Our Buttonholes & Ladies Corsages


"Let’s not forget the buttonholes. So whether your groom is wearing tweeds, a suit or formal wear - let’s chat buttonholes."

The little flowers worn in the lapel of the men's suits at a wedding are known as buttonholes. Sometimes referred to as boutonnières, they are usually worn by the men in the bridal party: the groom, best man, ushers, father-of-the-bride, father-of-the-groom, and sometimes the page boy. The buttonhole should match the style of the wedding party flowers.

On wearing a buttonhole, the rule is to wear it on the left lapel. If there’s a buttonhole on the lapel, which is typically the case with traditional coats and jackets, the stem is to be pushed right through until it’s secure with the loop beneath the buttonhole. Ideally, the buttonhole should fit three quarters of the flower, so the flower head isn’t free to move around! If the lapel is sewn up, commonly seen on more modern coat and jacket designs, the buttonhole is to be pinned onto the fabric. Ensure the flower head is also pointed up towards the left shoulder!

We do try and ensure that the buttonholes are fitted correctly on the wedding party as part of our installation service.

It is important to consider what the groom is wearing. If it is a tweed we would recommend a more rustic feel to a groom wearing a formal suit.

Corsages are worn by the Mother of the bride and Mother of the groom.

We would take into account the nature of the outfit that these ladies will be wearing. If they are wearing a highly floral print then we would recommend a simpler corsage rather than one with lots of flowers in. This can be developed as we go along of course.
