Hi fellow bees,
Anyone know anything about those ribbons that hang off the buottonieres that the family members wear at weddings? It almost looks like a blue ribbon prize type ribbon that has Chinese written on in it. I assume it says like father of bride or something on it. Where do I get those or am I supposed to make them? Thanks

They usually just come from the florist, I think. Check florists in Chinatown. Are you Chinese, ask your folks, they might know? Good Luck!

I’ve seen them in red on chinabridal.com. It looks like they only sell the whole corsage/boutonniere together:

Yep, those ribbons are identifiers. They include: Bride, Groom, FOB, MOB, FOG, MOG, officiant, Maid/Matron of Honor, Bridesmaid or Best Man, bridesmaid, groomsmen, etc. Even flower girls and ring bearers have them!
I always thought they were so funny! Like you needed a nametag because some people might not know who the bride and groom are. Although there is a lot of labeling for Chinese weddings. We got Chinese-style invitations and we vetoed a bunch of designs because they had "wedding invitation" printed on them.
I would ask the florists (if they’re Chinese) if they can provide them with the personal flowers.

Go to Oriental Fortune Giftland at 95 Chauncy Street in Chinatown (near Winmil Fabrics). My Future Mother-In-Law bought them there and the place is sort of like Chinese wedding central. You can rent a kua or purchase a qipao. They also sell red silk sign in cloths and dragon and phoenix tea set if you’re looking for any of that stuff.

Thank you Alegna! I haven’t been there before, but will swing by tomorrow! I’ve been having the hardest time finding Chinese wedding stuff! Thanks
