Not Having Flowers?

Recommended Posts

FI and I are trying to get back to the super simple beach wedding that we originally had planned on having --- we want our decoration to be the beach, the ocean and the sunset.

 

Everything is very neutral so far .. with a palette of brown and blue with touches of white and gold.

 

That being said, do you all think it would look strange if we don't have any flowers? (I may do a hair flower but that's it..)

I don't think it would look strange - that is what is so awesome about a DW - you can do anything you want! If you are worried about it maybe you could carry down a single stem flower - like a cala lilly or something simple.

I would not be able to go without flowers - but that's just me. I love the pop of color you get from them! My flowers were my favorite part of the wedding - and most weddings!

Good luck in your decision & I'm sure whatever you decide will be perfect for you!

I think you can go without flowers if you want. My only concern is if you are not carrying a bouquet, you might feel like you don't know what to do with your hands when you're walking down the aisle.

For what it's worth, I forgot my flowers in my room. So I didn't have any until the reception. The photos were great, even without the flowers.

 

I don't think you need them if you don't want them.

You could always do parasols. Those are usually a cheaper alternative to flowers and a great way to incorporate some additional color. Are you having a wedding party?

I was thinking about parasols, but FI doesn't like them!
I am having a wedding party and they will be wearing coppery color dresses and I am having hair flowers made for them from Etsy which will be a combination of all of our colors. My hair flower will be white with blue accents.

I am not sure what people would do with their hands. When I am walking down the aisle; I think I am okay with not holding anything....

I think you'll be just fine without flowers.

 

Different people equate different things with weddings. For some, the cake must be fruit, you must serve alcohol and flowers are non-negotiable...and that is OK...for THEM.

 

But you envision your wedding differently...and that is OK, too.

 

For example, we are not having any fresh flowers -silks only. One of my guests was aghast when she heard. She told me "You can't have a wedding without REAL flowers!" Yes, we can. I understand that flowers are her ideal. But for me, the only must haves on my wedding day are my FI's love and God's presence. The rest is a bonus.

 

The beauty of a DW is that it is unique in its own right...and so it frees you from at-home wedding "must haves" and "must dos". In a tropical paradise, you are not tied to tradition, but free to celebrate YOUR DAY, YOUR WAY.

 

Enjoy your flower-free wedding.

I'm with you - for me, flowers are a big expense that you get little value from. I'm not having any other flowers or decorations other than my bouquet and the attendant bouquets. The Vegas chapel I'm using looks nice enough.

 

My feeling is on flowers is that if you have them, people might notice them for a second or two, and then completely forget them, and if you don't have them, no one would notice, especially since you're on a beach. In all the weddings I've been to, I have never noticed the presence of lack of flowers - they are a completely forgettable aspect of a wedding for me. However, I do think it would be nice to carry *something* though - One thing people look for is the bride's bouquet. A single cala lilly as suggested earliar would be lovely.

 

I also personally need something to do with my hands - I'll be nervous enough as it is without trying to figure out what the deal is with my hands. OTOH, I'm walking down the aisle unaccompanied - if you have someone giving you away, it's probably easier to deal with than my situation.

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
