Brides often ask if they should get a corsage for the mothers – a pin on or wrist corsage. Both are nice ideas of course, to help honor the women that brought you into the world – without that effort, no wedding would be taking place afterall. =)
Another nice idea is to ahve a small spray of flowers for them to carry instead – nothing to pin on the their dress which may not be good for the fabric or could ruin her look and no scratchy flower attached to her wrist. Just something to carry for the ceremony and photos afterwards – it could even be put in a vase later at the reception, depending on the type of flowers used. Below you will see an example of what our florist did for a wedding a few weeks ago.
These flowers were part of the wedding I like to describe as my most “Xtreme Wedding” yet – I’ll explain in my next post!
