Original Buttonhole Ideas for your Wedding

7 Sep 2015

​Buttonholes date back to Medieval times in Britain when Knights of the Realm wore  flowers on their lapel in their lady’s colours, often with added herbs and foliage, to demonstrate everlasting love.

Today, buttonholes are a wonderful way to involve the groom and groomsmen in the bride’s chosen floral style.

8 original male buttonhole ideas

We’ve pulled together some of our most original and exciting buttonhole designs to show how they can be used to add a personal touch to your wedding.

1. Rustic buttonhole


This buttonhole features a single white dendrobium orchid with dark green leaves and natural corn, reflecting the bride’s rustic floral theme.

2. Textured buttonhole


Here a single blue thistle with a sprig of rosemary created a simple yet dramatic buttonhole to accompany a natural textured theme.


3. Contemporary buttonhole


This contemporary wedding called for a striking purple calla lily with glossy green leaves for the groom, complemented by ivory calla lilies were used for the other male buttonholes.


The style reflected the style and colour scheme of the bridal and bridesmaid bouquets.

4. Classic buttonhole 


A single ivory rose was the perfect match for the bride’s classic hand-tied bouquet of ivory large headed roses.

5. Summer buttonhole


This unusual buttonhole features a striking combination of hellebores, rosemary and foliage. The seasonal hellebores for the buttonhole and bouquet were cut fresh from the bride’s mother’s garden.

6. Winter buttonhole


We combined a white rose with  silver eucalyptus foliage, silver Brunia nuts and mini pine cones for this winter wonderland wedding.

7. Berry Buttonhole


Berries and seasonal foliage are an effective choice for autumn weddings. These buttonholes feature sprigs of fragrant rosemary and rich red berries.

8. Country garden buttonhole


This single Amnesia rose with eucalyptus leaves and a small sprig of rosemary was a stylish choice for a country garden style wedding in romantic shades of pink and ivory.
