    My fiance and I are planning on getting married in Bermuda next April. I am trying to cut costs wherever I can but I still want to make sure that my event is classy.

    I am having a hard enough time forking out $150 for my bouquet that I probably wont even like (we dont really get much say in the flowers) and that I will use for 20 minutes to then leave there as we cannot bring fresh flowers back onto the cruise ship.

    The maids bouquets are $75 each. I would need 2. Does anyone have any alternatives to bridesmaid bouquets that would fit well with a beach wedding in Bermuda? If the ideas are cool enough, I wont hesitate to scrap my bouquet either.

    I thought about ordering fake flowers, which I am still open to, but I have yet to find anything that didn't scream artificial.

    Thanks for the help!

    Side note: I did search the forum but couldn't find anything similar to be question. My apologies if there is already a thread out there.

      You can have parasols, fans, pomander flower balls, or corsages

        I have definitely seen other threads on this.. but I'm having my bridesmaids carry single flowers... I have seen threads recommend parasols and fans..

            I thought I saw a post similar to this one. I have seen one bride use pinwheels. She had everybody in her wedding party (BM, FG) carry a pinwheel and she even used pinwheels to decorate their aisle!

                You should look into "Real Touch" fake flowers. VERY realistic but may not save you much money. But at least you will be able to keep you bouquet.

                  I think this shell bouquet is kind of a neat idea:

                  If you want to go the flower route I would just have your bridesmaids do a single flower.
