What is the flower on a guy’s tux called?
A boutonnière (French: [butɔnjɛʁ]) or Buttonhole is a floral decoration, typically a single flower or bud, worn on the lapel of a tuxedo or suit jacket.
Who pays for the bride’s bouquet?
The groom’s family pays for the bride’s bouquet; the boutonnieres for the groomsmen, fathers, and grandfathers; and the corsages for the mothers and grandmothers. Traditionally, the groom’s family also pays for the rehearsal dinner and would thus be expected to pay for any flower arrangements they decide to have there.
Are silk flowers cheaper than real flowers for a wedding?
Fake Flowers Can Cost More Than Real Wedding Flowers Silk flowers are often more expensive than real flowers, particularly if the flowers in your bouquet are in season. Bouquets can be used as floral arrangements, or you can give your fresh floral decor as presents to your bridal party.
Why are bridal bouquets so expensive?
Simply put, flowers are expensive, and because a bouquet is comprised of a number of individual blooms, they can be quite costly. While your florist will help you pick the flowers that fit your style and theme, it’s important to be clear about your budget from the start.
