    They get corsages, but the corsage can be a wrist corsage or a pin-in one which is sort of like a boutonierre, but itsn’t the same thing. It’s bigger. My florist made the corsages so that the women could choose for themselves, so they had wrist bands and pins.

    the only real difference between the corsage and boutonnierre is that a corsage is usually a cluster of flowers with ribbon and can be worn on the wrist or pinned; a boutnnierre is smaller and usually a single bloom. you can alwasys ask for smaller, simpler corsages if you think it will get in the way.

    We didn’t get the mothers any flowers. Not a fan of corsages (neither is my mother, whom I asked), I personally think they’re ugly and take away from the gorgeous dresses the women wear! (I made my prom dates swear they wouldn’t buy me one too, back in the day, haha). You can get them whatever the hell you want though, and I always think the best thing to do with any question regarding another person is to ask them what they would like!

    Mother-In-Law is getting a corsage, as is my mother and my SIL. My father, Father-In-Law, brothers and my “BIL” (My husband’s sister’s soon-to-be husband) are getting boutonnieres.

    Both the boutonnieres and corsages are going to be small and related to the wedding. My husband will match my bouquet, the best man will match my MoH, the boutonnieres and corsages for the family will be “toned down” versions of my bouquet (Mostly roses & daisies)

    Our moms got small corsages that had magnets on the back so the pins would not mess up their dresses.

    Why not ask them? Most women in dress clothes don’t want to pin anything on and ruin their dresses, and on the wrist or carrying nosegays looks too promish (to me).

    It is traditional to get ‘something’, but not if they don’t want it!

    We did corsages.. We paid a little extra and instead of the uncomfortable elastic bad we did pearl bracelets. They loved them!

    I did pin on for just this reason.
