Beautiful Buttonholes

by Bethany Day on January 18, 2013

Buttonhole for WeddingsThe tradition of wedding buttonholes originates from ancient Greece when bride grooms would pin a small arrangement of flowers, usually mixed with fragrant herbs, close to their heart in order to ward off any evil spirits which may wish to turn their hearts against the bride.
