Adding extra character to the groomsmen attire is only part of the appeal of wearing a unique buttonhole, they can also double as part of the groomsmen gifts and tie into the entire bridal party’s look. Using the wedding theme, wedding flowers and the colour of the suits as a starting point, the groomsmen buttonhole can be as simple and chic or colourful and playful as desired. Here, we describe seven buttonhole ideas that will only add to his handsomness.
Wedding decorations with succulents are as popular as ever and a single succulent flower in a buttonhole adds an instant edge. Balance the buttonhole with sprigs of greenery, berries and a striking coloured ribbon for a handsome look any time of the year – definitely worthy of being a groomsmen gift.
Think cotton twine, baby’s breath flower, wheat and lavender sprays and you’ve got a truly rustic recipe that’s also cost effective. Feel free to mix and match designs so every groomsmen has an original looking buttonhole. Also consider rosemary and sage as additional compliments to a rustic theme to really accentuate the baby’s breath flower and lavender sprays.
Light shades of blushing pink, blue and dusty green, as well as grey paves the way for an elegant and stylish buttonhole that even the guys can’t deny. The best part is the soft colour combinations can be incorporated into a rustic look just as easily as a formal one without losing its elegance.
Bold, colourful and eye-catching, this buttonhole idea brings a sense of fun from the yellows (billy button flower balls are a popular choice) and oranges as well as keeping it intimate and lavish with subtle jewel tones. Keep in mind that this colour combo provides an impressive contrast on most dark and light coloured suits and should match the colour scheme of the bridesmaids dresses or wedding flowers – particularly with the bright yellow of billy button flowers.
A Touch of Formality
Pay homage to a tradition wedding with buttonholes decorated made with roses or calla lilies in a structured look. Also, let’s not forget a bit of gold here and there definitely brings the look of an otherwise standard buttonhole up a notch (including spray painting foliage or gold buttonhole holders!).
Many brides are starting to add native elements into their wedding flowers, which is the perfect playground for a florist to play with the same idea for groomsmen buttonholes – bringing in various textures and colours for an all-round cohesive look with a slight boho feel. Highlighted below is a mix of E. Crenulata foliage, Corymbia Ficiolia nuts, Pink Kangaroo Paw, creating an eclectic and wild look that’s unique and romantic.
Deep in Burgundy
Fall in love with deep tones of burgundy that’s full of romance and is the perfect colour choice for winter weddings. Plus, burgundy stands out well against navy blue and bluish-grey suits. Match each buttonhole with the bridal bouquets and it’s a match made in heaven.
