Thanks to @TattedNYbride, I’ll be ordering (all silk) my bouquet, 3 bridesmaids bouquets, 13 boutieneires (sp?), 6 corsages, and the flower girl flowers all for $250 from thebridesbouquet.com.
BUT it gives me an option to either have a clip on or a wrist corsage for my mothers and grandmothers and FMIL. What’s more wedding like?
Thanks in advance for your replies 🙂

I think clip on would look nicer. I just think of Prom when I think wrist corsage. But that’s just my opinion

I think clip on looks nicer, but a florist who was trying to sell me on corsages said wrist ones are better because they don’t get crushed every time somekne higs the wearer.

I would just ask what they prefer and order there preference

@tobemrstaddesse: depends on the dress. ask the mother’s what their dress looks like and what they would prefer.

Clip is nicer and less prom-like, but make sure their dresses would work okay with a clip-on. We did clip-on for the mothers and grandmothers, except one – and it was only because of her dress. You could also check what they prefer too.

We ordered the clip-on corsages for my grandmas because they are more traditional. Our moms carried posey bouquets, but I agree that it would have been largely about the dress, and whether a clip-on would work.

@tobemrstaddesse: Will mom and grandma’s dress material hold up a clip on? If not or you’re not sure, a wrist corsage will always work and not pull down the top of their dresses. Also, clip-ons do tend to get crushed, especially if mom or grandma is a hugger.

I agree with PPs who said you have to know the dress. Plus there might be a strange neckline or embellishments that will make a clip-on difficult.
