So I’m in a bind. I really hate crosages. I think that they look weird and obnoxious and as such I really don’t want to have my mom and my Future Mother-In-Law wear them. My mom is totally ok with it since she is wearing a strapless dress and understands that it would look like she’s got some flowers sprouting from her boobal area. She’s worried though with not getting one for my Future Mother-In-Law. She thinks that she will be hurt.
Instead of a crosage, I talked about getting a nice arrangement to have in their room when they arrive with their Out of Town bags.
What do you all think? Do I just have to suck it up and have the, IMO, horrid looking boobal arrangement just to make sure she’s not hurt.
Oh, and it’s not something that I can talk to my Future Mother-In-Law about.

I’m not crazy about corsages either. I’m doing petite hand-tied bouquets of 5-6 blooms for the Moms. The only one getting a corsage is my Grandma- cause she’s old school – but it’s a wrist corsage.
I don’t think they’ll be hurst as long as you recognize them in some way.
I’ve also read about some brides giving the Moms a brooch to wear or giving them a single long-stem rose or lily

Ah, jewerly would be an option. One more thing to go buy…but I like that a lot more than boobal flowers (sorry, gotta have a laugh somewhere). I could see how a grandma would like some flowers.

We did not do corsages for the moms or grandmas. We DIYed flowers and just didn’t think it was that big of a deal. Additionally, my mom was really adamant about not wanting one (she didn’t want to pin something to her dress or feel like she was going to the junior prom). I was wondering if my Mother-In-Law would want one, but she was totally okay without it.
