    Was just discussing this with the florist!

    The Mom’s will be getting “carry corsages” which are basically small bouquets and are for “younger mom’s” according to my florist.

    The Godmothers (who are other) and Grandmothers are getting pinned corsages.

    We did pinned corsages for grandmas (more traditional), wrist corsages for our readers, and then our moms actually each carried a small posy bouquet instead of wearing a corsage.

    We’re doing little personalized brooches instead of corsages…

    Our mothers carried a single orange rose. My mom didn’t want anything pinned to the delicate material of her dress and she said a flower on her wrist would make her feel like a teenager going to prom. My grandmother begged me not to give her any flowers. She said “they’re a pain in the ass and get so wilted by the end of the night, it’s depressing.”

    Just ask what THEY would prefer.

    Moms, grandmas and my aunt who was my “day of coordinator” all had wrist corsages.

    We asked which they would prefer.  Some went with wrist, others with pinned.

    Moms & personal attendants got wristlets

    Grandmas and Godparents got pinned corsages

    (just a FYI, pinned are less expensive – like half – than wristlets if you’re on a budget).

    @inky_1:  Ha, well we’re just doing Godmothers, not Godfathers…and the reason we’re doing them is because they’re our 2 readers.

    Wrist corsages remind me of prom and school dances. We’re going with pinned.

    For me, wrist corsages scream Prom and high school dances. We’ll be doing all pinned.

    Wrist corsages, but they don’t look anything like prom corsages. They’re on a nice wide pearl wristband and a single flower with some leaves.

    I went with wrist because I hate how on some fabric, the corsage can pull at it. I wasn’t sure the fabric or style of the dresses everyone would be wearing (and have 5 women, wasn’t going to chase them all for their outfits), so I figured wrist was easier. I also find them less distracting in photos.

    I ordered wrist but got pinned corsages…I didn’t pick up the flowers so I didn’t get to check them out.  But they looked fine.  I ordered wrist because thats what the moms wanted.
