Quick question for anyone to answer, please.
Do readers who are not otherwise in the wedding party get a boutonnière/corsage? Two of our readers are parents so they already get one and the third person is a family friend not otherwise involved in the wedding.

I don’t think so. I was a reader in my cousin’s wedding, and I didn’t have anything special, which was totally fine with me. I mean, if he and his wife had wanted to get me something, I would have been thrilled, but I didn’t need or expect anything. So that said, you certainly don’t have to get anything for your readers, but you’re more than welcome if you want to!

I gave them to the readers. Whenever I have done a reading in a wedding I have been given one and it wasn’t a big expense and made them feel included.

Our readers are our stepfathers. Neither of us has our father there and our stepfathers are both wearing tuxes and our moms are both getting corsages so yes we are getting our readers boutonnieres. Typically though, I think if they are just wearing a regular suit and not a significant role other than reading then no they don’t need one.

We got flowers for our readers. I think it is nice gesture to make them feel special and included since they are “more” than a standard guest. Plus it’s really inexpensive yet is a nice touch.
Also, since your other two readers will already have flowers since they are parents, I defintely think that the third reader shouldn’t be singled out.

I am getting my readers flowers. They aren’t getting the expensive orchid ones that the mothers/fathers are getting but they are still getting flowers! It doesn’t cost much more to add a few boutonnières/corsage
