Wedding day flowers guide: Don't forget the mother-of-the-bride, mother-of-the-groom and Grandma!

Create a custom corsage or nosegay design for your mom, mother-in-law and grandmothers to make them feel extra special on your wedding day!

Make sure to give mom something extra special on your wedding day. It is standard wedding etiquette to have a special corsage or nosegay made for the mother-of-the-bride, the mother-of-the-groom and grandmothers on either side.

Corsage - A traditional and popular floral decoration for the women in your immediate family is a corsage. You can work with your florist and decide whether or not you would rather have a wristlet or button-on style for your MOB, MOG and grandmothers. To hide unsightly floral tape, request the wristlet include satin ribbon for an elegant finish. You can also add on pearls, diamonds and colored rhinestones if you please to make each corsage fit for the person wearing it.

Nosegay – Did you know that nosegays (also referred to as "tussie mussies") were used back in 19th century London to sweeten the street's aroma while walking around town? Both men and women would carry around a small bouquet of flowers. Later on, men attached smaller designs to their coat lapels while women would fasten them to their petticoats. Now that you've been fully educated about the nosegay, you can think about this alternative floral decoration for moms and grandmothers.

Which should you choose - Since nosegays have a bit of history and nostalgia to them, your grandmothers would adore having customized designs they can attach to their dresses on your big day. These small, yet elegant, flower designs are typically fastened in a pretty stem holder. Keep the design simple and classic with a few garden roses that fit your color scheme, sprinkled with baby's breath.

Keep your mom and the groom's mom trendy with a corsage that can be worn on the wrist. For a special touch, ask your florist to add their favorite flower to the design.
