Actually, I just through that out half-kidding, but why not?  It would fold flat for storage, or maybe even be mounted in a scrapbook.  Or, some one could collect the sashes, and a crafty person could fashion each one into a fabric-covered picture frame that would be returned to each of them, with a picture taken at the wedding. 

Another idea: just supposing you found brooches that were open at one point.  And you tie on a half-inch-wide  ribbon or ribbons with the colors used in your wedding, and hand lettered "Mother of the Groom" on the ribbon.  If you look around, you'll find a pen that works on fabric, and doesn't bleed. Gold or silver would look good on a darker ribbon, it's hard to read on lighter colors. 

   Though, if they have any sense of humor, I'd still go with the sashes.  And if they didn't have a sense of humor, I'd be pulling out the tiara from the teen accessory store at your local mall, as well.  'Cause I sure as heck have a sense of humor, I'd like to see their faces.

Not sure when you are getting/got married but if you are still looking for ideas, I heard of the bridal bouquet having different sections that come apart and are given to the moms either as the couple is about to walk back down the aisle or at the reception.  Just as an idea...

Actually I have heard of the same type thing with the  bouqet being in pieces.  The one I heard is where the mother, mother-in-law, grandmothers, etc would all have a portion of it and would bring them up to the bride as she reaches the front.  Then they would all be tied together for the bride to hold as one bouqet signifying a piece of each of the families coming together (or something along that line).

You could make (or have made) a ribbon corsage.  So all ribbon, no flowers.  I guess I'm imagining something like a bow for a gift, of really nice ribbon.  But less like gift-wrapping and more like an elegant ribbon thingy.  It could be made to look like a flower (ribbon rose) or have little fake blossoms.

I thought of the ribbon corsages too. I also really like the pageant sashes and the brooches. I think that either could be lovely. Not sure if you're getting married in a building or not (this might not work out too well outside), but you might have them each carry a lighted candle. They might each wear ladies gloves that are elegant. You might make them elegant handbags that they can carry down the aisle. Perhaps some distinctive jewelry, for instance, have each of them wear a string of pearls?

It would be awesome if you could get brooches that are like lockets, so that they open up and you could have the date and a thank you engraved on the inside, and maybe put a baby picture of you if there's a picture slot (for the women on your side, a picture of the two of you for his side, maybe).  You could include a card saying something like "thank you for being a part of all the most important moments of my life" and give them as gifts at the rehearsal dinner.  (but don't forget to ask them to wear them!)
