    Hi ladies!

    So I was wondering if anyone has any ideas, or has used anything as an alternative to flowers? Like a silk fan? Seashell? For the bridesmaids/junior bridesmaids?

    Any ideas?

      At a friend's wedding they used parasols, it was super cute.

        My girls carried bright pink parasols and they each carried a kissing ball of origami paper flowers. It was totally awesome and I think it looked way cute all together! Before I decided on the paper flowers I was leaning towards japanese paper fans. but changed my mind at the end. And Im happy with what I went with!

          My girls had a white parasol with a black swirl on it...they were super cute and they were able to take them home! They were cheaper than flowers and last longer! Btw, the pictures looked super cute with them as well. I borrowed one for my TTD shoot the next day.

              I was looking at this for inspiration as a DIY idea for BM (if I had time)


              These flowerball lanterns or something similar I saw in Chinatown that has a bamboo stick handle and a light inside.


              parasols are a good idea too, i've been eyeing these

              lol, as you can see i'm having a terrible time deciding =P
