I only made pinwheel bouts for the groom and two groomsmen. Now my mother decides to tell me that EVERYONE (all 30 members of my family) should get one but they don’t want pinwheels, they want flowers. What?! Must I give EVERYONE one?
Who did you give the bouts/corsages to?

We didn’t do all our family – only honored guests. So, we ordered bouts and corsages for my Mom & Dad, Groomsmen, Fiance, Grandparents, and FILs (oh, and the officiant…who in my case is my grandfather so he was going to get one either way)!

We gave boutonnieres or corsages to the Groom, Groomsmen, Ring Bearer, both sets of Grandparents, and both sets of Parents. I think having them for the entire family seems a bit expensive/unnecessary unless that is something that you and your fiance want to do.

I didn’t do them at all– but traditionally, it’s the parents & grandmothers that get flowers.

Bridal party, parents, grandparents and usher. I think the whole family is excessive!

My mom wants corsages/bouts for parents (7; FI’s stepfather passed away), grandparents (2), great aunts (3), uncles (5), aunts (3) and cousins (8).
I could add parents and grandparents but they won’t wear the pinwheels. And, I’ll have to get rose corsages/bouts.
