Wedding boutonniere alternative?
I am not such a fan of floral boutonnieres for my wedding day look – it feels a bit prom-like, in my opinion. Should I wear a floral boutonniere to stay in-line with tradition?
Answer:Floral boutonnieres are traditional for grooms, as you mention, but not obligatory. The floral boutonnieres tend to look prom-like when the flowers are very large and kind of floppy on the lapel. If you do decide on a floral boutonniere, ask your wedding floral designer to make it small. If the boutonniere is really not your thing, consider a lapel pin. Lapel pins come in many different styles including leather flowers and gold leaves. Be sure to check out our collection of Fleur’d x The Groomsman Suit lapel pins.
