Totally up to you how many flowers you have floating around on the day. I didn't want flowers everywhere and thought I was getting heaps (by my standards) but on the day it didn't seem like much. I wasn't going to have any flowers for our parents but then mum mentioned something about it so I thought yeah why not make them stand out of the crowd as well.

1 bride bouquet
2 single roses with ribbons for BM's
4 buttonholes (1 special one for groom, and then best man & 2 fathers)
2 corsages for our mums
1 cake topper

As my wedding is just a small intimate gathering of 35 and because we are not having a bridal party as such, I have opted not to get my mother and father corsage and buttonhole. My fiancee will have a buttonhole and I will have my boquet and flowers for tables at reception but that is it.

I don't really like corsages and buttonholes that much and I feel that they are a bit old fashioned and not what I wanted at my wedding. But each to their own.
