Corsages: pin-on vs wristlets

For the corsages, did you choose pin-on or wristlets?  How did you decide? 


Personally, I think I like the pin-ons better because the wristlets remind me too much of prom.  But I asked my future mother-in-law what she thought and she prefers the wristlets (of course she does!) so now I don't know what I should do. 


Appreciative of any and all words of advice!  :)

I let my Mom and MIL decide. I figured they were the ones who would have to deal with it all day.


They both chose mini bouquets. (sorry to add another option!)

I spoke to my MIL and stepmother, and both of them requested wristlets.  My stepmother ended up not being able to come to the wedding due to a family emergency with my father, so I ended up giving hers to my cousin who is more of a sister to me. 


I would also take into consideration the type of dress that they are wearing as well because sometimes pin-ons can be heavy, and you don't want to end up ruining their dresses.  HTH!

We mixed and matched. The mom's and grandmothers got wristlets, they were a little bigger and very elegant for special ladies :) Everyone else had pin-ons...I guess my only feeling on this is make sure you have somebody who knows how to do a secure pin checking everyone's!


I was in a wedding not too long ago where we were just handed our pins and I can't do that to save my life so it was falling off all night, and so were a bunch of other peoples! Just add it to your list of things you need help with, a personal attendant or BM can be in charge.

I'll let them decide ... whatever they feel most comfortable with. I do tend to like the pin-ons better though.

I know when I first started talking about flowers with my mom, she said she wanted a wristlet.  She doesn't like the pin-ons because they flop around and seem a little big for her(my mom is a petite woman).  I also ordered my grandma a wristlet... I thought it would just be easier that way.  I guess you should let them choose.  I still get to choose what flowers they will be, so everybody wins!
