Allergic to flowers! What to do?

 I am very allergic to flowers, I can't be in the same room with some types,  but I don't want to walk down the aisle empty handed. I am having a church wedding so anything cutesy is out. Does anyone have any suggestions? Know a good place to find fakes?

    I'm planning on doing fake flowers from angelsaccents.com .  The photo's of her flowers look real because their natural touch or floramatique.  I've ordered samples but I wanted specific colors they don't have, so I'll let you know how real they look in person once I get them.

    Please do not do fake flowers, they never look good.
    I have horrible allergies so I understand, I worked with my allergist and florist and found there is a quite a large variety for those of us who suffer.  You will be surprised.

    Good luck! and enjoy your day!!

    I disagree, I think fake flowers can look good as long as you choose carefully. I had a hard time choosing flowers for my upcoming wedding and after I visited several florists, I was really displeased with the amount of money I would be spending - which is saying a lot since I live in a smaller area so it's not as pricey. So I started looking around for silk flowers and ended up ordering some pre-made bouquets (BONUS!) from afloral.com. They just arrived today and I am beyond thrilled with them, they look beautiful. 

    In my opinion, the flowers/centerpieces tend to be the one thing that people don't remember too well about weddings. Of all the weddings I've been to, I can only recall two different centerpieces. If you get good silk flowers, most people won't be able to tell the difference unless they inspect them up close, which some will do at the tables but that's okay. As long as you find something that you are happy with that you love - everybody else will love it too. But I do highly recommend afloral.com for silks - they look beautiful and their return policy is great and it's free shipping over $199, which you would more than likely spend for flowers for an entire wedding.

    Good luck!

    There are lots of non-floral options. My bridesmaids will be carrying lanterns (our wedding is outside). You could carry a family bible or a favorite book. I've seen cute brooch bouquets. Offbeat bride has some really cool ideas.

    Thanks for all the suggestions! I'll look into them and see what there is out there.
