I have to make the final decision on Wednesday about corsages. Here is my problem.
My Godmother… To get her one or not.
We are not having a church ceremony, so the florist said no. My mom is afraid that she will be hurt if I don’t get her one. The problem falls with her husband…he always refers to me as his goddaughter, but I am not, and he has early on set dementia. I don’t want him to be hurt by me not getting him a boutonniere. Then if I get them one, then I feel that the aunt and uncle I am closest too should get one, plus they are traveling quite far to attend the wedding. Then there is the other aunt and uncle…I don’t want them to feel left out. They are all going to be at my parents when I get ready (trying to save time on photos). So what do I do??

I say get one for your godmother. You have a different relationship with her than you do with your aunts and uncles, I don’t think it’s typical to order corsages for aunts and uncles unless they’re involved in the wedding ceremony. I really feel that if you know that there’s something that you can do to make someone feel special – or avoid making them feel left out of everything – you should do it, especially if it’s something as small as a corsage. I don’t think it matters whether you’re getting married in a church or somewhere else, you should go with what your gut tells you to do.

My two cents: yes for the godparents, no for aunts/uncles.
I also agree with MsVoyageur- doesn’t matter where you’re getting married- if you want to recognize someone, do it! Another option vs. corsages is nosegays- we made these for my two SILs.
