Your parents are considered part of the bridal party, especially if they are part of the processional. You can have both of your parents give you away, or an usher or groomsmen can escort mom to her seat.
Your bridesmaids will be carrying bouquets, even the flower girl will carry a basket of petals. Give the moms blooms to carry too.
The traditional style for mom is the corsage - just like the kind you wore to your prom. A corsage comes in two styles: pinned and wristlet. The pinned kind will make a permanent hole in your mom's beautiful gown, and the wristlet can be itchy and get in the way when eating and dancing.
Tip #3: I recommend having a small bouquet, or posy, made for both moms. The flowers should be made up of the same color and blooms that are in your bouquet and the bridesmaids, and should match dad's or her escort's boutonniere.
The posies featured here were designed by Botanicals based in Chicago.
