Since I am on the topic of Boutonnieres, I thought I would pull together a collection of cute bouts from across the web. I spend alot of hours making these little guys during the wedding season! I have been trained that the best flowers to suggest are the rose (both traditional and spray), calla lilies and Orchids. They work, last the distance and come in a variety of colours…but I am so bored of them!!
So, I am looking for a little inspiration here. I have opted for more hardy plant choices as the guys are generally not as gentle as us girls.
I tend to enjoy a simpler bout, and these fall inspired ones are just delightful…
Two of my fav things to go in a guys bout is a succulent and/or a craspedia flower. I find them fun, modern and masculine!
I do love the idea of a herb in a boutonneire also, can you imagine the scent as he runs around hugging his guests?
and finally a flower. This is adorable but just beware the Dahlia is a fragile choice!
the search continues……
