    I thought about it, but couldn’t do it. I had them.

    Here are a few pictures I like- one is with 2 orchids, the other with small ranunculus.



    I want elements of my wedding to be kind of classic, but if that isn’t important to you then you could definitley go without them.

    Sometimes parents of the bride/groom like to have the boutonniers too, so not sure if there would be disappointment there…? I don’t think it’s a big deal, but my aunt made a big deal out of having one at her daughter’s wedding…

    I’m not a fan either. I’m still fighting the fight between convincing people it’ll be fine without them and trying to find something I don’t detest that’s actually doable. If you have any luck I’d love to hear about it.

    My Fiance hates them, plus we decided no flowers at all in the wedding so we are doing pocket squares instead.

    I made some, but I am debating whether we will actually use them. I think it is fine to skip them.

    I wasn’t originally going to have them for the same reasons you stated.
    Fiance wanted them though, and our florist gave us a great deal on them – usually 10$ each, and she gave me 4 plus delivery (another 50$ value) for only an additional 36$. So, we’re having them.

    I’m skipping them, because neither my Fiance nor my dad really wants them.  One less thing to pay the florist for!

    You won’t regret not having something as inconsequential as bouts. I promise. Save the money! We didn’t have them, and nobody noticed or cared.

    We are doing pocket squares instead of bouts.  I think they look stylish and add a little pop of color.  I agree, I don’t like bouts either. 

    We are going for this sort of look:

    Originally we weren’t planning on it, but since we are having a black tie affair it seemed logical to use them as a distinguishing factor between the wedding party and the guests.

    I’ve been toying with the idea of not having them because I think they might be too formal for our outdoor wedding. I’m also planning on having the guys in more casual tan suits which might look odd in my opinion. Plus, Fiance doesn’t really want flowers.

    I think coloured pocket squares look awesome and are a great subsittute. We might also go with plain green hypercum berries (or “Man Berries” as we call them) just to set Fiance & the guys appart.

    BUT you totally don’t need them and people will still know who the wedding party is!

    You may want to have something for your ushers to wear just so they are easily recognizable among guests since they will not be dressed like the bridal party.

    Our wedding is formal, but we have decided against them. We will have pocket squares though. His will match me, and the guys will match the girls.

    I am undecided also. We are having a beach wedding so its not formal and I think it would be fine without one. I did order one, it was only $10 and I will decide once I see it on!
