Every wonder why men get flowers on the wedding day?
Some just see it as tradition but never know the meaning behind it. A Groom’s boutonniere usually consists of a flower that was used in the Bride’s bouquet.
It reflects the Bride and Groom tied together as one. That’s also why there IS a correct side to wear the boutonniere on… Not sure which side? I’ll give you a subtle hint: it’s the left.
They are meant to be worn close to the heart. I’d like to think it’s because he always keeps his Bride in his heart. Boutonniere’s are actually quite sentimental and that’s why they are just as important as the Bride’s bouquet.
Groomsmen typically wear a smaller, similar boutonniere to show their support.
Boutonniere’s are a symbol of unity. I truly do enjoy getting creative with these small yet cherished flower arrangements.
