I was wondering if someone could help me with the following.
My weddng is very small, max 25 people. My fiancé will wear a boutonnière. My brother is the one who will walk me down the aisle and act as a witness. The aisle is very short considering the wedding is taking place in a home but I still insisted on having an aisle runner. Always wanted one. Anyways, I don’t have flowers girls, brides maid and all the rest. My brother in law will be the witness for my fiancé.
Now, I really want my brother to have a boutonnière especially since he’s walking me down the so called aisle and he will be the only member of my family present.
Do I give my brother in law a boutonnière also since he’s acting as the witness for my fiancé. I think he’s going to feel really left out if he doesn’t get one. But I don’t know what to do. What do you think? What would you do?
Looking forward to reading your responses.

I would give them all boutonnieres (I had given them to all immediate family)

Basically you have 3 Men to deal with … and if it was a traditional set up in regards to roles…
Groom – Best Man – and Father of the Bride… these guys would all wear Bouts… so ya I think it only makes sense to do it
Besides, it will make them all special IMO… afterall they all “your go-to guys” on your Big Day… right?
Hope this helps,

I would definately give them all boutonnieres. Plus it will look nice for pictures.

I’d definitely give him one for sure.
With a wedding of that size, I would assume everyone is very close to, so I might consider giving everyone a bout/corsage. (just an idea)

Yes, give all 3 men boutonnieres.

Sweet. Thank you so much to all of you for your imput. I guess its so true when they say rely on your intuition. My first thought was to give the Brother in law a boutonnière. So, I’ll stick with that. I also thought of giving other members of the family one but then I decided not to. If I do that three quaters of the people there will be wearing a boutonnière lol and I just don’t feel like having that even though I know boutonnières are not expensive.
What kind of boutonnière’s did your fiancé have and your grooms men, etc.
I’m thinking of cala lili for the groom but I don’t know about my bro and bro in law. There will be cala lili garlands hanging in the room. i’m wondering if having my fiancé wearing a cala lili is too much.
I will want hydrangeas or peonnies for my bouquet.

Yes, definitely. It’ll look nice and I feel like you should do it anyway just to be courteous.

Anyone participating in the wedding should get one, in my opinion. I think your brother in law would really appreciate having one 🙂
Any flower would go nicely.

I consider a witness part of the wedding party, so I’d give them all boutonnieres. Maybe your groom should have a bout with peonies to match your bouquet, then the others could have calla lily bouts.
