Attention, class! Let’s start the day off with a history lesson. Whether it’s a Hawaiian lei, a Greek Orthodox flower crown, or classic boutonnieres, men throughout the world sport flowers on their wedding day to promote fertility and chivalry, and to ward off evil spirits. So where did this custom come from? In the Middle Ages, a knight entering battle would often bear a token from his lady close to his heart. Today, contemporary grooms have adapted the age-old tradition and don a flower from the bride’s bouquet on the left lapel of their suit. From an elegant and simple rosebud to a sweet and rustic succulent, there are a variety of options for your very own knight in shining armor!
