Buttonholes ~ What Are My Choices?

Having met with many brides and grooms to discuss their wedding flowers we have found that predominately it’s the brides, bridesmaids and their mums who get most excited about choosing which flowers are going to feature in their day.

This being said grooms often come along to the meetings and we love it when they have an input and actively encourage them to get involved in the meetings, more and more grooms are getting involved in the choice of flowers and how the whole day will be styled.

The buttonholes are one of the areas where your groom can really get involved. But what are your choices for buttonholes? Well, the tradition is that the groom would wear a flower that has been picked from the bridal bouquet, so whatever he chooses should reflect the flowers in your bouquet.

Rose Buttonholes

A single rose in your choice of colours, cream roses being a popular choice with a touch of greenery which would be the foliage used throughout your day, or for a lighter look we often use gypsophila.

Here we have shown an ivory rose with ruscus and another ivory rose with rosemary. To add texture to rose button holes we use berries or beads depending on your overall style or for a more blousy button hole we can use a double rose with snippets of hydrangeas and gyposophila, shown below using Amnesia roses. These could be created with the same variety of roses you are having throughout the rest of your wedding.

Seasonal Buttonholes

If roses aren’t your style and you are not having them throughout your day we would suggest an alternative flower depending on the season of your wedding. This could be anything that would be sturdy enough to use as a buttonhole and would usually be a flower that we have chosen to use elsewhere on the day.

Depending on the style of your wedding we can finish off the stems of the buttons holes to suit, we can keep to a traditional green stem or cover with hessian / twine for a rustic look or ribbon in the colour of your choice.

Wrist Corsages

For Mother’s of the bride and groom a simple button hole in a neutral colour is a lovely choice. However if their outfit doesn’t suit a button hole but they would still like flowers we often suggest a handbag corsage or wrist corsage. Below is an example of a wrist corsage which can be made with flowers to tie in with your day or the colour of an outfit.

The final question is who should you get button holes and corsages for. We suggest starting with the bridal party, Groom, Best Man, Ushers, Dads. Corsages for Mums. It’s often a lovely gesture to add button holes or corsages for any grandparents or anyone doing a reading. You may have a few extras you wish to include brothers, bridesmaids partners etc. It is completely up to you who you offer button holes to.
