    I am trying to save money and I want to know if having the BMs wear corsages instead of bouquets would be super tacky.  Is it a little too high school prom and less wedding?

     

    Honest opinion :-)

      Honestly...... its what I am doing :-) They will have a corsage each and will also be carrying a fan.

       

      I think if they are done properly they look really lovely x

        Thanks!! There is a lady on Etsy that makes the clay bouquets and I am thinking about having her make some corsages instead.  The resort ones are at least $25 a pop and I figure this way they can keep them forever!

          I think it's a great idea! The clay flowers are so unique. With statement jewelry being so popular right now, I think these would resemble more of a bracelet and look great in pictures. Go for it!

            I am thinking about them carrying a fan or a parasol. If they have a fan, maybe attaching some flowers to it.

              I am doing corsages for the mother's dresses. Wrist ones. I dont want them to have to carry around something or have to pin something to their dresses. I am having them made on etsy with real touch flowers so they can keep them.

                    You can certainly do it. Corsages are great and suit well for BMs.

                      I don't think it is tacky at all- I think it can be very pretty if done well!
