Flowers

I'm having four bridesmaids, one of which is quite androgynous and would feel more comfortable in a suit rather than a dress. I absolutely have no problem with this at all (and in fact the other girls really like the suit themselves!) but I'm struggling to work out what to do about flowers for her. I'm planning on making the bridesmaid bouquets myself and already had a specific look in mind and I'm not sure it would look the same with a suit. Should I still do the same flowers, or would it be better to do something different for her?

Maybe a buttonhole that matches?

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

Perhaps do her a buttonhole instead

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

Could she not just have a button hole to match or something on her wrist

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

A fancy buttonhole?

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

Ask her? Could always do button hole or a top/bowler hat with flower rim?

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

Speak to her. If she's happy with a bouquet it'll look just as nice if she's in a suit. Or a buttonhole like others have said - although it is nice for bridesmaids to have something to hold

A corsage perhaps?

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

Think outside the box ..... a hat or a walking stick type of thing with flowers round it umbrellas are a good idea with flowers but think of something different and talk to the bridesmaids

I had 2 bridesmaids in 50s style dresses with petticoats and one in waistcoat and suit trousers and bow tie... She had a button hole rather than flowers she looked ace šŸ‘Œ

I'd have the same bouquet as the bridesmaids in dresses personally. I think a button hole will make her look more apart of the grooms party X

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

Or maybe a flower crown?! X

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

Can you ask do to half and half? Shirt, waist coat and jacket with a tulle skirt?

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

My bridesmaids had a
Fresh flower corsage for there wrists

UKbride Member 15 Jan 2020

Corsage?

UKbride Member 16 Jan 2020

Ask her about it. Maybe you could do a button hole instead, or a corsage. Show her your ideas, and ask for her opinion xx

UKbride Member 16 Jan 2020

A nice chest corsage might be a good idea

UKbride Member 16 Jan 2020

Have a bouquet ! It will still be super nice, there are some stunning photos of bridesmaids in suits if you Google it x

UKbride Member 16 Jan 2020

I would do something simular

UKbride Member 16 Jan 2020

Maybe a really special button hole instead of a bouquet and a corsage to match

UKbride Member 16 Jan 2020

I had a male bridesmaid who wore a suit and carried a bouquet šŸ’ as well as having a button hole. I think it's best to have the bouquet otherwise you don't know what to do with your hands šŸ‘šŸ˜‚

My best friend wore trousers and a shirt and carried a bouquet to be honest I didn't care how it looked I just wanted her to be comfortable. She lost the bouquets very quickly after the ceremony šŸ¤£

UKbride Member 16 Jan 2020

Just do the same

UKbride Member 16 Jan 2020

I say have them all with bouquets. Or you could go the "sex and the city 2" way and have them like Carrie Bradshaw and make them wear weird tiaras and button hole. Away with traditional! I think your bridesmaids are giving you an opportunity to go outside the box and have fun. TAKE IT!!! when I finally get to have a wedding party, since my husband and his friends and sin are Scottish they'll all be wearing kilts, my bridesmaids may end up wearing suits (and so might I)šŸ˜šŸ˜šŸ˜

I would maybe do a button hole for her, the same flowers/colours but just scaled down the attach to her suit? We did this for my wife's 'woman of honour'

UKbride Member 16 Jan 2020

I'm loving the comments about people saying "they won't know what to do with their hands"

I had 3 bridesmaids and a maid of honour.
The youngest bridesmaid and maid of honour both held the bouquet with two hands, the oldest 2 out of all of them held it one handed and was swinging the other hand by their side, was hilarious when I saw it in the pictures

UKbride Member 16 Jan 2020

Iā€™d do the same

UKbride Member 17 Jan 2020

I cam we across the idea for a jumpsuit recently. Have struggled to find one one the right colour, but felt it was a very cool idea!

UKbride Member 18 Jan 2020

A corsage on their wrist? Our parents had these instead of on their dresses for difference
