Who gets a flower?

 It is customary to give members of your wedding party and close relatives flowers to celebrate the special occasion. Feel free to distinguish close friends and other significant people in your life with flowers, too.

 Boutonnieres are usually presented to the groom, groomsmen, ushers, the ring bearer, fathers, and grandfathers. The groom’s flowers are often larger, more detailed, or a different color than those of the other gentlemen. While the groom’s boutonniere typically coordinates with the bride’s bouquet, the groomsmen’s flowers should complement the bridesmaids’ bouquets.

 Boutonnieres are pinned to the left lapel of the men’s jackets. The flower should face away from the wearer and be secured by a couple of pins.

 Corsages distinguish the important women in your life. Your mother, mother-in-law, grandmothers, godmothers, readers, cantors, and any other special ladies will likely be honored to receive a flower.

 There are three types of corsages: flowers that are pinned onto the left lapel or bodice, wrist corsages, and hand-held corsages. Hand-held corsages, or nosegays, are becoming very popular. These petite bouquets closely resemble the bridesmaids’ bouquets.

 Pin-on corsages are sometimes difficult to adhere to silk or sheer fabric. Opt for a wrist or hand-held corsage if this is the case.
