I am having both my Father and Mother walk me down the aisle as I am the last and youngest of four daughters to be married =) I want to get my mother a nice corsage that she can pin to her outfit to make her more apart of the ceramony as Dad will have his button hole.. My dilema is this, I read that the Grooms Mother traditionally gets a corsage too, I think thats fine normally.. but, my hubby has two mothers (one step of course) If you do one then the other has to have the same etc..I don’t want to do this as I want my mother to stand out as someone special as she is walking me down the aisle and I feel like if all the mothers have corsages it kind of loses its sentiment..
Is that terrible? Should I just get them all corsages? I really don’t want to offend anyone!

I say corsages for all! Your mother will stand out because she is walking you down the aisle. His moms wearing the corsages as well will not in any way diminish the sentiment as you put it…

You could get your FI’s moms corsages and your mom a mini bouquet or you could get your mom a corsage and your FI’s moms mini bouquets. I think the bouquet would be nice for your mom because maybe you could do a mini one of your bouquet.

They should all stand out because they are all the mummys!

well, i say get your mom a bouquet, if you are really concerned. nothing as bridal as yours or anything dramatic, perhaps in your accent colors 3 flowers or so… a mini version of yours. and perhaps your groom can give his mom a flower arrangment she can keep at the house and then a wrist corsage. Or, if you feel okay with it, get her a boquiet too.
just a thought
peace and love

your mom will stand out — she’s walking you down the aisle!
i would get them all slightly different corsages. you could also have some pin-on and some as wrist corsages, or give a mini bouquet to one.

We are taking a moment during the ceremony right before we kiss to honor our mothers. Our last kiss as a single person, goes to the one that gave us our first kiss. We are also giving each of them a bouquet. Neither one of our mothers got the bouquet they wanted for their weddings, so we are giving them the ones they wanted and never got originally.

If your goal is not to offend anyone, I would get everyone corsages. Just remember, as much as it’s a big day for your parents, and a big day for his parents as well.
We actually did corsages for wedding party, parents and grandparents. My grandmother passed away many years ago, and my grandfather is in a long-term relationship with a nice lady. I don’t consider her my granmother, but many of my cousins do because they were too young to remember my biological grandmother. Anyway, I didn’t want her to feel left out, so I actually got a corsage for her too. Giving a corsage to one person doesn’t take away from the corsage you gave to someone else.

I would get them for everyone. If you want your mom to stand out, you can make hers another color or a little bit bigger.

@danky_dae: I say get your MIL and StepMIL corsages or flower pins (kind of like a bout, but more feminine) and then have your mom carry a “tussy mussy” which is essentially just a mini bouquet – thats what my mom carried and she loved it! She carried it around with her all day

My florist mentioned this during our meeting and I thought he was nuts; all of my old ladies, including my mom, an Aunt and a step-mom (and my younger sister in law) are getting the same coursage. Why play floral politics with family?! The mother of the bride will always stand out. ‘Nuff said.

i would say all the moms should get a corsage. you can make them different colors if you want your mom’s to be different. everyone will know who your mom is anyway.

Or, give your mom a pin-on corsage, and the others wrist corsages.
There are a lot of ways to make your mom stand out without leaving others out. Make your moms a bouquet, a different color, larger, etc.
