Are the mother of the bride and the mother of the groom supposed to have matching corsages?
My mom is an honorary matron of honor and is wearing a dress that is similar in color to my bridesmaids and I was thinking of having her wear a white and blue corsage.
My fiance’s mother is wearing some sort of a brown (or dark beige, I don’t remember) dress and I don’t know what shade of brown or anything and blue doesn’t really match with brown. I don’t want her corsage to clash with her dress.
Is it okay for me to give the MOG a white corsage to wear and then my mom a white and blue corsage? Or would it be better for me to give them both plain, white corsages so they can match?
Should I give my mom a small nosegay bouquet to carry when she walks down the aisle since she’s an honorary member of my wedding party or should I give my mom a few flowers from my bouquet?

I think it’s completely fine to have them with different things as long as they both have something! I might ask your mom if she wants to carry a nosegay bouquet. She might just want a corsage so she doesn’t have to worry about holding anything.

I was thinking the same thing. Both moms will be wearing different colors, so I think the flowers will be different colors, but I want them to be the same size and amount of flowers.

I just asked my mom and she said that she wants both the corsage and a nosegay bouquet.
I think that I’ll have them both wear the same corsage and then my mom will carry a nosegay bouquet with white and blue hydrangeas.

I didn’t; I matched theirs to the colour of their dresses. However, both have a white Singapore orchid + a coloured flower, so I guess they kind of tie in in that respect. They are both having wrist corsages so as to not damage their dresses pinning pin-on corsages on. My father’s partner wanted a pin-on though, but she also has a white Sing. orchid + something else.
