We get married in July 2018. We have 5 bridesmaids ranging from age of 13-35 my question is they all want bags as they are older would you compelety do away with flowers for them or do a wirst flower? On a low budget.
I would definitely keep some sort of flower like the rist idea or maybe add the flowers into their hair ? Hope you come up with some idea xx
You can get corsages that attach to clutch bags.
Best of both worlds x
Is there a reason (aside from budget) that they can’t have both? Mine will have flowers to walk down the aisle but I wouldn’t expect them to be carrying bags down the aisle...they’re having little bags which I guess can be placed on their reserved seats during the ceremony and then the flowers will be put down anyway
I got my bags in Poundland and kept then having their bouquets aswell xxx
A small flower piece attached to a clutch bag may be suitable 👰
Wrist flower with a bag is a great idea that way u still get part of original wedding with a twist
Don't have any bridesmaids at all. After being married before I now know there isn't really a lot of point and it's just more expense
I wouldn't be a fan of my bridesmaids carrying a bag down the aisle. If they want one they can buy their own and get it after the service x
Years ago (70s) as a bridesmaid I had a small puff bag (circle of material pulled together at the top with cord or ribbon) it matched the dresses
We have a whooping 10 bridesmaids and they decided during the dress fittings that they are sliding their phones and lippy in the back of their bouquets as we cant see them...
I think they should leave bags with family members during the ceremony.
I've been on Amazon for wrist flowers and paid 1.87 each ..... fabulous as Well
Mine all had a small bag that they had on their wrists (wrist bag) still had flowers, it worked! Have a lovely day xx
A clutch bag with a corsage on it perhaps?
I didn’t have any flowers for my older bridesmaid they all had clutch bags just me and my flower girl had flowers x
Can you get them bags with a flower on?
why do.they need or want bags? They have flowers by tradition. if they have phones erc they can get someone to look.after a bag for them till after the ceremony a d pbotos.
It didn't even remotely cross my mind that they would wish to take bags down the aisle. No need for that brief amount of time, so I won't be working around it.
My bridesmaid had a bag (she provided) and her flowers, her bag was put in the care of a family member during the ceremony and she had it on her for the reception. If you're on a tight budget explain this to them and let them provide their own, it's not like it'll be in pictures or have to match x
Not sure as to why they’ll be needing a bag for the ceremony?
The reception I get they’ll want their phones etc.
Maybe see if one of their family members or partners will have the bag during the ceremony? Then it’s less of a worry for you.
Also I love wrist corsages I think they are really sweet and can be effective.
I have gone with bags too and none of the girls wanted flowers so win-win
I'm having two maid of honours and a flower girl.
The two older ones are having a posh handbag (from ebay haha) with a wrist flower on a bracelet/bangle.
That way it's A cheap, and B After the photos and when they have had enough they can take the flowers off... x
