Wrist corsages aren't just for the prom -- these sophisticated ones work for weddings, too. Offer them to the mothers and grandmothers of the bride and groom instead of pinned flowers, which can leave prick marks on dresses. Corsages are also a modern, inexpensive alternative to bridesmaid bouquets. Give each girl a bloom of her own, such as a rose, gardenia, or orchid, and she's got a beautiful ornament she can wear not just during the ceremony, but also through the last dance.
