boutonniere and suspenders - wtf?
I'm making a really great boutonniere for my fiance, but he will be taking off his jacket after the ceremony. Can I pin it to his suspenders or am I breaking some cardinal boutonniere rule? Do I just pin it to his shirt? That seems dumb. Does he just lose all boutonniere privileges by losing the jacket?
ps - I totally googled how to spell "boutonniere" and have copied and pasted it rather than typing it every time it appears in this email.
Yeah, no. When the jacket comes off the boutonniere is donesies. You can't just keep moving the damn thing around.
(As you may or may not know, I'm not a big fan of the boutonniere. But I do thank you for going out of your way not to call it a "bout.")
