Some little thoughts, Wedding Flowers

Here Come the Boys!

Men, weddings and flowers.

There may be a few sweeping statements in this little blog post, and I know there are always a few occasions where people buck the trend, but generally men have little say in wedding flowers. I also know for most men its not always the most exciting topic when it comes to planning a wedding – food, yup I get that, drinks, suits, games, ties, table plans … generally flowers come some way down their list. I’m not complaining, but I do like it when a groom wants to step away from the traditional rose buttonhole. I also love it when a groom says to hell with the bridal flowers, I want something unique thats going to match my suit … so there!


Buttonhole inspiration is something we get asked about a lot, so we thought we’d take a few snaps of some more manly buttonholes to give you that lightbulb moment. I love all of the below for their texture, the fact that they are not too floral, and most importantly they are not massive!


Remember boys … buttonholes don’t have to be boring, they don’t have to be floral and they certainly don’t have to match everything else.
