Latest Wedding Theme Grooms Buttonhole 2012


A buttonhole is a small flower decoration which is secured to the lapel of men’s suits, usually with a pin. Most couples planning a wedding decide to order buttonholes for the male members of the wedding party, in particular the groom and best man. Other guests who may wear a buttonhole include groomsmen, the father of the bride and the groom’s father.

Choosing buttonholes that match the overall wedding theme is key, and many couples decide to match the buttonholes to the brides’ bouquet or other wedding flowers. If you have different flowers for bridesmaids than for the bride, you may choose to vary the buttonholes for the groom and groomsmen too, to highlight the specialness of the groom on his big day.

If you’re choosing different buttonholes for the men at the wedding, you could choose to alternate the main flower but keep a secondary flower the same for continuity, or have a different colour main flower, i.e. a red rose for the groomsmen and white for the groom, which could be matched to accessories like ties, cummerbunds and pocket squares. Another option is changing the foliage on the different buttonhole types, however this will be more subtle than different coloured flowers, which will stand out and be easy to see on photographs.

Female guests can also have buttonholes, but these are often called corsages, and your female guests may prefer a more fancy corsage that can be secured to their accessories like a bag or hat instead.
