Traditionally your buttonhole is to be worn on the left hand side lapel (because its above your heart!) on the outside of the buttonhole, not in the actual buttonhole. Ensure that you and your Groomsmen, all wear their buttonholes on the same side.

Stems of the buttonholes should point downwards towards your toes, and the buttonhole always lies flat against the lapel.

Secure to your lapel with the existing pin and use the single pearl-headed pin to attach from the back of the lapel (behind the collar of the suit) – vertically down through the stem of the flower (like a stake).

Alternatively you can push though horizontally to the other side of the lapel.  By placing the pin at the back of the lapel, the pin will be invisible from the front.

Ensure that your buttonhole/corsage stays secure in place sitting vertically and does not swing around or move.

Having a button hole (or boutonniere) can really make a difference to the groom, groomsmen and father of the bride/grooms’s suit at wedding. It adds the finishing touch that provides a sense of style and completeness to the whole wedding party. When else do you get to wear something as beautiful as this! A small gesture like a buttonhole can speak thousands!
