How to Properly Pin a Boutonniere

June 18, 2018

Knowing how to properly pin on a boutonniere is of vital importance when it comes to polishing off the look of the groom and groomsmen. Nothing dumbs a look down more than a floppy boutonniere, so you want that boutonniere secure and nicely displayed. Here's how to pin a boutonniere: 


1) The boutonniere should be placed on the top of the left lapel (right above the man's heart)

2) Start from the outer back of the lapel and stick the pin through the front

3) Push the pin through the stem of the boutonniere

4) Then push the pin through the lapel again so the point lies under the lapel


Here is a quick youtube video for a visual on how it's done.


Happy planning!
