So we are having problems with our florist. She did the flowers for my brother's wedding and some of the white roses were already turning brown on the day of the wedding and she told us she cut them the night before so that shouldn't happen. I was going to have corsages for the mothers and boutonnieres for the fathers that were white roses that way no matter what they wore the flowers would match them. Because of this problem I have decided against any white flowers because the florist claims that's what happens with white flowers. Instead, I am picking flowers that will match the outfits they are wearing. My MIL is wearing purple so I sent her some pretty corsages and we agreed on the one picture below. My mom has not picked her dress yet (she decided to get a new dress), but she wants purple and blue orchids for hers. I had that for one of my proms and she loved it. I'm now trying to figure out the boutonnieres. My mom thinks my dad should match me since he is walking me down the aisle. I will have red roses with baby's breath. I think my dad should match my mom though. Who does the father of the groom normally match? As for my FIL, we don't know what he is wearing. My fiancé's parents are divorced so they will not match. My fiancé is supposed to be finding out what his dad plans on wearing so I can pick a boutonniere out for him to wear. If he doesn't find out, what would you suggest I have him wear?
