HUNTED : { Groomswear – Buttonholes or Boutonnieres }

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Ah, you poor, forgotten Grooms. When it comes to sartorial choices for the wedding day, it can seem like the Bride-to-be is having all the fun. 

Just think of the multitude of options they have to content with. Short or long dress? Lace or satin? Ivory or bright shoes? Hair up or down? Tiara, veil or other? Drop or stud earrings?

You are essentially just deciding if your suit will be more or less formal. But what if you are stylish Groom with a creative mind? Where does your fun come in?

When it comes to your attire there is one area where you can get creative, and that’s with your buttonhole / boutonniere.

#WeddingTip : A buttonhole and boutonniere are exactly the same thing. Brits refer to it as a buttonhole. The rest of the world seems to have adopted the French version boutonniere. Begrudgingly, given France is one of the style centres of the world, I can see why this would have happened.

Floral Buttonholes / Boutonnieres

The most popular option for a Grooms buttonhole or boutonniere is a floral arrangement, based around the dominant flowers in the bridal bouquet.
