VERY allergic to flowers

What do you do with a bride who is very allergic to flowers even when they are cut?  Everytime I get cut flowers, I am sneezy and itchy and do not have a fun time. I need help!

    Easy!  Don't have flowers. 

    Use silk flowers for bouquets (or feathers, or fans).  Centerpieces can be candles or freshfruit or cakes.

    NO flowers. Either use silk or paper (OMG, the paper bouquets on Etsy are to die for) or brooches for your bouquet.  Centerpieces can be branches, crystals, antique books, birdcages, globes, candles, paper flowers, pin wheels, wine corks, colorful glass bottles, photos that are meaningful to y'all or any combo of those things (or anything else). 

    There are so many options. Poke around on the knot articles and photo slideshows for a while. =)

    I am in the same position as you and am using silks. I would have anyway if I weren't allergic, because I like to DIY everything and want to make sure I love my bouquet, and can have it completed before the wedding.
