    Should my groom wear a boutonniere if he's wearing a short sleeve shirt with no jacket? Now that I actually thought about it, all the pics I've seen, the grooms are wearing in on their suit jackets?

      That depends on if he wants to wear one or not. My FI refuses (says flowers are for girls) he can be sooooo dumb sometimes, he drives me crazy!!!! Go to google images and type in destination weddings, and there are tons of pics of guys in short sleeves wearing bouts. So if you can convince him to wear one then I say go for it!

        I think a boutonnaire on short sleeve shirt is fine. What color shirt and pants is he wearing?

          My FI and his groomsmen are going to be in white button up shirts and we just don't LOVE the way the boutonniere looks without the jacket ~ we just kind of felt like there wasn't really a "natural" place for it the way there is with a suit jacket.

           

          BUT, if you two decide that you like the way it looks, then by all means have them wear one!! I've absolutely seen it both ways :)

            My now-husband wore one on his linen shirt...granted it was long sleeved...but I wish we would have scrapped the idea of getting him a bout. After the first couple of hugs, it looked like crap...and the darn thing was flippin' and floppin' all over the place...we had to keep straightening it out for the pics. Ughh...it was a pain.

            My husband wore a bout on his short sleeve shirt.  Looking back I wish we would have not had any.  I'm not a fan of them but I suppose they were okay.Here is a picture.

              This is a great question. Initially we were considering tan linen jackets/pants for our groomsmen but we thought about the warm temps and think it may be best to just consider short sleeve shirts for the men.  The quote I received for flowers is quite pricey so not doing the boutonniere may be a win win situation.

                my husband and his groomsmen wore bouts with short-sleeves and long-sleeves rolled-up. I guess it's all personal preference and what you think looks right! :-)

                  Thanks everyone for taking the time to respond and add your photos. I'm still on the fence about this, but it's nice to hear everyone's opinions. Thanks ladies!

                    Thanks for the discussion. I hadn't thought about it. My FI will be wearing a short-sleeved shirt and now I am worried how it will look. Bout is included in the resort wedding package, so maybe I will wait to see what it looks like and then decide.
