    Go for it! It will still look good.

    Nope... find a way for them to have a boutonniere. It looks better.

    could they have a little handkerchief thingy in their pocket? (sorry I dont know what thats called.) I think that dresses up their tuxes quite a bit.

    I think it’s fine – I’m not sure how much other stuff you have that it would look strange to add another flower in though?

    We were going to just do one for Fiance, but the bout and ties are really the only thing unifying the guys since none of them could get their $&#@ together to wear the black suits they told me they all had but don’t.

    Fiance matches my bouquet, the groomsmen match the colors of the bridesmaid’s and my dad’s is just white and matches my mom’s pin corsage.

    I think pocket squares are sexy. Flowers are not man-like at all.

    Mine did not wear bouts, and they looked hottt!   I personally do not like bouttonierres, and we had a casual beach theme wedding so for us it was not necessary.  I think pocket squares are better.  : )

    @Alli259: We aren’t having them either. Mr. Tattoo said right when we first started to plan, “NO FLOWERS ON ME OR MY FRIENDS! That shit is for women!” lol I can’t control what he wants to wear. He’s not telling me what dress to get or what dresses the bridesmaids should wear.

    Our groomsmen and ushers aren’t doing bouts. They’ll have pocket squares instead. My Fiance and my dad (FI’s dad passed away) are the only ones wearing bouts. Our main reason for doing this is I don’t want to spend the extra money on flowers for 8 guys who really don’t care.

    Our guys didn’t wear bouts. I couldn’t find any I liked and it was just really frustrating me so I said eff it, lol. none! It was definitely one of my executive decisions, but I don’t think it looked bad whatsoever. Pocket squares would be awesome! I say go for it. Bouts are dead 🙂

    My Fiance made it VERY clear that he and his men wouldn’t be wearing anything else besides handkerchiefs.

    It looks great though!!

    I am just doing the handkerchiefs with the groomsmen and just my Fiance will be wearing a flower, but maybe not even him. I don’t think it is necessary at all! And they will probably appreciate that you aren’t dressing them up like dolls with flowers.
