It’s completely up to you really. I’m giving my groomsmen, ring bearer, both parents/step parents, grandparents and the officiant all bouts.

jss77:  It’s really your call. We did wedding party and fathers. You could do more, you could do less.

We did the whole wedding party, parents, and grandparents.  I ordered the wedding party and parent’s as a part of my package, so everything would match exactly (did artificial flowers from someone who arranges wedding flowers on Ebay).  For mothers we went with wrist corsages because my mom strongly preferred it.  For grandparents, I just got pin on boutonnieres from Hobby Lobby – a little bit bigger/nicer for the grandmothers.  Probably spent under $10 for the grandparents ones.  We didn’t get any for the singers or readers, just to save money – and I don’t think they minded.

jss77:  For the guys, we are having the groom, groomsmen, officiant (FI’s friend), both dads and the ring bearers fixed up with boutoneirs. I decided to forgo anything for the moms as I personally am not a fan of wrist corsages and I didn’t want their dresses ruined from pinning anything onto them.

We did the groom, groomsmen, ushers, fathers, grandparents. The moms and grandma got a wrist one because my Mother-In-Law didn’t want to put a pin through her dress. 😛 It’s really your call!

It’s totally up to your discretion. For me, the Groom, Best Man, Groomsmen, Dad’s, and Grandpa’s are all getting a boutineer. Mom’s and Grandma’s got a wrist corsage.

moonchild:  Are the moms good with that?   No way that would go over here.

I would ask the Mom’s what they would like in regards to their flowers.  Some people hate pin on corsages, others prefer wrist, and even others just prefer a small nosegay.

As for who gets a flower that is really up to you.  But typically the parents, Grandparents and wedding party members (including ushers and readers) get bouts.

For the bouts, we went with the fathers, groomsmen, my two male “bridesmaids. We didn’t do them for the ring bearers but gave them something else (without a pin, because the one is very, very young).

For the moms, I just asked them where they wanted them: wrist, pinned, or nosegay. They both chose wrist so it doesn’t get crushed when they’re hugging, and they can easily take it off.

I made bouts for fathers, groomsmen, groom.  I was going to do ushers too (we didn’t have ring bearer or flower girl) but I just didn’t feel like making anymore.

I made my mom a small bouquet to hold while coming down the aisle with me.  MIL didn’t get one, she was weird about the whole thing so I didn’t waste my time

We gave bouts/corsages to anyone who was part of the processional. Bridesmaids of course had bouquets instead.

jw2b:  My Mom didn’t care one way or the other so we (She and I) decided to forgo them.
