A Boutonniere for a Modern Groom
When you compare bride and groom attire, the bride far surpasses the groom in glitz and glamour. While the bride can express herself by her dress choice, veil, hair, makeup etc., the groom generally ends up in a suit/tux and tie. However, a groom can express himself through his boutonniere. The boutonniere is a great place to bring in a little something special or sentimental to the groom’s attire.
The boutonniere originally began in 1840 when Prince Albert cut a slit in his jacket to wear a flower his bride-to-be Queen Victoria gave him from her bouquet. Although a flower is traditionally placed on the groom’s lapel, a modern twist on this old tradition, would be the perfect addition to your husband-to-be’s attire.
