Buttonholes and Beyond

Buttonholes and Beyond

Who wears buttonholes at weddings and how to wear them.

Boutonniere = a little flower or floral arrangement. This is pretty much the smaller version of the hand held wedding bouquet to give the wedding attire that extra touch really making the suit pop and stand out as well as tying in perfectly with your partner. 

This is usually for the bride or groom however it can also be for special guests like the Best Man, Parents, Siblings and Groomsmen.

The buttonhole rests on the lapel of the jacket secured with a pin that is not visible or through the buttonhole of the blazer. This can sometimes be tricky securing yourself just before the ceremony is about to start. Everyone is being ushered into the room and the florist has left them for the crew. Don’t worry, our team at Colwick Hall are professionals and can get them whipped on in no time at all, whilst multi tasking. The record holder is Sam with photographic evidence of the skill accrued over many years of experience (17 years and counting) Watch https://vm.tiktok.com/ZGJatm4Ve/ how quick and easy Sam makes it look as the Groomsmen line up. So, rest assured we will have everyone ready with their buttonholes held perfectly on their left lapel waiting for the big moment.

They really bring the wedding attire together and looks great in the photographs. We have our recommended florists and décor team to help put together exactly what you are looking for. Fi is super helpful and will not stop until its exactly how you envisioned https://www.stylish-weddings.co.uk/ However, who says it has to be a traditional flower, also an opportunity to put your own personal touch or match the theme. We’ve seen memory photos, feathers, pampas grass and a new version is a panel of flowers to be simply placed in the blazer pocket.
