Boutonnière or none?

Recommended Posts

My FI will be wearing a suit so he will have a boutonniere, but the GMs will be wearing linen shirts with no jackets. I was thinking either no boutonnieres for the GMs or some sort of lei that is made with just greenery.

 

What have others done or plan do do for grooms or gms who are not wearing jackets?

 

Also, do you think I can get away with a lei in Mexico or is that too Hawaiian?

My DH wore a suit and had a boutinniere, his GM's had on white linen shirts and DH did not want them to wear flowers, he did not like the look of it, so the guys went with nothing. No one even noticed. DH was just against the flowers for the men for some reason, so I let him have his way :)

I am just now beginning to think about this...FI will also be wearing a suit and he doesn't want a boutinere..but I think we will get him one. I am thinking that our one groomsmen will not have one. He too will be wearing just the linen pants and shirt w/ no jacket... so I don't think it' necessary.

My FH is going to be wearing a boutinniere cause he will be in a suit. But the GM are wearing linen shirts so they will definitely not wear one. I think it will look fine that way.

Only my FI will be wearing a suit (well, and my dad). I have decided that Shawn will be the only one wearing a bout. My dad has a tie instead. And then the boys will just be wearing white shirts and I don't think a bout would stay nicely on the shirts... not to mention that's just more I have to pay for. And since they'd be pink roses I think the boys are happy not to wear them :)

When you mean your dad has a tie instead do you mean that your fi won't be wearing a tie?? I ask because my FI doesn't really want to wear a tie but he will be wearing a suit and I'm okay with it but I just wasn't sure how it would look??

Yup, that's what I mean. Shawn will have a white shirt underneath the suit with it unbuttoned at the top. We tried it on when we purchased his suit and it looked really nice.

Oh okay good!!! Because I didn't really want it too formal ya know!

 

Although, since I haven't bought my dress yet....it will also depend on that..but I'm glad others are doing the no tie thing! :)

I wore a shirt and pants, no jacket. Had a boutineierre but wish I hadn't... Groomsmen also did shirt and pant, untucked. No flowers for them...

 

If I did it again, and hopefully I never will, I'd blow it off... First off, they didn't attach it that well, so it was a pain in the ass to keep straight. Second of all, I don't think that it was really necessary.

 

Guess it's just a matter of personal preference...

d'oh, I just asked my WC to pick flowers for the bout's, but didn't even think that the guys would be in white linen shirts. Thanks for the pic, MoWife - I like how the flowers looks with the shirts!
