I’m getting corsages for our mothers and four grandmothers.  Since none of the wedding party will be using boutonnieres, the dads won’t either.

Boutonnieres: Groom (of course!), GM, Fathers, Grandfathers, any ushers or men involved with the wedding ceremony and the officiant…. that is what I have typically heard.

Corsages: Mothers, Grandmothers, any women involved with the wedding (i.e. personal attendant, guest book attendant etc.)

We will be getting them for my parents, his parents and step-parents, and the remaining grandparents.  I might also get corsages for his step-sisters since they are the only immediate family members not in the wedding party, and I want them to feel included.

we’re getting corsages for moms and grandmas, and bouts for groomsmen, and dads, no grandfathers will be there. nobody else will be involved in the wedding, if we had ushers or readers i’d probably get some for them too.

We gave coursages to our moms and my grandma (only one grandma on both sides).  We gave bouts to my husband and our dads (no grandpas on both sides).

We’re doing pretty much the same, corsages for the moms and g-mas (although my mom isn’t a fan so I’m going to get her a fun flower pin instead), and bouts for the groomsmen, dads, (no g-pas surviving) and ushers.

Wow! I like the golf tees, that’s awesome.  I don’t think the fathers have to wear them too though, unless they like golf as well..in which case they might be more happy with tees than flowers.

In addition to who gets the corsages/boots, did ya’ll make them different or the same as the Groomsmen’s boots? I’m just wondering if my dad & FI’s dad should be the same or different?

FH and his best man are getting bouts. My MOH is going to be holding my bouquet during the ceremony so I’m getting her a pin on corsage instead of a smaller bouquet (also works well because then I can gift it to her and it won’t take up much space in her suitcase).

We’re doing the same.  FI will have a different style bout than everyone else.  The groomsmen, BM, FIL, and my dad will all have the same bout as well as our ushers. Corsages are going to the mom’s (grandparents are no longer with us), our readers, guestbook attendant, etc.

Boutonnieres go to the men. Men don’t wear corsages. I’m pretty cheap so only wedding party and parents have flowers…
