What can I use instead of flowers for a bouquet? I have really bad hayfever and I dont want to spend £100s on fake flowers as I dont like flowers
If you have know someone who can knit or crochet you could do that, I am doing that due to my hay-fever x
I had my bridesmaids holding one of my dogs each instead of boquets haha
I made myself a brooch bouquet. It was stunning
my friends had paperfolded flowers
I spoke to my florist as I never wanted to flowers but my partner does and she has picked flowers that won’t be too bad. Otherwise I was going to have a brooch bouquet
Beads, buttons, paper craft, ribbons, have a look on Pinterest for different ideas
I have seen people on Pinterest who have them made out of paper from thier favourite book or comic if they are in to super heroes c
If u go on google images and type in alternative bridal bouquet loads of ideas will pop up for u or pinstrest x
Silk flowers. I'm having me and my bridesmaids in silk bouquets with silver brooches
Ball and chain lol... Paper craft flowers. Nothing. Pinterest is good for ideas xx
Country Baskets has amazing cheap fake flowers. My bouquets for my bridemaids cost £5 each!
I had silk flowers for my bouquet with my first marriage x
My friend had buttons for hers and us bridesmaids. Was great cause we could keep them afterwards
My friend had a brooch bouquet it was amazing I'm going to use hers
I made my sister a brooch bouquet :)
One on my friends made me this beautiful artificial bouquet! Gordon Donaldson
Different broches or buttons cam look really effective and cam be picked up cheap groom charity shops. X
I had silk flowers - for my bouquet, 2 for the bridesmaids and I think 10 button holes it came to less than £100. But equally you don’t HAVE to carry anything. Depending on the weather you can hide your hands in a muff, or a photo of gone but not forgotten ones, or something that’s a hidden joke between you and your partner. It is your day, you don’t have to do anything you don’t want to do!
I was exactly the same! Bad hayfever and really not a lover of flowers so I had paper ones made and I love them! X
I used Lasting Petals for my flowers. So professional and so wonderfully priced! All artificial flowers and they've turned out beautifully. Would highly recommend!! X
I too suffer with allergies and didn't want flowers but I found a company on Facebook that does different things using paper that I liked the idea of, they're called Paper Blossoms. X
iv seen few people use these kinds of hoop garlands, you can put fake of paper flowers on them, or even just ribbons
Ribbons, buttons, feathers and jewellery bouquets are all lovely alternatives. I've seen dougnut and pizza bouquets too. You could have a succulents bouquet. Do you have a hobby you could showcase, for example, if you knit/crochet, you could have a yarn bouquet. You may even want to forego a bouquet and carry an object, such as a beautiful bridal clutch or a lantern
Book pages made into flowers x
Make your own origami flowers with the colors you want!
Have a look at this page...
I had knitted/crocheted flowers as I didn’t want to spend loads on something that only lasts the day!
Fake flowers aren’t expensive, I only paid £100 for mine and that was 5 ushers, 5 bridemaids, 7 table centre pieces, bride bouquet, grooms flowers and mother of the bride, and 2 flower girl flowers x
I used artificial ones I had made! That’s my bouquet on the table
Ive ordered my bouquet off esty a seller called petalspolly very reasonably priced x
Lanterns are always nice if you want something different. I personally made myself roses out of book pages and dipped them with water colours. It was pretty and I used lanterns with led string lights and coloured fake petals in :)
I've had paper bouquets made by a woman on etsy. Have one large flower instead of a bunch of small ones, i adore them
Pretty cactus? Or maybe jeweled things, or butterflies or something? Or even ivy and ferns xoxox
I used fake flowers from Amazon and it cost me in total 12 earthly pounds. I arranged them myself and then stuck on brooches from all the women in my family. They won't go off, my husband is massively allergic to pollen so it didn't affect him and I get to keep it forever.
We got married by the sea and I had a sea shell bouquet made by a woman on Etsy. I've seen button bouquets as well if that floats your boat :)
I went with nothing, no flowers at wedding at all. Did anyone notice 🤔🤔 Nope!
What about a sparkle bouquet, you can get them online and they look stunning
If you don’t like flowers, don’t have any. If you really want a bouquet of some description , paper roses out of your favourite book pages, buttons, ribbons, felt,
A pet? No seriously what ever you want. A lantern. Balloons. A bag. Whatever works for you.
I dont like flowers though so it's not just the allergies so silk/paper etc it's still a flower
Hi I create paper flowers here's my page www.facebook.com/paperblossoms12 xxx
Fake flowers, I'm getting some so I can keep mine. Or feather fans are cute, there are some nice hand fans on etsy.

You can get them in all kinds of materials and if your crafty you can decorate with pearls,gem etc.
A brooch bouquet looks amazing, if you make it yourself it's nowhere near what a professional charges!! Me and my sister have made mine for next year (wanted to have a go and see how easy it is!) With materials from hobby craft and brooches from charity shops, some left from my grandmother and lots from online (wish and eBay have thousands!!) Can't wait to carry it down the aisle! X
I had button & felt bouquets made, as well as matching buttonholes for the ushers. The bridal party were able to take them home as keepsakes too.
My maid of honour runs a company called forever flowers and has done all my bouquets and button holes using handmade silk flowers
A friend and I made my daughters bouquet out of fake flowers last year.Tomorrow I am getting wed and using her bouquet as something borrowed..
Depends what time of year your wedding is but you could carry a lacy parasol or something similar x
Buttons can be quite cheap
A puppy .....
An alpaca .....
A Special helium balloon ....
I know you said no paper, but not sure if this style would be less flowery?
I've known someone have a cheap bouquet and cover it with brooches and badges representing family who couldn't be with them
I had a jewellery bouquet was £150
Or just don't have anything!
I’ve made my flowers by crocheting them
Depends, if you are religious person then maybe a small white Bible and a ribbon that matchs your bridesmaids dress colour.

Why don't you just not carry anything then decorate with books and teacups or something along those lines?
My daughter had a button bouquet it was beautiful
I got my bouquet and all button holes needed for main wedding part for under 50 pounds
Maybe you could get like lanterns for you bridesmaids to hold with a fake tea light in or a real one but would look beautiful all lit up together in a line 😊
I spent £45 on faux flowers, two bouquets and 4 buttonholes
Use like something you love! Like example;
I love pizza (really bad example) but you could have a bouquet like that like?
Marion Hopkins does beautiful brooch bouquets
Hi! My brooch bouquets start from £165 but I also offer a make up only service where you can supply me with your own brooches. I also make Feather bouquets which are really popular at the moment. Gail x Www.facebook.com/floriodesigns
My friend and her husband are very into music but have totally different tastes, he's a metal fan she's into musicals so she had her bouquets made out of music sheets for both of their favourite songs.
Im having photoframes with typography in then saying here comes the bride
I'm in the process of making my own brooch bouquet with my mother's help we have been trawling ebay and charity shops for brooches my reasons for no flowers is not the same as you it's because I can't justify spending hundreds of pounds on flowers which die!!
I'm enjoying putting together something that is really personal to me and spending time with my mum in the process!!
I used the foam flowers which looked real and were so cheap along with brooches. Or you can make a button bouquet.
How many people skipped the part where she doesn’t want flowers even if they’re fake. 😂
Just don’t use anything. You’ll have someone on your arm anyway (I’m guessing) so you won’t feel bare. Don’t waste money. If you have someone very special to you who you wish were with you. You could have a frame with a photo of them with ribbon to hold on to. It’s not my preference as I don’t have anyone who id have but it’s an option If you were very close to someone who has passed.
I had lanterns for my bridesmaids
I got my wedding bouquet from here- I got some jewellery from special loved ones woven into the bouquet. I loved it! And I still have it and it looks as beautiful as it did on my wedding day nearly 4 years ago!
These bad boys!
