With temperatures rising, grooms are reaching for formalwear crafted from lighter fabrics in lighter summer-appropriate hues.

Enter gray. Black may be the classic go-to color for the groom, but gray, heather or charcoal, warm or cool, can look so sharp. Indeed, there’s something incredibly refreshing about a man in a gray suit. Do you agree?

Here at Lovella we never forget the men, which is why we were so excited to put this post together! As many of us get excited for the bouquets, corsages, centerpieces, etc., critical pieces of the floral puzzle include the boutonnieres. That flourish can take a man’s look to the next level.

For those with spring or summer weddings approaching, no matter your color scheme, we hope you’ll take away some inspiration from these softly-hued boutonnieres.
