We’re doing the following:

My Mom – one flower to attach to her clutch

My Dad – bout

His Mom – Corsage to pin on chest

His Dad- bout

Groomsmen – bouts

Ushers – bouts

If we had living grandparents they would most certainly get a flower/corsage and bout.

Also, we have 3 readers.  Two women will be getting corsages and the man a bout.

Our guest book attendant/program hander outer – corsage


It’s a lot but we just want everyone to feel included too.

so…how about my grandparents girlfriends? both grandmothers have passed, but i dearly love the girlfriends…i would feel strange leaving them out but i’m not sure if it’s legit. one has been around since i was a little girl and one has only been around in the past few years. thoughts?

I have on my list: Groomsmen, Ring Bearers, Fathers, Grandfathers, Godfathers, Readers, Godmothers, Program Attendants, Grandmothers, Mothers.

I think it’s just for the important people in your life and wedding party that you would like to have stand out on that day.

I am giving flowers to pretty much everyone that it crosses my mind to give them to. Better to do so and be inclusive and gracious than to unintentionally slight someone. I am giving corsages to my dad’s wife, and to my stepdad’s stepmother (my step-step-grandma, who’s husband, my step-grandpa, is passed). I am also giving flowers to our readers, ushers, and guestbook girls.

I really dont want to get Future Mother-In-Law a corsage, i dont think she deserves the recognition after all the things she’s done to try to destroy and sabotage our wedding, and they’re not contributing AT ALL (financially, emotionally, nothing) but I also don’t want to be looked down upon for not doing so.


Do I really HAVE to?
