    I am having problems trying to figure out if I "really" want to fork out the extra cash for bouquets and bouts for the wedding party.

    They are pricey and I think that they would be a pain in the butt to travel with AND to keep up with on the big day. I know that I want one, but would it be weird if I had my girls walk down with the cute parasail’s that I bought? I got them super cheap and they are fun. Plus they will look great with the pictures and then we can just...throw them away...?

    Also, with the money that I save on flowers...I would like to get them a nicer gift.

    Is this weird? LOL?

      I don't think that is weird at all! I think it is a great idea! I am thinking of getting nice fans for my bridemaids to carry instead!

        That actually sounds like a great idea! Plus the cute parasail’s will last...unlike the flowers.

          I am in the same boat.. I have 7 bmaids and 7 groomsman, although we werent going to give the groomsman bouts anyways since they aren't wearing jackets. SO just FI will wear one. And for my girls, I was thinking of still getting them bouquets but then using their bouquets as the centerpeices for the reception. I dont know if that is 'cheap' or wrong to do but thats probably the way I am going to go. I have been a bmaid enough times to know that once I get to the reception I drop my bouquet and never touch it again.

            Nadine, WOW! You have a large bridal pary! I want to get the goomsmen something. I have been looking at Esty.com to see if I can find something a little funky for the guys (they aren't wearing jackets either). As for the girls, I dont think that is cheap AT ALL! It's a great idea! :) I will talk to the "main man" (my boo) and see if he has an opinion. lol - we will see how that goes. :) If he doesn't have an opinion, then it's ALL in my hands!

              ARe your guys wearing dress shirts with a pocket? Maybe you could do like a pocket scarf to add some color? I dont know how that would look tho?

              good luck either way :)
