My mom saw this at a wedding and loved it. She really wanted me to do this (begged me) but I thought that combining so many flowers made my own bouquet a little bulky and logistically, it was not easy to do with silk flowers. I had a MONSTROUS bouquet before i scrapped that idea.

I’m sure "sprays’ is the key word, not "mini bouquets" lol

That’s a neat idea! I love it! Of course I’ll techincally have 2 mother in laws (one is FI’s aunt, but she already calls me her DIL!) I like it.

I love this! I often wonder about the first person to do these things… do they get credit or did someone else "steal" the idea and claim it was their own? LOL
We’re giving our moms small bouquets instead of a wrist corsage (I HATE wrist corsages! LOL), and we’re having a Rose Ceremony which is sort of what you described only a little more formal. 🙂
Also, since only FI’s maternal grandmother is still alive we’ll only have to get one extra small bouquet (but if all the other g-mas would be there they’d all have one anyway! 🙂 ).

We are doing small bouquets in tussy mussies for the moms and g-moms. Wrist corsages seem too much like prom, and none of them want anything pinned to their dresses.

That is a super sweet idea! I think that would be a disastrous tear maker for my mom 🙂


I am doing tussy mussys for the moms & gmas. My Mother-In-Law (from IL) had never heard of them, maybe its a southern thing. But she loved the idea of doing that over corsages.


I am going to share the idea with a newly engaged friend, I think she’d love to do that!

I like this!  Very special!

We are going to do the small bouquets.  I think.  Future Mother-In-Law is a minister, so she’s marrying us, and it’s wonderful of course but it’s making the logistics kinda weird.  Like, my mom really wants to do the unity candle thing, but we’re going to have to have Future Father-In-Law light it with her instead of Future Mother-In-Law since she’ll be at the front of the church (we’re at an Episcopal church and we’re using the other alter for the unity candle).  Anyway, I think if I handed her a bit from my bouquet, she wouldn’t know what to do with it or where to put it.  I’ll have to think on this. 

Thanks for sharing!!

We did small bouquets (nosegays) of the flowers they carried at their own weddings.  His mom had daisies and my mom had gladiolas.
