Of all the questions I as a florist gets asked one pops up more than most, "which side should I wear my buttonhole or corsage on, and does it face up or down ?", Ummmmm !!, not an exact science as regional variations sometimes come to the fore on this one, but as a general rule and this handy rhyme may help...Men should be ' LEFT ' to pay,
and Ladies are always ' RIGHT '
So there you have it men on the left, and ladies on the right, now here's the rub............personal preference often takes over and throws my rhyme a curve ball, ladies sometimes prefer to attatch their flower on their left shoulder(sometimes because they are right handed and its easier to pin in, or just because the car seat belt wont crush it if your the driver of the car!!, this seatbelt rule works for the Gent too.), as for which way up it should face, dont get me started on that one!!! Soooooooooo try not to get caught up in the detail, and enjoy the day.
