Dress? Check. Catering? Check. Flowers?? Wait.. who gets those again?
It is easy to overlook this simple yet essential detail of who specifically gets flowers, bouquets, and boutonnieres at your wedding, but we are here to help! Here is a complete list of which persons should receive floral additions at your wedding.
Pretty simple here! The bride receives the bridal bouquet and any additional arrangements for the getaway or for the bouquet toss. Remember, the bridal bouquet should complement the dress and not be too extravagant to overshadow it. Here are ideas of bridal bouquets that we have done:
The groom wears a boutonniere on the left suspender or lapel of their suit jacket or button-down shirt. The boutonniere’s colors should complement the bridal bouquet as there will be many pictures of the bride and groom together, and you do not want this to be the detail that clashes.
Each bridesmaid should hold a bouquet. Bridesmaid bouquets should not be as elegant as the bride’s bouquet as you don’t want to take away from who the day is all about anyways!
The groomsmen and ushers should follow the groom’s suit and wear a boutonniere. It is still a tradition to pin the boutonniere to the chest, suspender, or lapel, whether wearing a jacket or not.
The grandmother and mother of the bride should receive corsages that can be worn in various ways. The most popular ways to wear a corsage are by pinning the corsage to the woman’s clothing or by wearing the arrangement on the wrist. For the grandfather and father of the bride, it is customary to wear boutonnieres. Professional tip for grandparents: Let them choose where they want to wear their flower arrangements.
Likewise, the mother and grandmother of the groom should receive corsages. Following suit, the father and grandfather of the bride should also wear boutonnieres.
The officiant should receive a boutonniere as he is the one who is leading the ceremony. It is not necessary to give usher’s boutonnieres. Still, it does help signify them as important, so if guests need assistance, they know who to go to. Any male readers should also receive a boutonniere.
It is customary for the flower girl to receive some sort of floral arrangement to throw out of her basket. An optional touch is to add several flowers to the flower girl’s hairstyle or a flower crown; this should make her beam from ear to ear!
Lastly, your guests are here for you! When you are deciding who gets flowers at a wedding, give them to whoever you think is important. If you want to provide flowers for the family dog, give FIDO some florals!!!
This is a list
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
