I’m wondering what you think will look better. My wedding is in the winter and for the bridesmaids they will be carrying black faux fur muffs instead of flowers. I however, will be carrying a big bouquet. I’m wondering if it would look better if the groomsmen don’t have bouts and only my FI have one?
I’m thinking it might look more balanced if only my FI and I have flowers and the rest not. I was thinking of giving them those pocket squares instead. Plus it saves me money. What do you all think? Bout or no bout?

I was all about the pocket squares, until FI pointed out that not all jackets are made for pocket squares (we’re not renting tuxes.. we just told the GMs to show up in a black suit and white shirt). So.. I think we’re going the single flower bout, and ties to match the girls.

I’m partial to the bout, but I think a pocket square that is a pop of color would look great too. You could go either way. And the bouts don’t have to be flowers, they could be just kind of leafy/green. But both options sound good.

DH was the only one who had a bout at our wedding, and I think it looked just fine! Plus, since there were eight groomsmen, it saved us a ton of money :P.
