I loved this incredibly romantic wedding I created at Louise and Brent’s Family farm.
The gorgeous shades of apricot and white in the bridal and bridesmaids bouquets are breathtaking and went so well with the apricot bridesmaids dresses the girls wore. Not to mention the ceremony and reception decor – the mix of rustic and romantic was just perfect.
A boutonniere, also known as a buttonhole, is the male version of a corsage. It is affixed above the heart, on the left hand side, of a man’s suit. The flowers of a boutonniere can match the bridal bouquet; however, they can also be unique and match the man’s own style. Flowers are not required, and things such as greenery, berries, herbs, and shells have been used. If flowers are desired, popular choices include roses, orchids, and lilies.
Who wears a boutonniere? (more…)
While Geraldton brides have a whole lot of detail going on in preparation for their wedding – from the dress, to the shoes, to the bouquet, veil, jewellery etc, men usually wear a suit with a nice tie or bowtie. However, in most cases men also wear a flower on their jacket lapel. This flower, which may only appear on one other occasion – a school formal – is a boutonniere, or ‘buttonhole’.
What is a Buttonhole or Boutonniere?
“Boutonniere” is the French word for buttonhole. It is typically worn at formal events such as weddings, formals, or nights out at the theatre or the opera. It is worn on the left lapel of a men’s jacket – the same side one would wear a pocket handkerchief. The boutonniere is attached above the heart. (more…)
It isn’t just brides who can wear flowers on their wedding day! Yes, a groom’s suit can be complemented perfectly (and can allow him to complement his blushing bride too) with a well designed buttonhole. Often created using a bloom similar to that on his wife-to-be’s bouquet, a buttonhole can tie together a simple suit and create a splash of colour.
