Me, me, ME.

It’s actually a British thing and I’m getting one. I absolutely adore them… but I think they need to fit the wedding theme. Mine is Edwardian so they do indeed fit.

Mine is Victorian and yes, I have heard of them, and am considering them, but we will see. Persnally, I don’t think they are cheesy. I am not sure what you would consider noncheesy. Some other ideas might be fans, parasols, wrist corsages, etc. You could ask your florist again, if she has any more ideas for you.

A tussy mussy is really a lovely idea.  They are really small bouquets that are normally put in a silver metal bouquet holder.  They won’t look like a traditional bridesmaid bouquet because they aren’t meant to be carried with two hands, but rather with one.  Women used to carry them to be able to smell a pleasant scent rather than the sewer smells of Victorian times…  (They were the original air refresher!)  They aren’t very big, so they aren’t the best idea for a bridesmaid, but for the mothers or grandmothers they would be lovely!

I feel that same way about corsages. I am so glad I ran into this post because I have been trying to think of something else to do. I just feel like corsages are dated and VERY high school (kinda cheesy) No offense to anyone who likes them this is my personal opinion.
