So I’m in a bind. I really hate crosages. I think that they look weird and obnoxious and as such I really don’t want to have my mom and my FMIL wear them. My mom is totally ok with it since she is wearing a strapless dress and understands that it would look like she’s got some flowers sprouting from her boobal area. She’s worried though with not getting one for my FMIL. She thinks that she will be hurt.
Instead of a crosage, I talked about getting a nice arrangement to have in their room when they arrive with their OOT bags.
What do you all think? Do I just have to suck it up and have the, IMO, horrid looking boobal arrangement just to make sure she’s not hurt.
Oh, and it’s not something that I can talk to my FMIL about.

I’m not crazy about corsages either. I’m doing petite hand-tied bouquets of 5-6 blooms for the Moms. The only one getting a corsage is my Grandma- cause she’s old school – but it’s a wrist corsage.
I don’t think they’ll be hurst as long as you recognize them in some way.
I’ve also read about some brides giving the Moms a brooch to wear or giving them a single long-stem rose or lily

Ah, jewerly would be an option. One more thing to go buy…but I like that a lot more than boobal flowers (sorry, gotta have a laugh somewhere). I could see how a grandma would like some flowers.

We did not do corsages for the moms or grandmas. We DIYed flowers and just didn’t think it was that big of a deal. Additionally, my mom was really adamant about not wanting one (she didn’t want to pin something to her dress or feel like she was going to the junior prom). I was wondering if my MIL would want one, but she was totally okay without it.
