Our moms and grandmothers will be wearing corsages – probably pinned to their chests.  My mom is old fashioned and would be devastated if she didn’t get one.

@sonj818: i agree with you. It feels promy to me. I am not having them and I think my Future Mother-In-Law was upset when she heard that she wasn’t getting one (She had one at FI’s brothers wedding a few years ago)… oh well, it’s not her day.. It’s MINE!

Our florist did the wrist corsages on cuff bracelets. It was a nice modern upgrade and they were very tasteful and organic looking. When I think prom corsages I think roses choked with baby’s breath; these were as far away from that image as you can get.

It all depends on your florist!

ETA: And while you may never have paid attention to what the MOB has on, it’s meant to be a nice gesture to her.

We didn’t do this. The guys wore pocket squares, my mom didn’t wear anything special. She performed the ceremony, so everyone already knew who she was – no need to point her out extra!

My mom and I met with our florist, and I expressed the same thoughts about corsages (reminded me of prom, fell apart, inconvenient).  The florist said they can be mounted differently so they’re less flimsy, and my mother (who’s very hip and stylish) said she thought they would work fine.  I figured if she’s good with a corsage, then Future Mother-In-Law and the grandmothers will be too.  They’re probably going to take them off after the ceremony, but it’s a nice touch.

The corsage thing was more about our moms’ expectations.  I don’t really care for them, but our moms would think it was weird to NOT have them.  So I’m making my own.  Super easy.

Both my mother and mother-in-law requested NOT to have them. Which I’m fine with because I don’t wanna spend money on flowers.

I wanted to get corsages for my mom and Future Mother-In-Law and since they didn’t know the “style” of their dresses we opted tfor wrist corsages in a white orchid to match whatever colour they did decide to go with.

Our grandmothers. Had corsages, but our mother’s had mini bouquets. They looked really nice. I’ll try a post a picture of them later on tonight.
