 I love the alternative to the usual bridesmaid bouquet of giving your bridesmaids a beautiful wrist corsage to wear. It leaves the hands free, adds something a little different and is something a little special.

If you’re worried about what bridesmaids do with their hands, they could put the corsage on after the ceremony, carrying it down the aisle, walk arm in arm with a groomsmen,  walk with their hands clasped in front of them to show off the flowers, or just walk normally. Wear the corsage on the wrist that is not the dominant hand to protect it from wear and tear.

Of course one is not limited to real flowers. Equally as beautiful would be handmade paper or fabric blooms! Let your imagination run wild! What do you think?

    Believe it or not, the roses in the first photo are actually silk! 🙂 They were made by a friend of mine who has an etsy store (look her up – kiki romantik).

    I’m planning to have my MOH (no BMs) wear a wrist corsage. She’ll have her hands full as it is wrangling my niece & nephew, who are our flower girl & page boy, so a bouquet was out of the question.

    What kind of flowers is on the top photo coursage? The white flowers with the pearl band?
