Who doesn’t love fresh flowers? They’re beautiful. They smell lovely. When arranged in a gorgeous bouquet, they make quite the statement when carried by your bridesmaids down the aisle. And bridesmaid’s bouquets are a long-standing tradition. But a flower bouquet isn’t the only option. Nowadays, brides are choosing other pretty trinkets for their bridesmaids to carry down the aisle.
If you still want to include fresh flowers, a single eye-catching blossom can be just as effective.
Fans are the perfect accompaniment to an outdoor summer wedding.
Parasols are another hot and sunny day option, and make for some wonderful photos.
Ornate lanterns are a unique choice, and your bridesmaids can display them in their homes after your wedding is over.
Candles would be lovely for a nighttime ceremony.
A wedding is a party, after all, so why not try some festive balloons?
Pinwheels would be perfect for a breezy day.
For the bride looking to add a little whimsy to the wedding day, paper hearts are a quick, easy, and affordable option – and so cute!
Feathers are an elegant alternative.
Finally, I’m a fan of anything practical and reusable, so these clutches are a wonderful idea. I know I would love to have one of these!
How do you feel about the non-floral alternative for bridesmaids? Do you have any other ideas for a fun, pretty and special bouquet alternative?
