What About the Men in Your Life? | Boutonnieres

A boutonniere is a flower that packs a punch! This often overlooked detail is the finishing touch for any groom or tuxedo wearer in general.   “Boutonniere”  comes from the french word for button hole, which is traditionally where the single flower or bud was worn.

Boutonnieres are a tradition that have lasted the test of time, and can still be seen today,  pinned to the left lapel of their wearers. Boutonnieres are an opportunity to tie into the flowers being worn or carried by a date or escort.

In the past, boutonnieres were worn more frequently,   but today are generally reserved for formal gatherings such as weddings, proms, homecomings, funerals, and formal ceremonies.  The flower itself was often a carnation and the most formal color was white; another classic choice was red.  Today, many colors and flowers are appropriate for use as boutonnieres and can be use to achieve many different looks.
