We’ve decided to do boutonnières for the groomsmen and father’s of the bride/groom to set them apart from the rest of the guests. Our planner has also recommended real flowers for the personal ones (as ppl like to get up close and touch them) and faux for anything faraway to save costs (like an arch or head table). Best of luck and congratulations!

Yeah I’m definitely leaning more towards them. I always assumed we’d have them then some pictures on Pinterest had me second guessing. Also, I’m almost 40 and sometimes question if I even know what’s in style anymore haha So I wanted to put it out here. thanks for your feedback and happy wedding!

I was just gonna suggest pins as an alternative to floral boutennaires. I personally don't find them prom like and will elevate the formality of the bridal party over the rest of the guests. My group will have them.
The guys in our wedding party will definitely be wearing them. My fiance and I both love them! I find it really sets them apart from other guests, as well as helps tie the guys together with the girls in the party. But if you decided not too, I agree with the other suggestions about going with a pocket square or something like that.
Our groomsmen will be wearing boutonnieres on our wedding day. My fiance and I really like them and they give the suits that extra touch! We're doing something very similar to this picture. But if you're not wanting to have them at your wedding, I don't think it would be a big deal. You could do a pocket square instead if you wanted to go that way.
We've opted to go with them and I'm pretty excited for the ideas our florist has for them. Our groomsmen and groomsmaids are going to be in a vest and pants instead of a suit, so I don't think it will feel too prom-y and it will help them look cohesive with the bridesmaid's bouquets.
Hey Jennifer! Our groomsmen will be wearing boutonnières for sure. I personally love them and think they help create cohesion between the groomsmen and bridesmaid outfits. But if you’re not into them, I think it’s fine to skip. You can tie the wedding colours into the guys’ outfits via a pocket square or tie—it achieves the same effect. Good luck!
