    I have them for moms, stepmom, and grandmas.  I guess it depends on how close you are to the aunts?

     We are having pretty much a family only wedding. So I will only be doing additional flowers for the moms (2) maybe grandmas (2) (theres a weird never met grandma/step grandma situation I haven’t figured out) dads (2) and grandpa (1).If I gave flowers to each aunt (6 original on my side alone) the whole guest list would have flowers. However, if they are important to you and you’d like to honor them go for it! It is your wedding and as long as you and your FH agree you are allowed to put your own twist on it. As long as it makes you happy!

    I am doing corsages for both my Mom and my FMIL.  No grandmothers otherwise I would get one for them.  My God mother is not coming, but if she was I would get one for her. 

    Other then that I got one for my personal attendant and thats it.

    I don’t think its necessary to get one for every female relative or aunt. But of course its totally up to the bride… Anything seems to go these days 🙂

    Our grandmothers are too ill to attend the wedding, so we just got corsages for our mothers.

    We’re only doing bridesmaid flowers and bouts for the guys. No corsages or bouts for family members. I don’t think my family is the type to care and we were trying to cut some costs.

    We only did corsages for moms/step-moms and, the reader (one was a female), and grandmoms. We didn’t do any for sisters and not aunts. I think typically it’s just moms and grandmoms, I think.

    I have them for my mom and his grandma.  My grandma is not going to make it now so I will probably give the third one I ordered to his aunt.

    Like Miss Star, we’re only doing bouquets and bouts for the bridal party. My mom thinks corsages are old-fashioned, so if the mother of the bride doesn’t want one, I’m not going to bother giving them to anyone else!

    like miss star and polkdadot, we are cutting costs  – bouquet and boutonniere for FH and I (we don’t have a bridal party). quotes i received for corsages were surprisingly expensive + i’ve never liked them – they slip around your wrist too much!

    I don’t think corsages for the aunts are necessary, only if you wanted to and there aren’t so many that it busts your budget.

    We got them for Mom’s (x2) readers for ceremony (x2) and my God mother. There were no grandmas there.

    As somebody said, it would depend on how close you are to your aunts.  That being said, I think we’re only doing mothers and grandmothers.
