i'm having a flowerless wedding.  flowers just aren't really my thing and spending 90 billion dollars on something that will die the next day kills me a little, so i'm not doing it.

i have a ribbon rose bouquet, flower girl will have ribbon rose pomander, bridesmaids will have button bouquets, groom and groomsmen will but using pocket squares for cohesiveness.  i think the dads (we have no grandfathers  Sad ) will be doing squares in another color.

what to give moms, grandmas (4 people total)?  ribbon rose corsage?  button corsage?  i'm somewhat handy with metal, so a brooch of some sort?  what do you think would work?  anyone have ideas for inspiration?  i haven't found anything i like...

I think a ribbon or even paper corsage would be really classic and beautiful.  Buttons are really in vogue now with the younger generation, but they might get a little heavy for a corsage and moms and grandmothers might prefer something a little closer to traditional.  The broach idea is lovely too, if you make them to coordinate with the fathers.  Plus, a broach is something they can wear again and therefore far superior to a fresh flower corsage.

Combine the ribbon roses with the buttons?

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.

I love the ribbon rose idea.  I made wrist corsages with wrapped ribbon... (My sister called these my "crafter hands" haha)

Mine was with coffee filter roses, but I'm sure it'd be lovely with ribbon roses!

I'd be happy to try to find the tutorial I used for the wrist part/ make a new tutorial, if you're interested!  I searched forever to find one I was happy with.

PS - I had a flowerless wedding too! Cheesy
