Corsage, Boutonniere and Buttonholes – What’s in a Name?
Simply put – if it’s worn by a women it’s a corsage, if it’s worn by a man it’s a boutonniere or buttonhole. Corsage, buttonholes and boutonniere are fundamentally the same thing. Traditionally a small bouquet, sometimes just a single flower, worn on a dress or suit. Just like shirts or blouses the term used is dictated by the gender of the wearer.
