    None. I think corsages are hideous, and bouts are “for men” (as we were told LOL). Our parents were fine with this and didnt care about flowers.

    orangeblossomhoney :  I’m all for gender-neutral language (and flowers) but in case anyone is interested, boutonnieres are usually for the guys. The name refers to sticking the flower through the buttonhole of their lapel. Corsages are generally a bit bigger and worn by women, either pinned to their clothes or on a strap around their wrist.

    A single rose for each. Cheaper than buying corsages and less of a hassle than going DIY.

    I would ask their preference. Many women don’t want to pin a corsage through their dress fabric if it is delicate. Some don’t like wrist corsages (count me in) because they get in the way.

    Other possibilities are mini bouquets or tussy mussies.

    I personally hate corsages. They seem so high school prom and, again this is a personal preference, I think they’re tacky on grown women.

    But Darling Husband said Mother-In-Law would be heartbroken if she didn’t have a corsage…so I compromised and ordered MOB and MOG each one flower with a ribbon tied around it and gave them the option of carrying it. I would’ve preferred nothing, but it wasn’t an argument I wanted to get into.

    I’m making all my flowers out of ribbon. I asked all the women what they would prefer to have and most said they’d want to pin something small to their lapel like the guys. So I made an identical pin for them. On sister in law has asked for something she can put in her hair because she’s got small kids and she was worried that anything on her lapel or on her wrist would get in the way/destroyed. I did a hair comb with a flower on it for her since she has long hair. And step Mother-In-Law has asked for soemthing in her hair because she really likes hair accessories. I attached a flower to a really large clip for her since her hair is short.

    We asked what they wanted and they all wanted corsages.  For my mom and my Mother-In-Law we asked that the corsage be made out of a pearl style bracelet.  We thought it made it look a little nicer.  I don’t have an exact photo but here’s something similar that we used for inspo

    Mob/MoG had wrist corsages, Grandmas had pin on ones, by their request.
