flower question

what are your mothers doing for flowers? carrying a little bouquet or wearing a corsage?  also for you flower girls what are you doing? petals in a basket or something else?  my flower girl is going to be 1 1/2 and i am not sure she will get the whole throw the flower petals thing so i don't know if i should even bother.

Re: flower question

  • The mother's will have small corsages.  We are not having a flower girl, as my niece is only going to be 2 and I don't know exactly what she would do.  I would say 18 months is too little to understand what to do with flower petals- what I had been thinking of doing was making a little bouquet with some sturdy flowers for our nieces, but I don't think we're going to get into it since we have 6 nieces and nephews between us.  One of my friends got married and her flower girl was pulled in a wagon and didn't have any actual flowers- I think you can do whatever you like (flowers or no flowers).
  • Our mothers will be carrying small bouquets. My mom wanted something different than a corsage. Our grandmothers will have pinned corsages. Our flower girl will be carrying a fabric pomander that will also be lining the asiles of the church. (Our FG will be 3.5)
  • the others will have small corsages

  • We are doing corsages for the mothers, and flower petals in baskets for the flower girls. We have older flower girls though, 5 and 6. A small bouquet  would be cute on a smaller girl!

  • My mother and his mother will have small bouquets.  Our step-mothers will have pinned corsages.  Fathers and step-fathers boutonnieres.

    My sisters and my FSIL will have small bouquets.  His brothers and my BIL will have boutonnieres.

    We wanted all the children at the ceremony to be included, so we bought flower petal cones, and each of them will get to toss rose petals into the aisle; but my nieces (5, 6) appointment themselves "flower girls" so I am getting them small pomanders (probably hydrangeas) and my 3 year-old nephew a small boutonniere.

  • We are doing wrist corsages for the mothers & grandmothers. We are not having flower girls so I'm no help there.
  • Mothers will have wrist corsages, and we have no children in the wedding

  • Our mothers and grandmothers will be wearing corsages on their wrist so that it doesn't interfere with their dress or outfit.

  • Mothers will have a small bouquet and grandmothers will have corsages. My flower girl is a little older so she will carry a miniature version of the BM bouquets. With such a young flower girl, I would probably give her a small pomander to hold.
  • Ditto PPs. Mothers are getting corsages.
    My flower girl will be just over 2. She is getting a pomander with fake flowers (suggested by the florist to use fake... cheaper and then she is less likely to damage it...can fling it around or whatever and it wont break).

    Mothers, readers, and other family members that are helping us out that day will have a wrist corsage. I'm thinking about giving the two youngest flower girls (both will be 4) baskets and giving my older niece (will be 6) a fabric pomander because that's just too much petal throwing lol. (My FI and I have 10 nieces/nephews between us, so we tried to include who we could.)

    With a girl that young, I wouldn't ask her to throw petals; she won't understand.
  • Our Moms are also wearing wrist corsages since pinned ones won't really work with the fabric of their dresses. 

    We don't have a flower girl but I really like the idea of the pomander for one so young.
