Has anyone else seen installment 2 of the Consumerist series yet?
This one goes over the top in many ways. The howler was the suggestion that the Bride can go without flowers and and be 'creative' by carrying a fairy wand or a fly swatter.
Yes, they actually suggested a fly swatter.
How's that a substantial economy?
Unless it ties with the theme somehow (doubts it for the fly swatter but hey..), if it's about being thrifty, go with wildflowers, or a non-wedding bouquet (since I guess the "wedding" part of the name makes it wayyyy more expensive).
And just a fairy wand? I'd feel empty handed, I'd rather carry gloves in my hand* than one something.
*There's a family joke/play on words in there about my parent's wedding, my grandmother giving my father some gloves, saying it's to give him composture (contenance
in french, same word as volume) and him replying that "yeah, 6 or 7 onces". I've heard that grandma was not amused
