I’d say that if your FI doesn’t want to wear a corsage, then no one else does either. They can all wear watching suits/tuxes, so they’ll still stand out and look cohesive. As for corsages, we plan to do them for moms and grandmas, but I don’t know what the “rule” is.

Laurenplusalex:  If FI doesn’t want one, his groomsmen don’t either. Unlike the PP, I think you should ask your dad and his dad if they want bouts. If it’s important to them, get them bouts.

Moms, grandmas get corsages.

Well my husband wore one, our officiant (my brother in law), as did our two groomsmen, my father and his father. If my grandpa was there he would have received one as well. My mom, his mom, aunt, and younger sister all had corsages. If we had any other close family there they would have had one too (we live FAR from family besides immediate). If your FI doesn’t want one, I’d say don’t have any of the guys wear one. Although my husband liked his and he had it on all night because he forgot about it. I didn’t think it was a big deal. Looked great in pictures!
