We had them for wedding party, ushers, mc and dad’s. My husbands got so squashed from hugging people.

We bought bouts, but my hubby left them in his car while he was getting ready, and then my dad drove him over to the venue, and they both completely forgot about the bouts. I don’t think anyone noticed or cared.

I think most people won’t notice or care. But we did them and they made all our guys just look that much smarter, so if it’s not going to break the budget, I think they do add something special.

Its really down to personal choice…. if you don’t like them, don’t have them.

Having said that though, I’ve never been to a wedding here (Uk) which didn’t have them!  We had corsages for mums and buttonholes for Best man, readers and immediate family to both identify the ‘bridal party’ and tie everything together as we didn’t have everyone in matching outfits.  I do think it looks lovely in the photos, and because we used quality silk flowers people have a keepsake if they want it

We didn’t have a bridal party, but my husband did wear one for our wedding.

He was best man at his friend’s wedding and all the groomsment were given pocket squares instead of bouts. However, their attire, per the bride and groom’s desire, was white shirts, black slacks, and black vests. No jacket = no place to put a pocket square LOL. Yes, they looked like waiters. Sorry if that’s mean but it did not look very polished IMO.

I didn’t do them. We did pocket squares. I think they look classier.
