Bridesmaids/groomsmen flower questions!!

We are having a DW and our resort wedding package includes a total of 4 corsages or boutonnieres.. I have 6 bridesmaids and my FH has 4 groomsmen.... any additional corsages/boutonnières are from $30-$45 each... I am trying to stay in budget so I’m definitely not doing the bridesmaids bouquets because those are $80 each (such a waste of money lol).

So my question is, would it look weird if nobody from the bridal party has corsages or boutonnieres?? And I’ll just have our parents wear the ones that are already included? Or pay for the additionals?

what would you do??

thank you Smiley smile

    I think having the parents wear the ones included and not having ones for the wedding party sounds more economical in your case

    I don’t think it would be bad to not give the WP any flowers. If you want to give the BMs something to hold, I’ve seen pictures with fans or cute glittery clutches, but I definitely don’t think it’s essential.

    I think it's okay to not have corsages/ boutonnieres for the wedding party. Limiting those to family should be fine!

    Could you have just one flower that each bridesmaid carries and a very simple bout for the groomsmen? This could even be something that you pick up locally and do it yourself since it is so simple? Or could you negotiate simpler bouquets/bouts with the venue? If not, it's fine if they don't have anything, just trying to think of ideas.
