    I didn’t vote.  

    I will get corsages that can go either way…and let the mothers decide where they want them based on what they are comfortable with and the style of their dresses.

    We chose wrist for all of them. I thought this way would be easier, plus it wouldn’t take away from their dresses. I wasn’t entirely sure what my grandmothers would be wearing either so I thought this was the safest bet 🙂

    I think we’re doing pin-on; I gave the moms the choice and my mother said she’d rather have it pinned on her since she plans to do a lot of dancing and gesturing, and the wristlet might get uncomfortable.  If she changes her mind, that’s okay, too!

    I chose to do wrist corsages.  You never know what dress they are going to wear, so you can never be sure if the pin corsage will work.

    I chose other – our florist suggested small bouquets for the mothers. She mentioned that she has done this many times before and the mothers love it! We haven’t asked them yet what they prefer, but it’s a third option.

    I chose pin-on, as that is what Mom, Future Mother-In-Law, and Granny all preferred.  Plus my girls are wearing wrist corsages instead of bouquets (carrying clutches) so I wanted them to be different.

    We did small hand-held bouquets for the mom’s – but Mother-In-Law ended up buying her own wrist corsage (without my knowledge) so she was all flowered out.

    I am leaving the decision up to my mom, grandma and other special guests – as long as they let me know in advance! I was originally thinking wrist corsages, but depending on the weather, some of the ladies might be wearing long-sleeves and I don’t want a wrist corage to be akward for them.

    I let them pick, and they wanted wrist.

    I prefer pin on corsages.

    For our moms we did tussy mussy bouquets which are just smaller bouquets

    I like the look of pin on corsages better, but we did wrists.  Both my mom and my grandma are wearing a very light fabric and they aren’t sturdy enough to hold the corsage.  I didn’t want them to be droopy and falling over, or putting holes in their beautiful dresses!

    We’re doing wrist corsages. I’m not sure what Future Mother-In-Law is wearing, but my mom is wearing a dress that has a gorgeous strap on one side with a pretty embellishment so I don’t want to detract for her pretty dress.

    We went with wrist corsages for the mothers and pin ons for the grandmothers.
