Wedding Traditions: Boutonniere

Button hole

The floral button hole or correctly named ‘Boutonniere’ is one of many wedding traditions that you may find yourself adopting.  Far from it being seen as an outdated practice this is one tradition couples seem keen to hang on to.  We love the way your other half can add some personality to maybe a traditional styled suit; and it doesn’t have to be your florist that puts this together either. There are many creative handcrafted ideas about from knitted versions to  paper flowers, as well as lego and fantasy figures also.
