I think you should call the wedding venue and ask them to clarify.  I think most of them put you can’t throw birdseed, rose petals, confetti etc because it is such a mess to clean-up.  But having them as your bouqets, etc. doesn’t make sense.

My Fiance is allergic to flowers so we are doing his bout in silks for sure and may need to do my bouqet since it will be near him.

I wonder if maybe they mean artifical rose petals or something instead of flowers in your bouquet.  I would ask them to be sure because I don’t see why you can’t carry what you want to carry.

do you have to use their florist as part of the contract?  If yes, then that might be why… Saying that you cant use fake flowers or flower substitutes seems over the line though.  Call them BEFORE you sign the contract

maybe you could tell them you are concerned about allergies of one of the wedding guests and wanted to limit the amount of real flowers and use some alternatives.  or could could say you don’t want the natural oils or whatever is on flowers to rub off on your dresses. or you could say something about trying to lessen environmental impact by using the alternative boquets.  or you could argue that the boquets are part of the bridesmaid’s attire, no different than if they carried purses or hankerchiefs instead of flowers. 

no artificial flowers seems a bit silly-but maybe they meant more of ‘no fake flowers from the dollar store’ as opposed to satin and tulle boquets.  if someone was to take that rule literally, would that mean no rhinestone or bead flowers in a tiara?  or no silk roses that are part of the dress? 

is this for a church or a reception hall?

i agree with the other posts….call your venue and and talk to them about the issue with the flowers. that sounds absurd to me that they wouldn’t let you use artificial flowers. btw….your bouquet is gorgeous!!!! i hadn’t even heard of that website before!!!

I’m curious what happened when you spoke with your venue to clarify!
