In addition to the mothers and grandmothers you mentioned, I’d get them for the personal attendants and the guestbook attendents.  I think those people who are putting forth the extra effort to help you for that day deserve some floral recognition.

I wouldn’t get them for the reverend and the soloist.  They’re both hired vendors and I don’t see the need for them to have flowers.

How close are the guestbook attendants & the personal attendants to you? (what are personal attendants? I’ve never heard the term before) If they’re fairly close to you, I would see if I could provide them with a small corsage, but then you have to think of what they’re wearing (do you have control over that?) and what colours would go with their clothes, or if you would just give them a corsage made from the bridal parties flowers or to match the moms/grandmothers?

Reverend and soloist do not need corsages. I don’t even think a reverend would wear one? That just seems weird to me.

Hope that helped.

@bebefly: My florist told us that corsages and bouts should always coordinate with the wedding flowers, not what the individual people are wearing (because we’d thought about the same thing).  Or if you wanted to make sure that the flowers would coordinate with clothes/dresses, just make the corsages and bouts white!

@Mrs.KMM: that makes, surprisingly, a lot of sense. #duh. 🙂

@milesbella: I’m originally from IA, too! And I agree that the flowers are a must even though they’re becoming less popular. I’d get one for your the mothers, grandmothers, PAs, the soloist (if it’s a friend, not if it’s a ‘vendor’), anyone who’s doing a reading for you, the guestbook helpers (and gift carriers if you have them). I know that it seems like a lot, but I figured anyone that we’re listing in the program (that’s not a paid vendor) should get a corsage to make them feel a bit extra special.
