I have seen many of pictures where the mothers of the bride and groom have their very own little bouquets. maybe that is an option if you dont like the wrist corsages?

You can definitely do the flower on the dress or even purse. I am bad at this so I don’t know the correct term for it.

Flowers Mom’s wear on their dresses are called pin on corsages.  And Chantellamus mentioned small nosegays (bouquets) for the Mom is an option too.

I wanted to do boutonnieres for the women who wore flowers, but since both the moms paid over $500 for their dresses, they weren’t too keen on the idea of pinning anything on.  Just one thing to consider.  Maybe they could carry mini-bouquets?

I’m not sure what the correct word is either.  I’m having my florist design the mother’s and grandmothers flowers to either be worn on their dress or their wrist, that way they can decide the day of.

Ok wow, there were a lot of responses while I composed my post.  Disregard the bouquet suggestion!

just on the bouquets for moms – my mom and Mother-In-Law both had very small bouquets just to walk down the aisle with and for formals. they both said they liked "having something to hold" – otherwise they wouldn’t have known what to do with their hands. neither wanted a pin-on corsage or a wrist corsage – i agree, a bit prom-y!

My mom made her own wrist corsage and it’s kinda ugly! Very prom-y. And it has these stringly pearls coming off it in a weird way.

Whatever, i’m not dealing with it. She wants to wear it, fine. I’m secretly dying inside a little b/c it’s so prom! ha. 

Be careful with anything that pins onto the dress b/c they are usually a soft chiffon that may not hold the weight well. 

What about the neato stuff on etsy that isn’t real? then the flowers don’t leak sap or bleed onto your gowns. Feathery ones and lace, etc. So pretty.

Does your mom have short hair? If not you could have your florist attach some live flowers to a comb she could wear. I had a bride do that for me (I was MOH) and it was so nice!

I asked our moms what they preferred and both wanted pin on coursages.  If the mom’s are wearing a strapless dress, that might cause a problem.  The ladies coursages are different from the bouts.  The coursages usually have a few flowers where the bouts are just 1 or 2.

Just ask your mom what she would prefer and go with that.

Did you ask your mom?  I think the basic options are pin on corsage, wrist corsage or nosegay.  Personally, my mom loved the nosegay.  She really appreicated something tohold on to.  Maybe it was a fidgety, nervous thing.  But if it’s not your mom’s thing, maybe she’d be fine with a corsage. 

Edit: Would she like flowers for her hair?
