Not Having 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.
Thanks for putting it in prospective BeautifulBrideToBe... You have hit the nail on the head!
For me, I can envision everything ... with both myself and the girls just having gorgeous handmade feather hairflowers as adornment.

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.
lolkitteh.. I LOVE your name!! I am obsessed with LOL Cats; one of my friends and I have days where that is the only way we communicate via email.

Anyway, I agree.. I doubt anyone will notice if I have flowers or not. I was married once before and I was so nervous; I walked down the aisle without my flowers. Noone noticed but me! LOL.

Thanks everyone for reassuring me!

You're the first one on this board to get my username!

 

Anyway, congratulations and good luck with the wedding - it'll be beautiful without a single petal. :-)

Guess what I'm finding out on the forum is that whatever YOU want to do is OK....some brides are way too picky & must be so stressed out by the time their big day comes they can't even enjoy themselves. Do what YOU want & don't be swayed by what others think you should have....its YOUR wedding ! RELAX, everything will be fine....Don't "sweat the small stuff"

    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B
    • @JessicaCV - How was your wedding experience? We're getting married there in November - Would love to pick your brain about your experience and the planning process! - Kian
    • They forgot the wedding cake topper   Okay, so no big deal - just a once in a lifetime moment. The upsetting part is the wedding coordinator, Dionne, did not seem at all concerned about the mistake. The only reason we got an apology was because we happened to run into her the night before we left. Our wedding was on Saturday we left Wednesday morning. We were told we could escalate our concern to Riu corporate, the wedding coordinator doesn’t have a supervisor on site. Riu corporate said they did their best and apologized. Brides, go to Jamaica, get married, but do yourself a favor and do not go to a Riu resort, especially not Riu Negril. I am certain there are other resorts that would have been in touch immediately and tried to make up for their mistake. Not Riu.
