The wedding button hole or correctly named ‘Boutonniere’ is one of many wedding traditions, that you may find yourself adopting.  However, traditional doesn’t have to be typical. Couples planning a more unconventional wedding want fabulous creative ideas packed with personality.

The Groom would typically wear a buttonhole always on the left lapel, which specifically ties in with the brides bouquet. It is the only buttonhole that would be designed this way. Giving the bride and groom this unique connection is pretty symbolic.

Alternative buttonholes

Far from it being seen as an outdated practice this is one tradition couples seem keen to hang on to and is steeped in history. It seems men have been wearing floral Button holes for centuries, often in colours to represent the colours of their loves. The buttonhole was first seen as far back as the Ancient Greeks when the groom would wear a bunch of flowers and herbs close to their heart. It was said to ward off evil spirits that might turn them away from their beloved.
