What about a wrist one?   Still no go?

Our moms had nosegay bouquets. None of us are particularly fond of corsages so the nosegays fit the bill perfectly…

We are doing clutch bouquets (nosegay bouquets too I guess LOL)

Ivory flowers for my mom and pink and ivory for my MIL  – neither of them liked the idea of corsages

 This is usually the size of a nosegay (pretty small), so if they don’t want a wristlet or corsage, I guess this would work. I don’t like any of them, so opted for none. Nobody likes to ruin a nice dress by pinning something on it anyway.

At my daughter’s wedding, the groom’s Grandmothers both got corsages and left them on the table at the end of the night! lol

OP…ask them. They may prefer nothing too.

We gave them pinned corsages, aka boutonnieres.

We’re planning on wristlets. I haven’t decided between a swarovski crystal bouquet or a brooch bouquet. But I’ll have my mom’s wristlet coordinated to match my bouquet. She has a custom designer gown with matching clutch bag. The top of her gown is beaded by hand, so I wouldn’t want her to have a corsage. My Mother-In-Law will have a wristlet made of flowers as my husband prefers real flowers on his bout too.

My mom had a few little flowers that just clipped onto her handbag/clutch, about the size of a small bout.  Just a couple ivory roses, no filler.

We did poseys (nosegays) too. The moms liked them, I think.

We’re getting corsages done with fancy bracelets – there’s only two flowers on it and the rest of the bracelet is something that the Moms will want to wear in the future.
