My mom did too. She was not happy that I made her wear one at the wedding.

Ugh, hate them! We arn’t doing them or boutineers. My fh will probably wear some skull pin on his tux for some personality but thats it.

@Willow1991:  I’m with you. I think they are pretty cumbersome.

@Willow1991:  Well if you don’t like the look and your mom won’t be offended at not getting one, then I think it’s totally fine to leave it out. I doubt anyone would even notice

I feel the same way – they’re scratchy and don’t look all that nice… I’m not having them.

If they don’t like them,don’t get them. I had 2 small orchids in my hair in lieu of a flower or corsage, so see what they really want. I personally think they are a waste.

I don’t like them on a wrist, but on the dress or man’s pocket it’s okay.

I think they’re (usually) ugly, and generally a waste of money. We’re skipping them altogether. We are doing boutonnieres (not the rose & baby’s breath ones, I don’t like those), though.

I have seen people give guests of honor (like MOB & MOG) single roses in lieu of a corsage, which I think is a nice alternative, though not necessary.

Me and both moms were anti corsage so they didn’t have them. Our grandmas did though because old ladies like that kind of thing :). I diy’d flowers though so it was no big deal

I hate them, and so do my mom and stepmom. I thought my Mother-In-Law would be sad if she wasn’t visually distinguished in some way, I gave all the moms small poseys to carry or not, as they liked. It was a good compromise.

Ugh, yes, I hate corsages and boutonnieres! My mom doesn’t really want one either, but my Mother-In-Law wants one for EVERYONE (MIL, grandparents, godparents, etc) and seemed upset when I said we might not have them. It wasn’t a battle worth fighting, and my mom thought it would look weird if only his side had flowers, so now it’s corsages for everyone! Blech 🙂
