is asian fans, I put dangling crystals on it to dress it up, but my theme for the wedding is asian, so it is a double happiness (used for weddings) paper fans that also double as favors.  =)   check out asianideas.com for great fans.

I love the baby’s breath bouquet. I carried one in a wedding about 3 years ago and it’s sitting up on top of my tall dresser. It dried beautiful. The bride made them all herself, I think she said she paid about $3.00 each. Can’t beat that price!
