    I made all our flowers myself, out of tissue paper!

    I have seen girls carry clutches instead of flowers… could be a low cost alternative?

    Cluctches as pp mentioned are great.  Also, you could opt to have your bridesmaids carry a single flower, like one long stem rose, a single calla lily, or something similar.  Or you could even opt for small inexpensive wrist corsages as a less expensive alternative to a bouquet.

    @DeathByDesign:  You had the most beautiful wedding!  I always love your pictures.  *ahh* 


    Sorry, OP, didn’t meant to get off track.  I think you should carry something or you’ll probably later wish you had (along with your bridesmaids).  I’m planning DIY fresh flowers and ribbon, very plain and whatever is in season at my market at the time.  I don’t think it will cost much. I’ve seen a lot of lovely ways to DIY faux flowers as well, if that’s a possibility for you.

    I’ve seen pictures of bridesmaids carrying oversized pinwheels!

    I think many brides are just worried that the women wont know what to do with their hands if they dont have flowers. I have seen clutches, parasols, pomanders, bibles etc carried as an alternative.

    We’re doing lanterns! They can be colorful and personal. Plus, if you’re having a night wedding, it can be super romantic.

    @Pappy8:  I don’t think it would look weird. But, if you are worried about it, could you have your BM’s carry the flowers that will then go into the centerpieces?

    @Cappugcino:  I agree with carrying a single flower. This way they are not bare and awkward and yet your still saving money

    my BM’s had bouquets, but while purchasing flowers i saw that corsages were a lot less expensive than the bouquets, so that could be an option
