    No, we did the pocket squares that came with the tuxes and no one said a thing (We did do boutineers/corsages for the Grandparents). And our moms got smaller bouqets.

    They’re not required and no one will care if they aren’t there.

    No, I doubt anyone will care. We’re skipping them as well.

    We skipped corsages but did bout’s for the groomsmen.  I think pocket squares can be a good option too.  In truth, no one will notice if they’re not there, but they were one of the most affordable flower extras anyhow so we went with them.  It at least let people know who was in the bridal party.

    I don’t think anyone will notice or care!

    Wait, are you inviting my mom?  No?  Ok, yeah, no one will care (lol).

    not a big deal BUT… someone else might care. My mom choose to care- the ONLY thing about the wedding she “put her foot down” and said for the first time “no, you HAVE to” sigh… so I am but that’s only because she’s not doing that about everthing so I’m letting her have her way.

    The women of our family (grandma’s on both sides and my mom) cared. And so did Darling Husband, oddly. So we DIY’d them for cheap and they ended up looking pretty cool in photographs.

    But no, if no one important cares, it doesn’t matter!

    I don’t think it matters. Everyone will be focused on YOU (and your FI)!!

    I’m skipping extra flowers/corsages on purpose.  To save money and because other than our bridal party nobody else deserves extra special recognition. If someone says something oh well.  I don’t think they’re that important.

    The guys can wear pocket squares to make their jackets appear less bare.

    Could you make a brooch pin or necklace for the ladies who would have gotten corsages? Just a little something to make them feel special.

    Parents or grandparents might care… I can guarantee my grandparents would have thought they “missed” something and would’ve been asking around for their corsages/bouts 🙂
