@MrsBrightSkies: We’re doing pin-ons because they both are wearing jackets so it’s not on their actual dresses. I wanted to say too that I absolutely love the idea of carrying a single rose – I think that would look great!!

@rachaelrobin:We did the same exact thing. I thought the mini bouquets were cute and much more modern.

We are doing wrist corsages as a preference from the mothers and grandmothers.

We’re thinking of gifting MOB and MOG with brooches from a local jewelry store – they will serve the dual purpose of a special identifier on the wedding day, as well as a special gift to the moms 🙂

I love the word “nosegay.”

I really don’t want to do corsages for the moms at all and my mom said she doesn’t care either way. I haven’t asked Future Mother-In-Law yet, but I’m really hoping to just skip them and save money. The only trouble I can see with skipping them is that any of FI’s family who hasn’t met my mom probably won’t realize she’s my mom because she looks so young and fabulous. 🙂

We got small bouquets (mini bouquets) for the MOB and MOG.  It’s simple, they can carry it for the ceremony and it won’t mess up their look for the day.

@Maryoke56:I am a MOG too. I agree, with you on the corsage. I do not want to have something elst to carry around like a nosegay or a rose. Where would you put the thing during the receiving line and so forth? Give me the corsage and let me feel special.

We’re doing vintage brooches for the moms and grandmothers (per the request of my mother). They won’t wilt and that way they can have a keepsake from the wedding. My Fiance and I are thinking about having a small message engraved on the back to make them more personal.
