    We are doing both. I think it looks very nice with both of them!

    We are doing both, and our pocket square isn’t the same color as the vests (to pick up both our colors).

    We are doing just pocket squares to save some money. The best man’s pocket square matches the color of the maid of honors dress, and all the other guys have pocket squares that match the color or my bridesmaids. But i do like both.

    I think Option No. 3 (both) is a very classy look!

    I think men are more comfortable with pocket squares than boutonniers. And what do you do with the boutonnieres afterwards?

    @NAvery:  We’re doing pocket squares only for the groom and groomsmen, and then my Man of Honor will be wearing a boutonniere that will somewhat match the bridesmaid bouquets (though he might wear both, we haven’t decided yet).  My fiance didn’t want a boutonniere at all, so we decided that none of his groomsmen should have them either if he wasn’t wearing one.  We also thought it might help my Man of Honor stand out a little more and be more obviously part of the bridal party if he wore one.


    I saw that you are planning to do both, though, and I think both in the picture you posted looks nice and not too busy at all.
