A stylish buttonhole is the finishing touch to the groom’s outfit. We create buttonholes with style and detail to ensure the groom’s flowers fit with the wedding flower theme.
My advice is to always link the buttonholes to the bouquet flowers. This can be done by using the same main flower like a rose or by coordinating the colours. I like to think about how everything is going to look in the wedding photographs.
Some of our gents like to keep things simple and everyone wears the same buttonhole, it’s entirely up to you.
Lots of couples ask me “Who should wear a buttonhole?” If you want to stick with tradition, then it’s the groom, best man, both fathers, ushers and pageboys. Also if you have any brothers that are not ushers then you might want to include them. One person not to forget are any granddads, they are often from the generation that would expect to receive one. If you’re planning a more casual wedding that’s less formal, you might want to just provide buttonholes for the groom, best man and the fathers.
For gents that don’t really want or like flowers, we have made lots of alternative buttonholes featuring things like wheat as seen in the photo above for a country wedding, feathers, fir cones and simply just foliage.
It’s very popular to make the groom’s buttonhole stand out in some way. This can be achieved through the use of colour or choice of flower. We sometimes make the groom’s wedding buttonhole to match the bride’s bouquet and the rest of the gents’ buttonholes to coordinate with the bridesmaids’ bouquets.
Buttonholes are worn on the left lapel. They sit on the front of the lapel and should not be placed through any buttonholes on the jacket. They are then pinned on the back of the lapel so that the pin is hidden from view.
Our most popular wedding buttonholes feature roses, calla lilies, gerberas and orchids but please enquire about any other flowers that you are interested in having.
