When thinking about men’s wedding day attire try thinking beyond the basics and opt for a lapel pin. Lapel pins don’t serve a purpose like cufflinks but they do serve quite the look. They offer a fresh way to accessorize the groom or groomsmen’s suits with a little panache. While some socks or ties may come across as a little too bold or quirky for the formality of the day, a lapel pin is just right for some ceremonial flair.
How does one wear a lapel pin and can you wear them with a boutonniere? It’s a great question and as always, our answer is for you and your wedding party to do what feels right for the wedding day. Traditionally, lapel pins are to be worn on the left lapel cenetered on the buttonhole. Most commonly, men will choose to wear a lapel pin or a boutonniere but not both. If you are having a hard time deciding consider the longevity of a lapel pin. It’s a keepsake, you can wear it again and again and you get more bang for your buck than flowers! Bottom line, you are running the show so it’s just a matter of personal preference.
