I’m in the same boat and feel the same way.

I hear you.  I would rather spend $25 on a beautiful flower brooch for Mom and Future Mother-In-Law (to go with my brooch bouquet).  The men aren’t wearning jackets, so no bouts for them.

You definitely don’t have to buy them all flowers.  You can skip them altogether, or just give them to your biological mothers.

That’s why I’m not doing any. The special people know who they are…they don’t need a flower pinned on them.

Agreed. I wanted to forgo bouts and corsages… imo if someone doesn’t know who my mom is they probably shouldn’t be at my wedding! 

At my brother’s wedding last weekend though they gave my grandma a corsage and she actually took the care to take care of it overnight and put it back on for the day after brunch. So I guess it really meant something to her. 

And, we won’t have to do THAT many because I only have 1 living grandparent and Fiance will have no grandparents in attendance (he has 4 but they won’t come). So, we’ll probably just do them.

We’re doing bouts but not corsages. My mother doesn’t even really want to wear a corsage anyway. I got some fabric poms for the guys to wear that look pretty fun and bright, and they were $3 each (yay etsy!)

If you didn’t want to buy all them flowers you don’t have too. And If you all ain’t on speaking terms then personally i wouldn’t bother buying them flowers .

yeah.. i agree with what everyone here has said. if you’re not close, why do they need to be given flowers?  for me, we’re doing bouts and corsages for our parents, grandparents and siblings, that’s it.  we’re all quite close, so it’s no big deal and we want them to know we were thinking about them =)  it’s honestly up to you, im sure if you werent close in the first place; they wouldnt care if they got flowers or not =P
