I am confused.
My fiance and the grooms party are each going to be wearing cutaway tuxedo.
I am not sure if they should wear a pocket square with a boutoniere or not. I think wearing both might be too much, but then again, maybe not.
Please tell me what you think.

I have no idea can you find pics of someone wearing both?

We also decided both would be too much and my FI finds boutonieres to be annoying (flower too close to his face) so we bought fun pocket squares for all of the guys to add to their tuxedos.

My metrosexual fiance, who knows more about men’s fashion than I do, is uncertain but thinks you can do both. At the one formal wedding I’ve attended recently, the groom wore only a pocket square and his groomsmen wore neither bout nor pocket square.

Thank you slicey19 and redherring.
I am sorry, but I don’t have pictures of both.
And unfortunately or fortunately, depending on how you look at it, my fiance doesn’t care either way. He is leaving it up to me.

We are using the same tuxes and going with both.

I’ve read that you usually wear one or the other, not both together…it looks really busy. There was a link on a Martha Stewart thread at one point to “pocket bouts”…kind of an interesting, unique idea if you want to do something different:
It’s said that a pocket square is great for a suit or morning jacket (similar to what your wedding party will wear). I couldn’t find a good picture of a tie/bout/pocket square combo like what your guys might wear, only with a bowtie. I think the bout only or pocket square only looks clean.

I think when it is done like Sadie posted with a small bout it is most capable of putting them together. I personally see the pocket squares as a nice way to be different for the groom who hates flowers or has allergies.

I personally like the pocket square best, I just think it looks so classic and clean. That, and my FI hated the idea of wearing flowers, so pocket squares it is!
