Response: The bride and bridesmaids have bouquets. The mothers, grandmothers, guest book attendant and any other special women, such as a soloist or reader, get corsages. The corsages can be either pin-on or wrist ones, depending on the weight of the fabric of the mothers dresses. The groom, groomsmen, fathers, grandfathers, ringbearer, officiant if a man and any other men who will have a role in the ceremony, such as readers, get boutonierres. The flower girl usually carries a basket of petals or a kissing ball.
If the officiant wears a robe, he/she doesnt wear a flower. The same is true for anyone wearing a military uniform.
