I would fidget with my hands too much. 😉 But I’m considering this. We are going with a brand-spanking new florist and I can’t help but think, what if the flowers don’t show? And if they don’t? Well, I’m not that worried about it. I don’t think it will actually look all that bad. Whatevs.

If you don’t want to carry anything, I don’t think it’s that big of a deal. Just figure out what you will do with your hands instead. 😉

I think you could pull it off – the bridesmaids might look a little too much like soldiers if they don’t have anything in their hand – but if you pair them with a groomsman down the aisle it might work out better.

I am with marigold on this, I wouldn’t be able to keep my hands still without something in them..hehe…. But it is totally your call.  If you think you don’t neeed nor want one, go for it.

if you’re wanting to ditch the flowers but worried about fidgeting, there are lots of alternatives of what you can carry down the aisle!

a clutch purse (you’d be the only bride on the face of the earth who actually had a reason to buy a bridal clutch), candle lantern, parasol, or candle-in-vase are all things I’ve heard of others doing.

I hate to suggest this, because they make my skin crawl, but if you just don’t like the look of bouquets you could also have your girls carry fresh floral pomanders. (oh pomanders; the bane of my bridal-existance…)

I don’t think it’s strange – I’m considering not having one.  We aren’t having a bridal party either. If you are walking in with your Fiance, I don’t think you’d miss it at all.  

re: colors – definitely white!  It will make your B&W theme pop even more!
