Boutonnieres should never be worn with military uniforms. One less for you to make or buy.

@AutumnElegance: Yes, that’s a big no-no when it comes to military uniforms.  He won’t need one ๐Ÿ™‚

My FH is getting married in his Firefighter Class A uniform (very militaryesque) …he won’t be wearing a boutonnier…I think it would look odd even if it was allowed…

no boutonnier with the uniforms, it would probably look a little out of place if it was there anyway.

@AutumnElegance: that’s a totally legitimate question.  Dh wore a police dress uniform and his groomsmen wore tuxes. It just seemed so odd that the groom would then be the one without anything

@AutumnElegance: We ended up skipping the boutonieres for the groomsmen and used a coloured pocket square instead.

My Fiance is ret army vet and will be wearing his uniform for the wedding.  He is having 5 groomsmen, 4 who will be in uniform, and 1 (my brother) not in the army, so he will be in a tux or suit, havent figured that out yet. Should my brother have a boutoneirre? Will it look completely off that he is only one in a tux and with a bouttonierre? I the just asked my Fiance this question tonight! He didn’t think it mattered either way! I’m glad I stumbled onto this post :).

I am a certified wedding coordinator and we were always taught in school a bout for a groom in uniform is a no-go!
