Q. I saw your answer to the question about the responsibilities of the groom and his family. I have two other specific questions: 1. "Corsages for all immediate family members" - the groom's family or both families? 2. Who traditionally pays for floral arrangements for the church?
A. The GROOM is responsible for paying for the Bride's bouquet, the bride's going away corsage, corsages for the mothers and grandmothers on both sides, plus all of the boutonnieres. The bride's PARENTS are responsible for all the decorating costs (which includes the floral for the wedding PLUS bridesmaids and flower-girl bouquets.
