    Check out etsy, if you or someone you know is crafty you can also consider faux flowers. I met a woman at the capital wedding show in Ottawa who rents faux flowers out, there are already assembled centerpieces, garlands, she even had arches. I don’t know if you are in the Ottawa area I can share her info, if not, maybe asking around on your local wedding facebook groups might help turn up someone near you who does something like that. She is really affordable, and her stuff is beautiful!

    I just learned this recently!! I initially thought A, but my florist told me no!! Answer is B. Corsages are worn by women only, men only wear boutonnières and not corsages

    Corsages by women, boutonnieres by men...?

    Not all corsages have ribbons? And you can wear a pinned corsage...

    B: There are some corsages that are pinned on the dress, but we are going with wrist corsages.

    *We are potentially mixing it up by having our best woman wear a boutonniere with a suit (if she goes that route)

    B) Corsage is worn by women (whether it's on their dress or wrist) and includes more than one flower; Boutonnières are worn by men and typically only includes one flower or bud.

    A for this one - I guess if a girl was wearing the flowers in her buttonhole, it would still be a boutonniere.
