Alternative Bridesmaid Bouquets

Many brides today are becoming more and more creative with their weddings, trying to get as far away from the conventional as possible. Flowers are no exception; a new trend that I've been seeing is alternative bridesmaid bouquets. 

There can be different reasons to have your bridesmaids carry something other than a $75 bouquet down the aisle:
  • You want to do something different
  • Your budget doesn't allow for it
  • Traditional bouquets don't go with the overall theme and feel of your wedding
Whatever your reason is, I've found some cute alternatives to bridesmaid bouquets for you to check out

Balloons give a wedding a more playful, fun feel.

Parasols are good for outdoor weddings.

A basket with simple flowers is good for a barn yard, garden, or vintage wedding.

Carrying lanterns down the aisle would be great to set the mood for an evening wedding.

Instead of a bouquet, bridesmaids can carry a single statement flower.

Pinwheels provide a cute, whimsical feel for a wedding.

Wheat bouquets are perfect if you have a more earthy, rustic theme.

Getting married around Valentine's Day? Why not have your bridesmaids carry paper hearts?
