Flower Alternatives

Is anyone having a flowerless wedding? I can't bring myself to spend that much money on flowers. So I am looking for alternatives to flowers. So I decided for centerpieces, I won't have any flowers. I am looking into what I can do for the bridesmaids instead of bouquets of flowers. Any recommendations will help.

    Edible centerpieces are pretty cool. Candy or donuts seem to be most popular.
    My friend did a bouquet of buttons her grandmother saved. She glued them to a round styrofoam half circle and had a post for the hands glued to the underside.
    Overall faux flowers bouquets off Etsy or Amazon are cheap as well. There's premade bouquets sometimes at craft stores.

    I am doing a flowerless wedding too because of allergy issues. I am doing brooch bouquets for myself and my girls; my aunt is going to make them for me, I just have to buy the supplies

    I was thinking about doing the faux flowers bouquets. I am looking to see where I can get the best deal.

    I looked up the brooch bouquets. They are sooo pretty.

    How about incorporating lanterns? They're great alternatives!

    That's pretty. Are you having the Bridesmaids walk down with anything?

    I'm planning on artificial/silk flowers. At first I said that I just wanted me and the bridesmaids to have real bouquets. After looking on etsy and amazon, I discovered that there are sooo many beautiful silk bouquets that you can't even tell are fake and for awesome prices!

    I do like the lantern idea. Just not sure how I can incorporate them into the wedding. I do want the Bridesmaids to walk down with something in hands.

    I have one bridesmaid so I’m going with bouqs for those flowers $299 for 3 bouquets, boutonnières and petal. Costco also has flowers for the same price.

    Are you having a theme? What are your wedding colors?

    Do you have a link? I can't seem to find any that stand out to me. At least for a reasonable price.

    How about having greenery "flower" crowns for the BMs?

    Wedding colors are, gold, black, white, and champagne. Kinda going for a Gatsby feel. These are the centerpieces that I attempted to make. I don't have a picture of the ones I made. I found this on pinterest. I took wine bottles, spray painted black and gold, with ostrich feathers coming out of them

    We are going flowerless. I bought a bouquet on amazon but we are skipping the traditional flowers elsewhere.

    We're skipping floral arrangements on the tables and decor.
    I found paper flowers made out of books and comic books. So that's what our bouquets and boutineers will be made of.

    I think I will buy my bouquet on amazon or somewhere else. Just don't know what I should do for the bridesmaids.

    If you look on amazon you will find a ton of options. I only have one "Maid of Bridesmaid" lol and I am getting her a similar bouquet just smaller

    I'll have to do an intense look on amazon. I am just so scared to buy something online. Also I don't know what sizes I should get.
