    I had my florist plan for corsages for the mothers and grandmothers when preparing my quote – but I plan to ask all the moms and grandmothers if they actually want to wear one, and if they don’t that’s fine.  I think it’s a nice way to distinguish them, but I think some people don’t like corsages because they seem old-fashioned or prom-like.  You can also do pin-on corsages, but some people don’t like those because they don’t want to poke holes in the fabric of their dress or blouse.  I also went to a wedding where the bride’s mother carried a very small bouquet during the ceremony, instead of wearing a corsage.

    @hunnybee123:  Yes, it’s basically worn like a boutonniere, but it’s usually bigger and more lush – though you could have a simpler one that is similar in style to a boutonniere.  Google some images of “pin on corsage” and you’ll see lots of different ideas and examples.  🙂

    My Mother, Mother-In-Law, and grandmothers on both sides wore pin on corsages.  They were sort of like what my Father, Father-In-Law and grandfathers wore but were a little bit bigger and prettier 🙂

    I love Tussy mussy’s instead of corsages. Pin on corsages can be difficult on lightweight or sheer fabrics.

    Our moms wore wrist corsages, and DH’s grandmother wore a pin-on corsage. They all really enjoyed having some flowers to wear.

    We are doing this…they will be a wrist corsage attached to a bracelet that they can then keep to remind them of the special day 😀

    I’m not a fan of corsages so our moms carried nosegay bouquets (basically just a mini bouquet).

    Here’s my moms. Don’t mind the tears…

    We are planning on ordering 8! MOB, MOG, SMOB x2, 2 grandmothers, 2 special honorary grandmothers. Now I’m thinking maybe I should ask them first if they want one? I sort of wanted them to be a bit of a surprise on the day though. Hmm.

    Haven’t decided this yet, though my mom said she doesn’t want to wear one.
