You can do the one corsage for the mother of the groom, I don’t think it would look weird at all.  If she’s wearing a MOB dress, she’ll still coordinate with the party and people will know who she is.

@laurendani: Would your mom be ok with a small bouquet of maybe 3 flowers total? Just so she has something for photos?

I don’t think it matters. My mom definitely did not wear a corsage, and I can’t even remember what Mother-In-Law did! I do know that I just let them do whatever they wanted.

I worked with a friend who owned the flower shop….she didn’t want to wear a corsage either….so she carried a small bible that was her mothers and put some flowers on it. It was a way to have grandma there. It also had dates of all the past weddings and births in the family written inside.  Just a thought!

I don’t think it would look weird. People probably won’t even notice. 🙂

Is she carrying a small clutch purse? Maybe put a few flowers on that?

@laurendani:  why doesn’t she want a corsage?  would she wear a small wrist corsage or tack something to her clutch purse?

I’m a MOB and I don’t do corsages.  I’m sorry, but for me they are for old ladies and proms.  I did wear one for Dirty Delete #1’s wedding 8 years ago – it was DOA after the receiving line.  I truly don’t like them.  A wrist corsage would drive me bonkers.

For last DD’s wedding she gave all 3 mom’s the choice of what we wanted.  Her biomom wanted a corsage, I wanted a teeny tiny nosegay, and her Mother-In-Law wanted flowers for her hair that were beyond stunning.

If she doesn’t want one, it is no big deal.

People might notice and think it’s weird, but if she doesn’t want one, then she doesn’t have to have one. I probably wouldn’t notice unless somebody pointed it out or I studied the pictures really closely. I don’t like corsages OR bouquets…not sure I can get away with no bouqets, though!

I got my mom a tiny bouquet and a coursage for my Future Mother-In-Law. Neither cared that they wouldn’t match.
