I am often asked what are the grooms flower expenses. 

Here is a quick reference that list the 4  Flower Expenses for Grooms

  • Bride’s bouquet
  • Boutonnieres for groomsmen/ushers
  • Corsages or nosegays for mothers
  • Corsages or nosegays for grandmothers

When I prepare floral proposals for couples, I always prepare two separate proposals – one for the brides florals and one for the grooms florals.  Some bride’s families will request just one proposal with everything combined; especially if they feel the grooms family may not be aware of this tradition.

A lot of groom’s and their parents simply do not know they are responsible, or expected to cover any flowers associated with the wedding day.  This was not a common thing in the past.  

At Southern Productions, we provide our couples with a checklist upfront on who pays for what, so there is no confusion from the beginning.  We send the groom a copy of his responsibilities and will be in contact with his parents (with the permission of the bride and/or groom) as well.  We like to take that burden off the bride and her parents so everyone can enjoy the months leading up to the wedding instead of worrying about asking uncomfortable questions!
