Hi, Bees! Money is pretty tight for my wedding, so I cut out bouts for the groomsmen and will be doing pocket squares instead. My bouquet and my BMs’ bouquets are going to be natural touch silk flowers. I was wanting to do natural touch bouts and corsages for my family members (grandparents, etc.) who are not directly in the wedding; however, it would save a whopping $45 (4 corsages and 2 bouts) if I just did the regular silk. Do you guys think it is bad taste? My florist said that the regular silk is still nice quality. Any thoughts?

if you’re okay with silk then they should be too! i can’t see it being a problem 🙂

I personally think you should do whatever you can afford. I think anyone in your family will be touched with whatever you get them regardless if they are silk, real, or natural silk. I cut down going coursages / bouts for anyone that was not immediate family / bridal party just to cut down on costs.

I think it’s totally fine! My parents used regular silk bouts/corsages (and real flowers for bouquets) for their wedding, and I love that my mom can keep my dad’s bout in her printer’s drawer all these years later 🙂 I think it’s 100% reasonable for your bouquet flowers to be a notch up in quality/design over the bouts/corsages. And I honestly wouldn’t be able to tell the difference as a family member….and it’s not like I’m going to spend my time on your wedding day comparing the flowers in your bouquet to my corsage 😉
