Wedding flowers & buttonhole flowers

The first thing that comes to mind when you mention wedding flowers is the bridal bouquet and not for a second would anyone think about the buttonhole flowers for the groom and the rest of the male wedding party. And whereas it is true that the bridal bouquet is the star of the wedding party flowers, let’s spare a passing thought to the seemingly minor little accessory called buttonhole flower or boutonnière… Traditionally worn by the groom, his best man and groomsmen, fathers and close male members of the family, it is a seemingly a small detail that you can easily oversee. But what it lacks in size, it makes up in significance and symbolism. For when did you last see a man with flowers pinned on his lapel on a normal day?

I’ve curated a small selection of some of the buttonhole flowers I’ve designed over the years.  And girls, do please send this link to your groom  – he mighty want to have a say in the flower choice and style for himself and his party. With almost 30 styles, colours, shapes, flowers and sizes to chose from, there’s always a winner, but I am pretty sure which one will be the ultimate favourite buttonhole flower. Can you guess??
