Cute clutches/wristlets for the girls in your colors? If its outside maybe parasols?(cute photo op)

DIY Fabric flowers for both?

Or if you did still want some flowers, a single flower for each girl, each guy.

The candles would be neat for an inside wedding with the lights dimmed.

On another thread someone directed people to samsclub.com. They have a whole bridal set up for $199 and it was quite nice! I’m trying to find something similar in Canada.

We elimated flowers in other ways–our girls still carried small bouquets and our guys had bouts that were made of berries, wheat, etc. We got married in October, so it went well with our fall/rustic bouquets. If you have no flower budget, I would say go with something that fits your theme–if you have a small flower budget, I would at least get a few quotes…most florists can work with your price (ie: make you a $30 bouquet that is a mini version of the $120 bouquet they will initially try to sell you). We also saved a lot of money by going with an organic local florist, she hand picks all of the flowers in the week before the wedding, so we used only flowers that would be local to our area, kept our prices very low.

I pretty much eliminated the majority of flowers. They’re not important to me and they will just die and be thrown away. So I’m sticking to my bouquet, bridesmaid bouquet, and boutonniere’s for the groom and one groomsman. That’s it and they will be DIY.  I’m going to a wholesale flower place with a friend and she will be helping me. I don’t have many single friends so I don’t need a throwaway bouquet, we’re not going to do corsages for the mother’s either.  I’m DIY’ing my centerpieces.

I think skipping the bouts is a great idea.  I don’t even think you need the pocket squares, but if you like the look, go for it.  I didn’t want to spend a ton on flowers, so we ended up using baby’s breath for the bridesmaids.  We were going to DIY, it would have cost less than $10 per bridesmaid, but the florist said she could do them for $20, so she did.  I like the candle idea, it could be really dramatic if it’s in the evening and the lights are low.  One of the blogger bees (cannot remember her name, she’s cute, Canadian, former ballerina) had a Christmas time wedding and her ladies carried lanterns.  It was very elegant.
