I’m flirting with the idea of using felt flower bouquets in my wedding…?

by DIY wedding planner on December 29, 2011

So I’m on a very limited budget and I really like the look of these bouquets, but what should the flower girl drop down the aisle? I don’t know how much the silk petals would clash and I don’t want little bits of felt on the ground. Is there something else she could drop or would the silk flowers work? Any other suggestions?

Here’s a link to give you an idea:

If you like them, that is what is important. However, by the time you buy all the felt and put that together, you will have spent more than you would on a bundle of fresh flowers at the grocery floral department and wrapped ribbon around the stems.

If you’re getting married after Valentine’s day next year, be at Walmart the day after and get a few boxes of silk rose petals for the flower girl.

You don’t need to have the flower girl drop anything on the floor. It just makes a mess, and is acutally a trip and fall hazard depending upon the flooring material and people’s shoes. I always advise brides against doing so.

Just have the felt bouquets and let the flower girl carry one too.

I don’t like the idea but that doesn’t matter. The choice is yours and your fiance’s. If you and him like them, use them.

You are thinking traditional with a non-traditional budget. Instead of doing things, that in my opinion, may look cheap you should just change your ceremony. There isn’t anything written where the flower girl has to throw anything. I think that the one place that you shouldn’t scrimp is in your bouquet. Even a few flowers tied together with a ribbon would look elegant and be cost effective.
