Flowers for the mother of the bride
Wedding flowers are not only limited to the decor and bridal bouquet. Don’t forget about the bridesmaids, groomsmen, and the mother of the bride. In fact, it’s not just the mother of the bride, but also the mother of the groom who should be presented with a beautiful corsage or other decorative floral piece.
Flowers that can be worn by mum include wrist corsages and pin on corsages. Consider mum’s outfit and preferences before placing your order. You should also be prepared to order one style for the mother of the bride and something different for the mother of the groom – just in case their preferences differ. Take the time to ask these important ladies what they would like to wear.
Alternatively, if they aren’t keen on wearing flowers, you could offer them each a small but elegant bouquet. These bouquets should be similar to the overall floral decor style but not exactly the same. For example, the bride’s bouquet should stand out above all the rest. Next, the bridesmaids’ flowers should be similar to the bride’s bouquet but smaller. If the bride is holding pink roses, for example, you can have your bridesmaids carry white roses. For the mothers of the bride and groom, you might like a pink and white bouquet which can consist of roses or other flowers if you prefer.
Jewellery is another option and floral jewellery is fortunately in abundance. Floral jewellery comes in all colours and sizes. From delicate gold and silver pieces, to those of the costume jewellery variety, it’s easy to find something to suit your budget. If your mother or soon to be mother-in-law does not have pierced ears, you could shop around for clip on earrings. Like your corsages, you should always make sure that you ask about the type of outfit they will be wearing as well as their personal preferences. While some prefer larger earrings, others are more inclined to wear a more delicate design.
No matter the type of floral accessories you choose, it’s important to make sure that you order the same or similar item for both mothers. You don’t want one to appear as though they have received something of greater value.
