    How about real touch flowers you can assemble beforehand?

    I’m not exactly sure why my bridesmaid spent anytime thinking they weren’t going to have flowers to hold, but they were really worried about what they were going to do with their hands.  When I showed them their bouquets they were really relieved.  Just a thought…

    I’m always a fan of non-traditional touches 🙂

    to me, corsages seem sort of prom-ish, but depending on how they were put together i would at least consider it!

    @MrsEME:  Do the thing you want.  It’s that simple.

    I love corsages, but the “what do I do with my hands” thing is an issue. I gave my bridesmaids parasols to hold. Turned out very pretty!

    @MrsEME:  It’s not for me- but my florist asked if I would be interested in it as a few of her recent brides have done that. The pics she showed me were beautiful – but I’m just not a corsage person. If you love it, go for it!

    I think it’s a great idea. The only issue I’d have is what will the bridesmaids do with their hands while walking down the isle?

    I’m doing flowers for a wedding this weekend at Red Rocks in Denver where only the bride will have a bouquet and the bridesmaids (and a good number of other people involved in the wedding) will all have wrist corsages. During the ceremony, the bridesmaids and groomsmen will walk down the aisle and then sit; only the bride, groom, rabbi, and those holding the chuppah will be standing at the front. I think it’s a nice change from the bridesmaid bouquet tradition and I don’t think wrist corsages have to look prom-y; in fact, rarely do I make wrist corsages that look like they should be featured at a prom. 🙂

    I think that’s a great idea! And I would be excited as a BM to get a corsage. They are pretty and I wouldn’t have to worry about keeping track of it, since I’d be wearing it.
