    No.  I actually broke away from tradition.  We decided to do just Mothers, Bridal party(2), and my readers who included 2 sisters and my Grandma.  We had less than 40ppl  @ our small intimate wedding.

    Im on a 300 dollar flower budget.So I dont even know if we will even have corsages or boutineres for the guys and girls.I plan on having a bouquet for myself and for my five girls.If I have money left over for other flowers,then fine.But I dont think we will.

    I wont be surprised if I hear people say,u have to have corsages and boutineres for the guys.UUhh,no we dont.We dont HAVE to do anything.

    I don’t think that corsages or boutonnieres are necessary at all.  Neither my fiancé nor I like the look of them and we don’t intend to have any.  If our moms ask for corsages, then they can have them.  I don’t think they will, though.

    I think it depends on your family. Are they super traditional?

    We’ll have two grandmothers at the wedding, one of his and one of mine. I know my grandmother couldn’t care less if she has a corsage, but his grandmother is likely to get offended and make a fuss if she isn’t recognized in some way – hence, corsages for both!

    @Earlybride:I spent under $300 for 16 centerpieces, 10 bouts, 5 bouquets, 2 corsages and extra flowers– you can do it!

    We gave corsages and bouts to the parents only. 3 our of 4 of my grandparents are deceased and the last one was too ill to attend, so we didn’t want to call attention to the fact that they weren’t there by giving DHs grandparents special attention.
