The Humble Boutonniere


Boutonnieres– they look great, but why do we wear them? Most of us don’t think twice about it. It’s a tradition, we know that… but why? What’s the significance behind the classy floral lapel piece? Whether you’re a bride-to-be or a groom planning his signature look, this simple piece of decor adds a bit of flair and professionalism to an important event’s fashion agenda, and here’s why.


Back in the days of knights, lords, and ladies, young women would traditionally give favors to men they cared for. These gifts were often made from the same color the women wore themselves, making the gifts symbolic of their love and partnership. This later evolved into the boutonnieres we have now, as they are worn by the groom to show support and partnership with the bride. 


Nowadays, boutonnieres are a beloved fashion favorite, as most men at special events like weddings or formal dances will wear a lovely adornment that matches the dress of their other half. There are so many different designs and styles to choose from, which can be a little overwhelming when you’re planning your perfect event.
