Going to a friends wedding next weekend, do you think I should still order buttonhole and corsage for handbag as I always did few years ago? Do most guests still buy there own, thinking will look underdressed and like don't know how to look for the occasion if I don't buy them.

And they expected this, you say? Bit cheeky, tbh

In Scotland and at a wedding last weekend and they are very much still a thing. I had a wrist corsage,
As did a lot of the other women

They just said they'd be a bit offended if we hadn't gone to the effort, they said they thought it was the done thing!

Ah well, they won’t find you wanting grin 🌷🌹🥀

It's to be a lavish affair, she's an only child and her dad is funding it

Glad to be covered, nervous about going with all of these rules she's specifying at the last minute. Away to buy another present too....

Another present, why?

Another friend going to the wedding was told hers wasn't good enough blush

Thankfully don't plan on keeping in touch post wedding

My god they sound like hard work. They could stick their present up their arse along with the corsage.
Where are you OP? I've been to weddings up and down the country and never come across this.

Ah now, come on... Someone was called out on their sub standard present and dispatched to buy a more suitable one? No way.

North Scotland, never mind. Will just make sure I drink enough to make up for all this hassle!

Ordered, looking forward to wearing tomorrow. Let's hope the day all goes well for her!!
