How to wear your Buttonhole on your Wedding Day – Tips from a Bristol Florist

The best advice for wearing your buttonhole on your wedding day

Your wedding day is one of the most special days in your life, and every detail counts. One small but significant detail is the buttonhole, also known as a boutonniere. It is a small floral arrangement worn on the lapel of a suit or jacket and is a symbol of celebration and joy. It is so worth thinking about how to wear your buttonhole on your wedding day ahead of time.

To wear your buttonhole on your wedding day, you should consider a few things. First, decide on the style of buttonhole you want to choose. For a chic and classic look you may choose a single rose buttonhole in a colour that ties in with the rest of your wedding. For a more informal, stylish look you can opt for a boutonniere – a small mixed bunch of flowers and foliage.

Next, consider the placement of your buttonhole. Traditionally, it is worn on the left lapel of the jacket, just above the heart.

When attaching the buttonhole, make sure it is secured properly. You can use a pin or a buttonhole holder to keep it in place. It is also important to avoid crushing or damaging the flower while attaching it.

Finally, don’t forget to coordinate your buttonhole with the rest of your wedding party. The groomsmen and other important guests can wear matching or complementary buttonholes to create a cohesive look.

Wearing a buttonhole on your wedding day is a small but significant detail that adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to your overall look. With these tips, you can wear your buttonhole with confidence and style.
