I am sorry, but I have to agree with your mom. Maybe have the girls just carry one flower or three flowers. The flowers can just be wrapped with a simple ribbon with a bow.

I agree with your mom as well. I’ve never been a fan of black and brown mixed together. They just don’t seem to go well in my opinion. Fake flowers or single flowers are a good alternative option.

I would think it would be YOU that should stand out, and the brown pinecones against your dress would be beautiful!  And seriously, you`re the bride, and the star of the show.

The brown pinecones against your maids dresses would also be lovely, and would be a perfect backdrop to you 🙂

I would use a combination of pine cones and real touch flowers to get a little more variation in texture.

That being said, you could always appease your mom by having a lighter colored ribbon stem, or lighter colored greenery in your maids bouquets.

I love the looks of pine cone bouquets! They’re interesting in of themselves. 🙂

I think the idea is good. Maybe you could add some other tree objects to them or maybe some long grasses such as wheat sheaths or something. Just to break it up a little and add a little bit to it. But if it’s what you like then you should stick to it!

Maybe you can add some red hypericum berries to it so it’s not just all brown.

I think it’s cute! I would probably put some dark green glitter on them for some color and shine but they look great plain too!

I love the idea of the pinecones but I would mix other things into the bouquets to give them a little life.http://static.weddingwire.com/static/vendor/170001_175000/170708/thumbnails/600x600_1260139474629-2009WinterPineConeBouquet.jpg
