We just ordered the groomsmen tuxedos. Fiance and I are differing on the silk pocket squares. I like the look of the squares yet it is a “additional fature” to the collection. Fiance says folks will notice the pocket square. Obviously the men will wear a boutonnière, so nothing will be missing.
The question: Are pocket squares worth the hype?

I think pocket squares are so 1990. Just my opinion.

I like the way they look but no way do I think they are required or necessary.

I don’t think they are necessary.

I don’t think they’re necesary and I think having a pocket square and a buutonniere might be too much (I might be wrong) though.
By The Way: I loved the poll options =P

@MapleMoose: yes I agree. I like them because I think they just complete the look. But no they are not necessary.
Our guys had a pockets square and a boutennier and I think it looked very classic.

Hahaha your poll options cracked me up.
I’m not a fan of the pocket squares at all. The only reason I see for the pocket squares is if the guys aren’t wearing bouts.

I don’t think pocket squares are necessary, but we opted to get them for our gm. I liked the added color.

Yeah, I agree with regberadaisy that they seem kind of dated to me. Totally not necessary, IMO.

Nope, sorry, you can’t get get married unless all the guys are wearing pocket squares. It’s in the legal section of the ceremony. “I ______ do solemnly declare that I know of no lawful impediment or absence of pocket square determining that I may not marry ______.” 😉
Aesthetically I prefer having just one or the other, although it does depend on the pocket square. My dad wore a boutonniere and pocket square at my wedding, and because the square was muted greens and blues instead of stark white or a bright colour, it didn’t look too busy at all. But in general I prefer boutonnieres on their own.

I don’t really like the look of pocket squares.. I think they look kind of tacky, but that might just be because they remind me of prom night 😀

@Coffee Cup: I’m thinking the same thing. I think both a bout and a pocket sqaure could be a bit too much. I think the bouts can bring extra color to the tuxs.
@TinyTina: I’m glad you enjoyed the poll options

I like them, but they’re certainly not necessary. I let Darling Husband and his brother (best man) decide what to do. They bought the pocket squares the day before the wedding, after having second thoughts about not doing them. 😛 This picture might help you decide, since one of the groomsmen below’s pocket square wouldn’t stay sticking out of his pocket. Compare his look to everyone else’s! 😛

Pocket squares certainly aren’t necessary.
With that being said, my husband was adamant about not having any boutineers therefore, him and the groomsmen used the handkerchiefs that came with their ties.

@pengoala: Wow I love the color combo!
And no pocket squares aren’t necessary.
