I’ve never heard of it but it sounds sweet & I’d do it, esp if my grandmother was requesting it. I don’t think it’ll be awkward as long as you keep 2 of the flowers easily detachable from the bouquet & aren’t struggling to pull them out.

Yeah, I think having two flowers easy to pull out of your bouquet, or possibly even holding them so they appear to be part of the bouquet, but not actually bound to the rest of the flowers.

It may also be a bit awkward unless both the mothers are front and centre (possibly even standing at the end of the aisle for you?), so you don’t have to do too much moving around. Perhaps ask your grandmother the origin of this tradition and how she’s seen it done in the past? If she’s asked you to do it, I’m sure she’s seen it done somewhere else!

I would just hold them next to the boquet! Then have them sit on either side of the aisle!

Just hold two stems separately from the bouquet wrap so that you aren’t fishing it out.

It’s been awhile, but I have seen this and thought it was sweet, giving each mother a part of her bridal boquet.  As I think back I remember some hugs exchanged at that time as well.
