What is everyone’s thoughts on bridesmaid bouquets? Any wedding I’ve been to the bouquets have been lost or left somewhere, so I sort of feel like they’re a waste of money. Is anyone using any alternates? Or do you think it’s a must for the bridesmaids to have them?
I'm doing a small bouquet thats made of dried floral elements but one of my bridesmaid for her wedding had her bridesmaid hold a single sunflower which was a cute idea and her wedding was so beautiful!
Stephanie, I LOVE THIS!!! I wish I had thought of this. I have a collection of lanterns. I'm having two for memorial seating and then lanterns going down the aisle. But this would have been a perfect idea.
I went with rings, this way the girls can keep them and hang them on their walls or do whatever they want after the fact, or they can give them ack to me and I'll hang them. Since I am not huge on flowers this is what they are getting, it matches my bouquet. My venue also offers bouquets so I will be using their bouquets for the bouquet toss and memorial seating for my mom and his grandfather. Some only do 1 lily, or one flower, it's your wedding it's up to you what you want them to wear and hold.
Definitely not a must have but it's something to do with their hands when they walk down the aisle. We used our bouquets for the head table after.
We had vases with water on the head table so everyone could put their flowers in the water to keep them fresh. The next day when we were cleaning up I took them all home and one of my bridesmaids took all the bouquets and pressed/dried them.
My moh is having a bouquet. I think is just goes with the wedding and it matches my bouquet and gives it that pop of color. But honestly do what you wanna do if you don't want to have your bridesmaids to carry one, you don't have to!
My moh will be leaving it on the head table for the evening for the reception to make sure it doesn't get lost
