Bride not like flowers

Any suggestions for a bride that does not like flowers?  Not a broach boquet or silk flower fan either. HELP!

    If you don't like flowers, is that all plants in general or just not the flowered ones?  There are pussy willows that could be pretty if done right.  What kind of feel is your wedding?  I also saw online you can do a "cotton boll bouquet" where they had just popped open


    You can also carry a parasol, or a candle/lantern? I also saw a bride who put together Christmas ornaments online (picture below).  Glue seashells together?  Feathers?  LOL I have tons of ideas - it would all depend what kind of "feel" you are going with and your dress :)

    This site had a lot of pretty options with pics!

    What about not having a bouquet at all? Is that an option?

    Carry photos of those special to you, or of your and your groom.  Have they sprayed out/glued to pearl stems or something that doesn't make it too busy.  I really enjoy mixing up tradition with new and personal ways of doing things that have meaning.

    Have you seen Princess Lazertrons work?

    See does cool bouquets out of antique fabrics and felt, you can order a cheaper do it yourself kit from her as well.

    I'm not a big flower fan myself, and I couldn't see spending that sort of money for items which would barely last one day.  What I did was go to the woman from Something Chic in Des Moines, and I gave her my very modest budget.  Since I don't have strong feelings for flowers other than that they just serve their purpose - she was able to do our bouquets, boutonnieres, and mother corsages for a very reasonable price. 
    I did look into alternatives, but ultimately this ended up being much cheaper for us.

    What about dried flowers? More grasses, galls, dried berries, etc. It wouldn't look like a traditional bouquet.  I also saw a dried flower bouquet that had pheasant feathers in them! Thought that was very unique.
