Ballymena florist Sally’s Floral Studio share some inspiration for buttonholes which are a must see for any engaged couple. Maybe you have been planning your wedding for a while or you might have just got engaged over Christmas – either way we hope that these pictures give you some inspiration for the men on your wedding.
Sallys Floral Studio show how classic and clean a beautiful traditional buttonhole can be but we also love the vibrant colours and the Scottish themed Buttonhole which would have perfectly tied the wedding theme and colours together. Here is all you need to know about wedding buttonholes from Learn Wedding Etiquette:
While he does not have to, the groom can coordinate his buttonhole with the bride’s bouquet to express their partnership and love for each other. This doesn’t mean it needs to be the same flower. It can also be fashionable to choose a color which contrasts with the bride’s flowers. The buttonhole can be different from the bride’s flowers while still complementing them. For example, a mint green buttonhole will complement a pink bouquet.
Who Wears Buttonholes
Wedding etiquette clarifies that buttonholes should be worn by the groom, best man, ushers or groomsmen, father(s) of the bride and father(s) of the groom. If there are other important members of the wedding party or family, such as grandfathers or ring bearers, they can wear buttonholes as well.
How to Wear a Buttonhole
The flower should be worn on the outside of the buttonhole. The buttonhole itself should be on the left lapel.
So there you go, all you need to know about the humble buttonhole. It is a simple thing that can completely transform a wedding suit and introduce some colour and fun to your Wedding day. We hope these pictures from Sallys Floral Studio in Ballymena give you lots of buttonhole inspiration.
