A traditional boutonniere has a single flower or a single focus flower with a some smaller filler or greenery. A traditional corsage has three focus flowers, sometimes with smaller filler or greenery. As to whether the groom’s is the same as the groomsmen’s, that is up to you. Most of my weddings I try to tell a little story with the flower types I use in the personals, and I usually use an element in the groom’s bout that is common to the bride’s bouquet. I would recommend against making a larger boutonniere if the groom or groomsmen are also wearing pocket squares, as that can be overwelming.

@Goodatlove:  For my bouquet, I used lots of garden roses, a bunch of different wildflowers and tree fern. My MOH had a smaller version of my bouquet. In the boutonnières, we did DH’s boutonnière with pink, yellow and white wildflowers with tree fern, BM’s boutonnière with purple and pink wildflowers and tree fern and the ring bearers had one with yellow, pink and tree fern and the other with pink and purple wildflowers and tree fern.
