Which Side Does a Woman Wear a Buttonhole For a Wedding?
It’s hard to say whether or not the wife wears a buttonhole, because it doesn’t really matter if the answer is “both”just one.” I have been married for eleven years, and I never bothered to ask my wife what she wore under her wedding dress.
My marriage had no sense of ceremony or obligation. We had no vows or even rituals, but we knew we were supposed to be married for all eternity. We didn’t even think of it as a wedding.
When the time came to get married, we just got dressed up in some wedding clothes and headed out for the church. I remember there was a mass of people that took up most of the pews. Then the pastor came out and started the wedding service.
There was so much food and the service was so beautiful that the whole wedding was not even the way to describe it. We went back to our guest house and we just sat around. Everyone had their wedding gift and they all tried to cook something to eat. It was just so lovely.
A few weeks later, my wife showed me her new veil, the color of cherry wood and the material of her bride’s dress. When I asked why it wasn’t more of a surprise, she told me it was nice because we would be doing the same thing once we were married. I was totally confused by that idea. How could we both be doing the same thing at the same time?
I asked her, “Which side does a woman wear a buttonhole for a wedding?” She answered me without thinking, “It doesn’t matter.”
We are only married for eleven years, but that was enough time for us to figure out that we couldn’t do the same thing twice. This was not an attitude I was comfortable with. The more I looked at the wedding gown, the more I realized that I would not be wearing a buttonhole like my bride.
Our age difference can be a reason for a mismatch, and I did not want to be surprised on our wedding day. Of course, it would be embarrassing if my wife was wearing something I wore. If you want to see how your wife looks like after your wedding, go to a bridal show and see the dresses in person. Once you see the truth of your spouse’s dress, you’ll be able to see the real you.
I was lucky enough to see a bride who wore a buttonhole and thought it was cute. Her name was Sharon and she worked as a hair stylist in Hollywood. She was thirty-six and had just gotten engaged. She was very beautiful, but she did not like to wear clothes that were too revealing.
Her mother took her to a bridal salon and rented her a black dress and a big black dress with matching jewelry. Sharon said it was so cute that she wore the outfit to the church for her first dance with her husband. For this reason, I think the best way to find out what the wedding dress is like is to see the outfit yourself, before you walk down the aisle.
Maybe it is because I have grown up, but my wife does not want to wear little girl dresses and boyish tuxedos anymore. She always wants to wear something elegant. But she still shows off her classy wedding gowns sometimes when she is feeling daring.
In short, if you are wearing a small wedding dress, do not be afraid to show it off. No matter what style it is, it is just a big dress in her eyes.
