Personal Flowers at Your Wedding--Boutonnieres, Corsages, Bouquets

Photos courtesy of:

Wedding flower decisions are pretty straight forward: a bouquet for the bride and her attendants, flowers for the ceremony, table centerpieces, but the personal flowers such as boutonnieres and corsages tend to be more of a personal choice and are up to the bride and groom. Some opt for no boutonnieres at all.

In general boutonnieres are worn by the groom, groomsmen, fathers, grandfathers, ushers and ring bearers as well as your officiant if you are not having a religious ceremony. Corsages are traditionally given to mothers & grandmothers, although you can substitute a small bouquet for the mother of the bride/groom.

You may also want to include any siblings that aren’t in the wedding party and their spouses, readers, singers and other important family members including step-parents.

Personal flowers are a perfect way of acknowledging people close to you on your wedding day.
