my step mom’s is a LITTLE different than my moms (same as my FMIL) only because my mom is paying for most of the wedding, so I wanted hers to be more special!

I would say it’s OK to have step mom’s corsage be a little different than mom and Future Mother-In-Law.  I would say, could you have say step mom’s corsage something like the bouts?  Then have the mother’s have corsages that are a little more special.  Maybe something that matches their dresses, or flowers that they have chosen/love.

That way if step mom knows she matches the the Bridal Party bouts, she might not feel like she’s been slighted.

All the women are the same, all the men are the same.  I figure staying consistent across the board leaves little room for complaint.  I think of it like when you give things to 5 year olds – they better have the same number of marshmallows in their hot chocolate and the stuffed animals better be the same size!   So if everyone has the same flowers, no one can feel better or worse…if they do, then it’s wholly their issue and not mine.

all my women are having the same–mom and step mom 🙂 it’s just easier for me that way…i agree with @ladyox–if they all have the same, nobody can complain(hopefully).

I decided to do different corsages for my mom and stepmom. Each in their favorite colors so no one feels slighted. What a tightrope it is!
