Hmmm, for our wedding, the following people are getting bouts/corsages:

 Groom, Best Man, Ring Bearer, FOB, MOB, MOG. Possibly ushers, but most likely not. Mr. Kiwi isn’t close with his grandma so she’s not getting anything, but I would include grandparents, if he was.


First cousins? Nope. I have too many, and they’re not playing any important role, so I think t hat’s fine.

all parents, all g-parents, groomsmen, ushers, Ring Bearer, Flower Girl, that’s it.  i have never heard of cousins or aunts.  my florist didnt have those blanks on the list when we went through what to order.  i think ushers should have bouts though – esp if they paid to get a tuxedo.  they are just sometmies a little simpler than the GMS and it’s not a very big cost.  oh yeah,  i added a corsage for my reader too.

For our wedding the bouts will go to: Groom, Bridesmaid or Best Man, GMs, FOB, FOG, grandfathers, and BIL not participating in wedding party

The corsages will go to: MOB, MOG, Sisters/SILs not participating in the wedding party, grandmothers, and a reader. 

We’re not having ushers, guest book attendants or gift table attendants.


Hope that helps!

I wanted to mention that the ushers are just going to walk down the mothers, one usher for each mom, and that’s his only job and he’s not buying a suit or renting a tux. Does that make sense? We’re also not having guest book attendants or gift table ones, either.


I have a question: what about readers?

I’m planning it:

best man/groomsmen
father of the bride
father of the groom
my brothers

MAYBE my uncles… not sure yet.

mother of the bride
mother of the groom
my grandmother

MAYBE my aunts… not sure yet.  i’ll probably have to though.

if i have ushers (meaning my sister’s friends that she invited and i’m putting them to work) then i’ll get them one.

Plain and simple:

Groom, Best Man, Groomsmen, Ushers, Father of the Bride, Mother of the Bride, Father of the Groom, Mother of the Groom, Ring Bearer, Grandparents. And since my brother is my Man of Honor, he of course gets one as well 🙂

The only uncle that is getting a boutenierre is the one that’s officiating the wedding.
