Your grandparents absolutely should get a boutonniere or corsage. They are guests of honor at a wedding.

As for the best man’s wife, she is not in the bridal party or parents/grandparents so she would not expect to receive one.

We are doing flowers for our grandparents, but none for siblings. 

(There is some tension with one brother, it would be highlighted if flowers were given to him or if they were given to ther siblings and not him.)

In your case, I think that you are giving your brother a bouttoniere because you grew up with him, you love him dearly and/or and he has helped you with your wedding, if Fiance doesn’t have the same relationship with your (F)BIL’s wife (FI’s SIL) then she probably won’t feel snubbed if she doesn’t get a corsage.

My Future Brother-In-Law will be getting married shortly after me.  I wouldn’t be upset if they gave my Fiance (husband by then) a bouttonniere, but did not give me any flowers.  On the other hand, everybody likes flowers, so I’m sure she won’t be upset if you do recognize her with a corsage!

I’m not sure why you would be upset? Your husband is his brother and is a honorry member of the wedding party- not you?

 

good luck!

We’re giving bouts and corsages to grandparents – not to the dates/SOs of the wedding party (including my BIL!).

For our wedding, we got them for the parents, (no grandparents because they are all deceased), and my brother, even though he was not in the wedding party.

I figure that even though we are not super close, he is my immediate family, and deserves some recognition in that way.

@yellow7404:  Of course i wouldn’t be upset… That’s what I said, and I pointed it out because it’s a similar circumstance.  I’ll be the wife of the Future Brother-In-Law to the bride.
