There was a thread somewhere about this but I couldn’t find it. I am trying to make a list of all the flowers I will need and have this so far:
Bride, Bridesmaid or Best Man, Toss
Moms, Grandmas, DOC (My aunt), friends helping “run” reception (mostly making sure my cocoa and cider bar are stocked)
Groom, Groomsmen, Dads, Grandpas, Ushers
Did you get a bout for your preacher? We don’t have musicians and the readings will most likely be one of the bridal party, or maybe our in-law siblings. In which case, should the readers get a flower too? So confusing to think about!!

The corsages and bouts are for anyone you want to recognize. I don’t think you normally get one for the preacher, but I would get one for the readers. Also, if you’re having a guestbook attendant or any sort of personal attendant, they would get one too.

I got like a gazillion bouts. my florist told me I was old fashioned, but I had a lot of people I wanted to recognize. I got one for readers, ushers, all aunts/uncles, and few honorary aunts. My husband’s aunts flew in from Ghana and I wanted to get them flowers but in doing so, you can’t give a few aunts a coursage and not give them all…at least not in my family
