Sophisticated Corsage Options

Corsages are used to recognize the special women at your wedding - mothers, grandmothers, readers, stepmothers, or any other immediate family members who are not in the wedding party.  Here are some corsage options to consider.  The traditional corsage is pinned just below the shoulder and near the collarbone.  Typical pin-on corsages can be made of multiple flowers or made of one bloom, maybe a cymbidium orchid or a rose.

Another option is a wrist corsage.

You may want to recognize your mothers a little differently.  Two ideas that I like are giving them a corsage that attaches to their purses or giving them a small bouquet or a few stems to carry instead of wearing a traditional corsage. 

A few things to remember: Try to use a flower that matches the rest of the wedding flowers.  You can personalize the corsages by using the wearer's favorite bloom.  Click here for instruction on how to pin a corsage.
