If you don’t want  one, don’t have one!
If you really want to hold something you could carry a candle or a book? but its really not necessary

There is no law saying you need one. Don’t want one? Go on with your bad self.

I carried a single lavender rose – no regrets.

Yeah if it’s not important to you just carry a single flower. I promise you’ll want something to do with the hand not around the person walking you. Unless you decide to have 2 people walk you then you really dont have to hold flowers!

No you don’t walk around with it all night, but when taking photos it gives you something to do with your hands and a focal point. It’s actually nice to have a “prop” to pose with at times.

Up to you. I have never, ever thought any bouquets have detracted from the dress though. I actually love bouquets, so it would be weird to me if the bride didn’t have one. There are lots of simple designs that you can have. But at the end, it’s up to you.

What I love to do is look up traditions for weddings. Bouquets/wedding flwoers were because way back in the day, we were not as fresh and clean. So, we placed flowers around on the big day to help with the smell. 

I assume you will be showering, wearing deodorant, maybe even perfume. While flowers are beautiful, they are not needed if you do not want them.

I think bouquets are really beautiful and I absolutely want one so I have something to do with my hands! Haha my bridesmaids are going to have flowers in their hair instead of a bouquet though. 

Dont do something your not fussed on just because it’s traditional! Not a good reason for anything.

My bouquet made me really happy and it added a pop of color to our photos so I was happy with it.  However if you arent in love with the idea its totally up to you!!

This may be too similar to a bouquet for your taste but I thought this was a neat alternative.  I do think you should carry something to busy your hands.

id feel super awkward without one beacuse I wouldnt know what to do with my hands. It’s totally a personal preference though. Other alternatives if youre just not into the big bouquet of flowers you could always do a single flower, ive also seen brides carry a lantern down the aisle and it’s magical.

I saw somewhere recently where everyone carried a puppy.


Just sayin.

Have you looked at non flower bouquets? Brooch ones are really nice, or something else depending on the style of you dress/wedding.

You don’t have to! You can carry a single flower, a brooch bouquet, a latern, a clutch, a feather fan, or nothing at all. It’s totally up you.
