Yes, I am providing a boutonniere for my dad and it is normal at all the weddings I’ve been to for dad to have one.

We ordered one for my dad, as well as one for the father of the groom and the officiant, in addition to our groomsmen.

Thing is, my dad wasn’t with the groomsmen and DH’s dad before the ceremony, so he never got his pinned on and he forgot he was supposed to have one. So he didn’t end up wearing it. Oh, well.

We didn’t but TBH, I didn’t think about it. We didn’t have a Bridal Party and we didn’t have flowers for anyone else besides me and Darling Husband. Oh well. I think if you have a Bridal Party and they are all wearing them, then I would get your dad one too.

I don’t know what is normal, but we are on a seriously tight budget. We are only providing the following:

Bridal Bouquet

Maids of Honor Bouquet (x2)

Groom Bout

Best Men Bout (x2)

Father of the Bride Bout

I think my mother and his parents are a bit pissed that they weren’t getting anything, but we can’t afford to provide them for the whole family, and my dad is only getting one because he is walking me down the aisle (also, because I’m the biggest daddy’s girl in the whole world because he raised me by himself, but that’s not the excuse we are giving lol)
