Was just talking to my FSIL and she said we need flowers for the greaters/hostess at the ceremony. Why is this done??
What is this?? I was to embarrass to ask her. And sorry that I dont know but I never done this before and dont attend that many weddings

We had a host couple at our reception, it was my God-parents and we did get them flowers. They were listed in the program. My rule of thumb was if they are listed in the program then they get flowers. Not sure if this is the right etiquette or not, but they greeters/hostess should stand out while people are coming in, and flowers are a good way to do that! I don’t think it’s necessary though.

If you ask people to perform any kind of function in the wedding (from greeters to guest book attendants to wedding cake cutter-uppers) you will probably hear that you need to get that person a coursage/bout. It’s a way of making them stand out a little more as "honorary" guests and a way of thanking them/making them feel special.
That being said, we only bought our parents and my grandma flowers. Even our sisters and readers didn’t get one because, honestly, I felt like it would be a waste. I knew our parents and my grandma would appreciate it because they’re old-school, but I figured everyone else would probably only wear it out of being nice to us and not because they really wanted to. And nobody complained. 🙂
