    What is the consensus among this population on lapel flowers? Good accessory if done correctly and worn when appropriate? Egregious mistake?

    I want to try it but I have to have a loop sewn on beneath the lapel to hold the flower in position on some of my favorite jackets.

    Go for it!

    I am hesitant. My wife is a bridesmaid in a wedding coming up in the spring. I may try it then.

    Only for some roles at some weddings.

    Please expound on that. I do not claim to know how to wear one yet.

    I like to wear them by opportunity. As in, if I see a flower I like, I'll take it and put it in my lapel then go about my day. I don't ever really put one on before leaving the house.
