I got a corsage for my grandmother. She just loves flowers so much how could i not? 🙂 But I got her the kind that goes on the wrist. It’s just a really nice touch.

We are … our grandmothers are more old fashioned and probably would have been crushed w/out one.  I would maybe ask your mom what she thinks.

You can skip grandmothers if you’re looking for a way to cut back but I think it’s the norm to include them, especially if they’re part of your processional. I hate corsages so I opted for nosegay bouquets for the moms and single stem bouquets for our grandmothers and my aunt. It will just be a single stem of a coordinating flower with some greenery to bulk it up and a ribbon or something. I don’t love them by any means but it was really the only suitable option for us.

My grandmas got them…wrist ones.

Having them travel 3-4 hours to get here and to be at my wedding was so special to me.  I am the first grandchild on both sides and the first grandchild to get married, so I’m thinking it was a big deal to them too. 

Here they are sitting moments after being walked down the aisle by my brother! You can see my one grandma’s corsage.

We are. One of the first things my aunt said to me when we got engaged was ‘you better give nana a corsage’. We are a really old fashioned italian family so she would be heartbroken if she didn’t get one!

I think it is nice to include the grandmothers. It makes them more noticeable as “family”

Seeing that your Moms are having nosegays, you could do tussy mussies for the Grandmothers.

Our grandma’s are getting corsage’s, my mom’s mom is paying for the wedding so YES she is getting one, so I figured, since I made them myself, I could make one for all the grandma’s, afterall, we wouldn’t be here had it not been for them 🙂

our grandmas are getting wrist corsages.  They are both very important to us and we want them recognized in that small way.  They are also both traditional in their own ways and I know they would appreciate having the corsage for the event.  It’s costing us $15/each, so we didn’t feel like it was a lot of money.

We are doing one for FI’s grandma.  FI comes from a big farming family, but no one has ever really had a ‘real’ wedding before, so he wanted to do something formal/traditional for her.

I asked my mom if she wanted one, and she insisted… so she and FMIL and his gram are all getting pinned corsages.

I am for sure, I think they would be crushed if we didn’t get them one. And really in the grand scheme of things it is a small amount of money.

It also helps that I am now not paying for the flowers as my mom and oma are.

We did corsages and bouts for grandparents. I think it’s especially nice if they are going to be part of the processional. They’re not that expensive and I think skipping recognizing family is probably not the greatest idea…I’d find somewhere else to cut a corner.
