Nothing completes a dashing suit like a fresh flower buttonhole. The Groom, Groomsmen and the Father of the bride and groom typically wear a buttonhole at a wedding and they are traditionally worn on the left side lapel of the suit jacket. If the wedding is more casual and just a shirt is being worn it is more difficult to affix on the buttonhole and some Grooms opt to leave them out with this style.
A classic buttonhole is a single flower like a rose or orchid on one or two green leaves, but the addition of other small blooms and embelishments mean the options are endless. The buttonhole is worn with the stems pointing downwards and can be pinned or clipped onto the lapel.
At Blackwood Florist we specialise in buttonholes, along with bridal bouquets, bridesmaids flowers, cake flowers, corsages, pedestal designs and table centrepieces.
Often with all the other flowers at a wedding the Groom can feel a bit let out or out of their depth when it comes to helping design the look of the flowers. The buttonhole is where he can have his choice and feel a part of the whole bridal flower theme and can contribute to the whole process.
Feel free to book in a bridal consult so we can work out what you would like and provide a quote in writing. If you’re not sure what you want, don’t worry we specialise in helping you to work it out!
We source all of our wedding flowers from our selection of local market growers, with each flower hand-picked by the owner, so that only the freshest flowers are used in your arrangements.
Blackwood Florist has always strived to maintain exceptional customer service and care in helping you select the right choice for any occasion. We are always happy to help in any way to make your experience in purchasing flowers is easy and satisfying.
