    I don't think so, especially in a nice but less formal setting like you have been talking about.

    I'd say no--but then to me, nothing is a "must." It's also fun to do something non-traditional--a fresh daisy growing next to the venue, or a pretty leaf from a nearby tree. Or something that has meaning to the couple. IMO, everything in the wedding should be designed to make people happy--not in the, "I guess we have to do the money dance to keep Aunt Sylvia happy" sense. In the, "Boy, this sure makes me happy!" sense.

    Well, since we are a little more casual than had she married in a church, I am comfortable with NOT wearing a corsage and after getting on the wedding bee website, I am really happy about this decision. I am, apparently, not the only mother who didn't like the idea of corsages.

    I AM comfortable with the bride giving us (me and two grandmothers)a rose as they leave the area. Settled and I do thank you both for your support!!!!!

    I actually am not familiar with wedding corsages in a formal or informal wedding. I think the mothers spend a lot of time and $ on their dresses and would not necessarily want to pin on a big corsage. Boutonierres for the med, yes.
    Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.
