Big Wedding, Small Budget

Bouquet Alternatives – Pinwheels

on January 19, 2012

I’m not sure yet what we’ll do about a wedding party. I will definitely have some sort of bridal posse, but as for who will walk down the aisle, that remains to be seen. I do know that I’m not in love with bouquets. I’ve held some beautiful ones at friends’ wedding, but the truth is that flowers are just not high enough on the priority list to make it worth spending a lot of money. I’ve thought about skipping any kind of bouquet altogether, but then Offbeat Bride featured a wedding where everyone carried pinwheels. Pinwheels! They would be perfect for our vision of a casual picnic wedding, and I think they’re so cute!

I did some digging around on the web and found this picture:

I definitely like the look and size of the pinwheels, but I would want something with all solid colors or a more modern print. Like this:

I loooove this pinwheel! It’s so colorful, and I like the look of the shape better than the pointy ones. I think if I did have bridesmaids walk down the aisle, I would have them choose their own dress in a certain color, so having a rainbow pinwheel would bring everyone together nicely.

Obviously, everything will depend on the venue we choose, but for something like a picnic in the park, I think these pinwheels fit much better than traditional flower bouquets.
