    Your GM don’t *need* bouts with their pocket squares. I think a lot of times pepole will cut the bouts to save money, since the GM have the color pop with the pocket squares. My SIL did pocket squares and no bouts, whereas I did pocket squares AND bouts. I really think it’s up to personal preference & budget. I did my bouts through our local grocery store and they were $9 each!

    @stephanie1989:  my husband wore both! I let him handle his entire suit situation, and thats what he wanted to do. He had a thomas pink pocket square (and the bout is made of paper, which is why it looks a bit unusual ha)  I think he looks quite snazzy!




    Also saw your edit about the GM- we didn’t have GM, but did make bouts for his dad and brother.

             My decorator went to a workshop late last year and when I went to see her about flowers, she said that boutineers were going outta style. I opted not to have them as they helped me save on cost. My fiance isn’t a big fan of em either so I said that was fine but a pocket square was a must if no boutineer. My girls will be carrying flowers and we aren’t doing anything for the mothers or fathers cuz they didn’t want anything either.

    @stephanie1989:  It’s completely up to you. If you want them to have the flower then get them, if not, save a few bucks. I frankly, think it would be too much with the pocket squares.
