Why don’t you just ask her what she would like?

I think non-matching moms are totally fine – whether it’s dress length or type and style of flowers.  Some moms don’t want the bother of carring a nosegay while others don’t want a pin on delicate dress fabric – so go with what each prefers – that makes them both feel special that you asked and honored their requests.

Totally agree with the non matching.  I think it should fit there personality so, if one prefers a nosegay and the other a pinned or wrist corsage then great.  I wouldn’t worry about matching eachother especially since they wont be wearing the same dress!  I would even suggest asking them what colors they would like, maybe match their dress?  Im sure they are staying neutral or within your color palette that it would still be complementary to pictures but, still keep everyone’s individual style.  Good Luck!

I don’t think mom’s need to match either, make the mother’s happy!

Our moms are not matching flowers, they have different styles.

What is most important is that each honored lady feels comfortable and taken care of I think. And as long as the flowers are of the same materials then they match, really. One of my florist friends told me to use one color for family of the bride/one color for family of the groom. If you did that: say ivory for bride’s family; peach for groom’s family, then you would not have to worry about matching as much…now I’m scared the peach would be too feminine for the groom’s family, help!
