Who Else Gets Flowers Besides the Bride and Her Bridal Party?

Etiquette, Flowers

A great way to emphasize the role of certain people participating in your wedding ceremony—like dear ol' dad or your sweet flower girl—is to give them mini floral accents that match your wedding flower scheme.

Does anyone else, other than members of the bridal party, need flower arrangements?

Yes, you'll need a few extra small floral accessories to distinguish the special guests who play a role in the ceremony (or are particularly close to your heart!). Ushers, the ring bearer, a male officiant—if he is not wearing traditional religious robes—and any other close male family members (fathers, stepfathers, grandfathers, etc.) can wear smaller or modified versions of the groomsmen's boutonnieres. Meanwhile, flower girls, female officiants, and close female family members can wear corsages, feminine boutonnieres, or carry a miniature version of your bridesmaid's bouquets.
