flower options for MOB

I really don't want a wrist corsage or a pin on corsage. Can you think of another alternative? Thought of something to pin on a clutch purse.

    What does your mom want?  I asked what mine preferred, and she wanted a wrist corsage.  All of our flowers were made of paper, so I found a nice fabric cuff to attach them to, and it looked really nice.
    This is a neglected planning bio.

    Sometimes I feel like people think that brides are delicate little flower princesses who get all dressed up and pretty for one special moment of their dreams, when really they're just normal people who just happen to be getting married. Things shouldn't have to be sugar-coated for grown-ass women. -mstar284

    For my daughter's wedding, we (MOB and MOG) had small nosegays that matched the wedding flowers. Mine had the fall flowers with a yellow rose in it and hers had a peach rose.

    My mom had a beautiful wristlet that looked like a bracelet.  But, I saw this thing on a David Tutera where they put peacock feathers and calla lillies on a simple clutch.   Also a small elegant nosegay could be really nice and later you could use one as a toss bouquet! Save some cash (if she doesn't want to save it) Good luck! I'm sure you'll pick something beautiful!

    Ha! I'm the MOB.  So far something attached to the clutch is most appealing.  D says it is up to me.

    I like the feathers with a flower idea.

    What about a flower in your hair?

    You can pin a corsage to your clutch.

    Hey Minnesota!  Welcome back.  And this time it really IS a flower question!  =)

    I don't like wrist corsages at all.  Neither my MOB or MOG dress would support a pin on corsage.  So, my florist suggested something different: 

    Here's what I did for our son and DIL's wedding, and then again for DD and SIL's wedding. 

    I had a tussy mussy.  I hope this link works because this is the one I have.

    My son was married first, so I had the charm engraved with his wedding date.  I had a lovely little nosegay of flowers in it.  Three years later, DD was married, so I had the flip side of the charm engraved with her wedding date.

    When youngest DD gets married, I'm going to have another dharm attached with her wedding date and use the tussy mussy a third time.

    And now it's in my china cabinet~a lovely reminder of two wonderful days.

    Mini mom bouquets are becoming more popular now. Take 2-4 stems that you use in your bouquet and you have your mini bouquet for the mothers.

    suz:  that's almost exactly what my flowers looked like at my kid's wedding.  The only difference was that instead of the stems being wrapped, they were in the silver tussy mussy.  The picture you showed was so pretty!
