    I'm having trouble deciding what kind (if any) flowers to do for our Mother's at the ceremony in Mexico! I'm thinking of getting three single stemmed yellow roses for our Mom's, writing something special, and giving these to them just before the ceremony.

    Have any of you tried other things for the Mothers? I don't want to do the typical corsage.

    Thoughts?

    one of the gals posted something that was very sweet...when the bride walks down the aisle, to stop and pull one flower out and give it to the moms...

    i thought that was really sweet.

    i had the mothers wear corsages.

      That is a really neat idea. Thanks!

      My next question - My fiance has a really close 'Mother' figure coming along with us to the wedding. She is actually his best friends' Mom, but is like a 2nd Mother to by future husband and a really close family friend. Two years ago, Casey's best friend passed away and we have all become even closer than before.

      I'd like to do something special for her as well. However, I don't want to diminish or hurt the feelings of our 'real' Mothers. Should I or shouldn't I?

      well, what about having a moment of silence to honor those that could not make the wedding...we did that...steve's best friend and my aunt had passed...that is a way to respect the bf and make his mom feel good...also, maybe in your fiance's speech he can mention and say something about his bf and bf's mom and how important they are etc...

      i just don't know how the moms are so i don't know if they will feel slighted.

        How about giving her a scripture or poem to read. Also include her in the "official" wedding party processional.

        Re: flowers Since my bridal party isn't carrying bouquets I plan on having the moms carry small nosegays of roses (probably 4 + fillers). I also really liked the idea of moms carrying either a purse floral arrangement or bible with flowers attached.

          We decided to have an orchid out of my bouquet put in my FMIL's hair. I think it would be perfect with the dress she got.
