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

    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.

    @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.
