Wear them however you want!!!! They’ll look great!

No one on the internet (or in real life) can tell you what to do!!

I think it will be fine.  google image boutinierre no jacket and some pictures come up. I think it looks good. Our ushers will probably do this.  We didn’t want to make them rent or buy a tux just to be an usher and they don’t own suits.  They will look good enough with a shirt and tie and the boutineer will distinguish them from other guests

@ebarnes0:  errrr I’ve never heard of that.  My husband didn’t want to wear his jacket either, so we pinned the bout on his vest.  I think it looked fine?

Totally fine! We are doing the same. My fiance will be the only one wearing a vest, the groomsmen will just have shirts and suspenders. We’re getting married May 31st in the desert so no jackets for anyone! 🙂

It’s but the norm, but if you think it looks good, wear it.  It is not without precedent, either, to pin a flower on a shirt.

“Boutonnière” means “buttonhole,” and I personally think pinning a flower to a shirt is a little ridiculous. But let him do what he wants. It’s not worth fighting over.

My husband & his groomsmen wore them on their vests (they didn’t wear jackets).
