A traditional buttonhole is a single flower with a selection of greenery. Trends are changing and we are seeing buttonholes looking like a cluster of mixed flowers, rustic to look like they have been freshly picked and tied with string. Both equally stunning.
Corsages are a little larger than a buttonhole. These are more often given to the Mother of the Bride and Mother of the Groom, although they seem to also be a favourite of Grandparents. Corsages are traditionally worn on the ladies jacket. Influences from America have seen the change and are now more commonly worn on the wrist. They can also be attached to bags and hats.
General rule of the buttonhole wearer is men to the left and ladies to the right (and not upside down please). That’s because ladies are always right!
