Instead of corsages, consider giving the mothers of the wedding party small bouquets to carry. No need to worry about pinning on finicky corsages, let them carry these sweet bouquets instead.
 
 
You will need:
Around 10 stems of flowers including 3 large open blossoms, 1 stem of greenery, 1 stem of filler, and a mix of budded and open flowers in different shapes and sizes. Pictured: 2 parrott tulips, 2 stems of ranunculus, 2 stems of mimosa, 3 stems muscari, 1 stem hyacinth.
 
Other flowers that work well: roses, lisianthus, astiilbe, queen anne's lace, lily of the valley, and herbs.
 
Finally, you'll need string, scissors, clippers, ribbon and a vase to hold bouquets.
 
 
Directions:
1. Strip most of the leaves off the flowers and cut the stems around 6 inches short.
 
 
2. Hold a few of the flowers in one hand and add flowers and greenery with the other hand, until the bouquet looks about right.
 
 
3. Tie with a string.
 
 
4. Trim the stems about 4 inches long.
 
 
5. Tie with a ribbon. 
 
 
6. Keep in vase with a label until the event or photos begin!
 
Tip: When arranging the flowers, remember you can balance out one large flower with 3 smaller flowers. Another idea is to keep the larger, open flowers towards the bottom and the lighter flowers and buds towards the top of the bouquet.
 
 
The mothers in your wedding party will love carrying these sweet nosegays and can enjoy them for about a week after the wedding!
 
  
 
Aren't they stunning?
