They are not required.   The matching pocket squares sound like a cute idea!  It’s YOUR wedding–do what you think is best for you and your Fiance.

They aren’t required. I think the groom should have one, but no one else really needs one.

My grandparents didn’t want their corsages either.

I am doing the EXACT same thing! My bridesmaids have no bouquets – they are holding muffs for our winter wedding, the groomsmen have no bouts but have pocket squares, the groom has a bout, but I am doing special guest bouts however I am just buying some roses from the grocery store and making them myself… and I’m getting corsages for the mothers and our 1 remaining grandmother from the grocery store but I still think they aren’t really necessary…

We had no bouts or corsages. Honestly, seeing my guys dressed up was good enough for me. Asking them to wear flowers, too, just seemed like I was being greedy. LOL And I don’t see the point of corsages for the women. They always look a little fug to me.

We did pocket squares (didn’t find any I liked online so I made them myself) and I didn’t miss the bouts at all. I made little matching bouquets of 50 or so stems of lavender for the mothers/grandmothers (4 total) but I don’t even think that was necessary
