Flowers for moms

Hi girls. Are your mothers having corsages or little bouquets? My mom and my fmil don't care (neither do I), but a decision needs to be made.

my florist originally put down wrist corsages but i had her change it to small hand held bouquets.  corsages make me think of prom.  with the posey, they will be able to put it down later in the night if they tire of it.

My mom and MIL both requested to not have a corsage, since they didn't want to have to pin it to their dresses... which both happened to be silk. We got them nosegays (little bouquets). I still got  traditional corsages for my Grandmas though. ;-)


If they say they don't care, maybe ask them what color their outfits will be and what material. Maybe that will help you make a decision. Thay way they don't end up with a corsage that totally clashes with the color of their dress. If that's not an issue, then I'd do whatever you think you'd like to see in photos.

My mom and FGIL will be wearing corsages. It might be easier than having little bouquets, b/c I'm sure she'll get tired of holding it.

My florist is actually creating corsages that can also be made into bouquets in case they don't want to pin it on.

I planned on having wrist corsages for my mom & MIL and regular corsages for the G-mas.  Then I read something about having a corsage created to be attached to the clutch or purse.  My mom & MIL decided to do this.  My mom said next time (for my bro) she won't do this, but MIL loved it.  Everyone else had regular corsages.

my mom wanted a little bouquet, i think she secretly wishes she were a bridesmaid! ha.


it's weird to me that they said they didn't care... since it really depends on if they want to carry something or not.

We're going to have pin-on corsages for the mothers and grandmothers like the boutonierres.  We'll also going to give the mothers a single red rose during the rose ceremony.

we are having the grandparents wear wrist corsages and the moms are having little bouquets since they have silk dresses. We are also using their bouquets at the paternts table for an extra centerpiece, to help make their table stand out a little.
