Now who gets to choose what the groom's buttonhole is going to look like? How much of a say will your husband-to-be have? How would he feel about a green orchid?
In general what you could call the bridegroom's 'personal floral dÃ©cor' echoes the bride's wedding bouquet, usually picking out one or two blooms that will match and co-ordinate. For Scottish weddings a thistle is often sported in the lapel.
Personally I love the mis-matched buttonholes worn by the bridegroom and his bestmen in the shot below, courtesy of London florist Rebel Rebel. Fabulous.
Anyway, here are some ideas to get you thinking and possibly show your fiancé? And remember, a buttonhole adds the perfect finishing touch to the bridegroom's outfit.
