We are doing bouts for the officiant, groom, best man, and dads (we have no grandpas).  I personally like the little touch, and they coordinate with the bouquets.  I think ours are about $15 a bout, so it’s not too much of an extra expense for us.  I think they’ll look nice in pics.

We are having them! officiant, groom, ring bearer, groomsmen, dads, grandpas… 

I think they create a formal appearance.

We had them but it came with the flower package we purchased. I would have been fine with the colored hankies that came with the tux.

i never thought to NOT have them! didn’t think they were a thing of the past at all.

if they’re a thing of the past, so are bouquets! 🙂

We’re having them. It’s one of my favourite wedding-y things. My h2b is so excited about wearing his Superman DC Justice League bout.

There still popular where I’m at. I had them, and they added some color to their tuxes.

The groom, the fathers, the best man and my sister’s partner will all be wearing one. Neither of us have any grandfathers still around.

We’re also doing them for our G, GM and some male family members.  I never thought about the Officiant! I’ll have to make one for him too.

Here are the ones I crafted for the Groom and his GM’s.  The family ones are more simple, just a cream blossom.
