What are Your Bridesmaids Carrying?

I’ve been loving how brides are getting so creative with what their bridesmaids carry down the aisle. Who says they have to carry a bouquet! Why not pretty parasols?

Or maybe some fun hearts?

Or keeping with a vintage theme, cute clutches!

Or beautiful fans?

The possibilities are endless! Be creative with your theme or location. I could see carrying tea light candles in small vases for an indoor winter wedding or pinwheels for a outdoor spring wedding. Are any of you planning on having your bridesmaids carry something non traditional?
