    We didn’t do anything for the moms, dads, or grandparents. There just wasn’t time, so I say it’s fine. No one said a thing about it, not even the parents. Everyone was just happy for us.

    Ask your moms and sister if they’ll care, but if not, who cares what the guests think? It’s a flower.

    I’m planning to ditch the corsages and bouts also.  They’re too much money for something that gets crumpled up with hugs.

    My family was ok with this decision.  FMIL may have an issue, so we might get them anyways…  I’d ask to see how your parents feel without them.  Make sure they will still be happy (it really is a day for them too…).

    We were planning on ditching them, only to learn FMIL REALLY wanted one…so corsages all the way around 🙁

    Be sure to ask the ladies, and if they don’t care you can completely ditch them.  if one of them really wants one, it’s probably worth doing it to make her happy!

    I was going to not have corsages/flowers for parents and grandparents, but then found out my gram really wanted one so  maybe ask first.

    I didn’t even know about ordering corsages for the mom’s and grandmothers until I went to order flowers. The florist asked if I was going to and I was like “huh?” I thought it was a nice gesture, though, especially for the grandmothers, but I know they probably wouldn’t’ have known or cared if they hadn’t received one. I’m guessing if you have a really traditional family, then they might miss them, but if not, they probably won’t notice.

    I would ask. I didn’t think it was a big deal for our wedding b/c it was so small and not traditional, but my mom was with me when picking out flowers and she got really excited when they asked if we wanted coursages, so of course we got them.

    we’re ditching them too! we’re having a winter wedding, so by the time everyone has taken on & off their jackets and coats and hugged everyone they will be smashed. easy way to save $250!

    I wasn’t going to bother either and I’m sure my mother wouldn’t have minded… BUT it’s one of the those things I knew my Grandmother was expecting.  Since we’re not doing anything else that is overly traditional, I thought it would be nice of me to do that for her. 

    So, in your case, I would just ask them if it’s a big deal to them or not and go from there!

    We’re going for mini bouquets of lavender–I don’t really like corsages but as it turns out my mom would have been hurt (so make sure to ask, I”m glad I did).  The thing I like best about the mini bouquets is that they’ll be able to dry them and hold on to them for a while, since lavender is really easy to dry.
