My WC said something about bouteniers and I hadn't even thought about it. My FI is wearing white linen drawstring pants and a white linen button up with one pocket. His guys are wearing the same shirt but with khaki linen pants, very casual. Myself and MOH will have bouquets of course, but they can't really do bouteniers with those outfits, right? I would really like to do leis but I know this is really for a Hawaiin wedding and I am in the Dominican. What do you guys think? What would you do?

    My hubby and groomsmen all wore cream linen pants and a plain white shirt with the sleeves rolled up, but they all had a boutenniere. It was just a simple one I think its called bird of paradise (nickname) but it looked quite tropical without being too over the top, which they appreciated! They just pinned it to their pocket on the shirt and it looked quite good!

      Mishi- I think you could probably do leis. I know it is sort of a Hawaiian thing, but it sounds like they would go nice with the GM attire. What flowers/colors are you using? If your flowers aren't what is typically used in leis, they might not feel so Hawaiian. On the other hand, I think you could also do boutiniers, if you kept the flower small and simple.

        Well I was going back and forth on the flower/starfish thing but decided to opt out of doing it for my FI. But that is because he has a color stitching on the sides of his button down shirt and I thought it would look to busy. I think whatever you choose will end up looking great. I've seen it done so it's all personal preferance.

        Yeah, I am doing blue and green and have mentioned using cymbidium orchids, so we will see. I love the way the leis look, I am going to mention it and see if my WC turns her nose up, lol.
