Wedding etiquette states that the groom, the best man, ushers, fathers of the bride and groom should wear a buttonhole as well as other important members of the wedding party such as grandparents and paige boys.
The choice is endless when deciding what flowers to use for buttonholes:
- Co-ordinating the flowers with the general theme of your wedding
- Complementing the colours used in your wedding
- Flowers that the groom likes
- Flowers that are in season and easily available or inexpensive
- Herbs such as lavender or even vegetable leaves/blossoms!
- Inclusion of feathers, lace, ribbons...
- Button buttonholes are all the rage too!

Love this one from Nic's Button Buds! You could put a picture of a family member such as grandparents who have passed over but you want them to be remembered on the day. So perfect to place them close to your heart on such a special day!
