Button hole, Flowers Posted On: April 27, 2012

Wedding buttonholes have come a long way from the rigid single blooms of the past.  While roses and carnations are still a popular choice for traditionalists, we are now seeing a spectacular array of floral choices from orchids to sea-holly to pepper berries and everything in between! The tradition of the buttonhole has evolved over many years.  In Medieval times, a knight would wear his ladies colours over his heart as a declaration of his love.  And in Ancient Greece, the Groom would wear a small bouquet of herbs on his outfit to ward off evil spirits.  All of these traditions have translated through the ages to the Groom wearing a flower on his lapel from the Bride’s bouquet as a symbol of his love and fidelity. At First Class Functions, our talented florists will work with you and your Groom to create a stylish buttonhole to compliment his (and his attendants) outfit.
