I have been having nightmares about this issue.

We are also doing pocket squares for our guys instead of boutonnieres We only have his mom and my grandmother to get for, so we have decided to either get them a flower brooch or a hat from this site: http://www.victorianrosedesignerapparel.com

@MadtownBride: We are doing pin corsages for our mom’s/grandmothers. But we also will be doing this little thing during our ceremony where we go to eachother’s mom & give her a rose/flower. It’s just a symbol of the 2 families now being one.

@caramia10- we are doing the flower exchange also!

We are having corsages done for the mothers and grandmothers and we are attaching them to a silver cuff bracelet so they are comfortable and stay in place. This was an idea from our florist.

@MadtownBride: Thank you. I haven’t decided whether to get them each a hat or one of the brooches. I might get them one of each. My grandma is blind and she loves to sit in her garden, so I thought a hat would be appropriate for her. My future Mother-In-Law might get upset if I don’t get her one too, but I might just get her a brooch and my grandma a hat. I am deathly allergic to flowers, so we won’t be having any real ones at our wedding. I also have a hard time giving flowers because they just die after a couple of days. I want them to have a lasting keepsake and something they can use more than once.

We’re doing corsages – they’re pin corsages – hadn’t really thought about their dresses, but whatevs I’m sure they’ll be happy to wear them!

My florist gave me the option of a magnet corsage instead of a pin corsage.  You can’t tell a difference by looking at them but you won’t run the risk of hurting the dresses.

We’re doing wristlets for the moms and grams. My mom’s dress already has a brooch of a flower on it, so I didn’t want to compete with the style of her dress.

Am I the only one who really doesn’t like the idea of corsages? Pin or wrist it just screams prom to me. I think my mom kind of wants one though. I just feel like… who ISN’T going to know who the mothers and grandmother are?

Well, FI’s friends and family, and some of my friends wouldn’t know my parents on sight. Pins should be fine, even on light dresses – just do one pretty light-weight flower.

Our mothers are going to have li small/mini nosegay bouquets. The florist suggested it.  That way during the reception they don’t have to worry about them being in the way for dancing and such. Grandmother, readers, etc are all having the traditional wrist corsages.

For our mothers we did wrist corsages as thats what they specifically asked for and for grandmothers they got pin corsages which worked fine with their dresses.  there were no problems pinning them or keeping them upright and in place!

We gave the moms an option of either the wrist or pin-on corsage.  That way if they were worried about their dress they could go with wrist (or if their dress had detailing that wouldn’t work with pin on).

Not too long ago I came across magnetic corsage holders.  That way you can have a pin on corsage without actually pinning it.
