How to pin on a Boutonniere? 如何戴上男仕襟花?




從前,新郎的晚禮服翻領有一個小孔,是用來把襟花是插入,後來翻領沒有了小孔,現改為用大頭針針把襟花扣上。

戴上男仕襟花的方法很簡單,先定好襟花的方向和在翻領上的位置。然後,只須把大頭針由翻領後方插入,可以垂直或小鈄角把針推向前,針尖穿入布料剛好到花頭的下方。這樣,襟花就被固定在翻領上。如果覺得仍不夠穩固,或者襟花比較重身,可以再加大頭針,以同樣的方法在下方或另一個角度加上。

注意不要推得太前把大頭針露出來,一不小心把自己弄傷。只要把襟花重心的部份固定好就,就不會移位,成功戴好了!

坊間有些襟花座的物體,國產的設計,方便不懂以大頭針扣上的人。原理是將襟花固定在膠架上,後方是類似「徽章」的扣針。就這樣,襟花就掛在翻領上。

這樣子的襟花難好看。膠的部份露出來,一點兒沒有美感,掛出來的襟花不夠貼向翻領,有點搖搖晃晃。很多時候脆弱的膠的「啪」一聲斷了,就再沒有作用了,反而四處需要找大頭針固定了。

免以上的尷尬情況出現,就要開始用學用大頭針了!不單只簡單易學,它是漂亮地把襟花的形態展現出來。有些是用使磁石扣把花貼上的。但磁力的結果不定,有時受衣料和襟花的重量影響,不夠牢固,或是太強的磁力把衣料弄出一個印,要小心自行判斷是否適合。

希望大家以後學識戴上襟花!不用以下這些膠道具幫手啦!

In the past days, the stem of a boutonniere flowers was inserted through an actual "buttonhole" in a man's left lapel. Today, we do not have a hole in the lapel, so the boutonniere need to be pinned.

You have to place the boutonniere on the left lapel, then using the a pearl pin, either vertically or at a slight angle, pushing it through the fabric just beneath the head of the flower. You can further secure it with another pin but slightly at different angle or beneath.

Don't stick out the pin too much or you hurt your finger! The trick is the pin should hold the right breath the flower head, or the heaviest part of your corsage.

Some people maybe not comfortable with the pearl pin. They use a popular made in china design, putting a boutonniere in a "badge" kind of holder.

Of course, it looks very ugly to me. And, it usually fails to do the job. The green plastic things is so visible that the boutonniere is actually hanging there, not stick close on the lapel. When the groom is moving so much, the boutonniere can't stay on the positions. Or, the plastic is so crispy. When it breaks, you have no way to put it on or using the original pin will help.

A simple pin is easy and secure enough for your whole wedding day, with no embarrassment. Although, some people will use the magnetism stick onto the lapel. Again, the magnetism is unpredictable. You risk losing the boutonniere if it is slip over, or the magnets leave a mark on the lapel if the magnetism is very strong.

From now on, don't use the green plastic thing!Learn to do with the pin!
