It depends.  We are also giving bouts/corsages to the godparents and grandparents.

We usually give a flower to anyone who has a “supporting role” (i.e. was asked to do some type of job for the wedding, such that their name appears in the program). This would include readers, gift carriers, musicians, guest book attendant, etc., if you have one of those.

In order to economize, though, and not break the bank on flowers (because I have a big family, including a lot of young cousins, and I wanted them to be included but not necessarily have to spend $15 on a corsage for all of them), we are using real flowers just for the bridal party and the parents. For everyone else, I am making them a silk flower with the extras from the supplies I bought to make myself a headpiece. Since I only needed a few sprigs from each spray for the headpiece, I was going to have a bunch of leftovers no matter what, and this was a good way to put them to use. Plus, especially for the kids, a silk flower will be more durable and can be a nice keepsake for them if they want one.

We had bouts and corsages for the grandparents. We also gave corsages to the people doing readings.

Also, you may want an extra bout for your groom because they tend to break/get smushed when everyone is hugging the groom and whatnot. 😉
