Prominent in all of the wedding photos, the bride’s and bridesmaids’ floral bouquets are carefully selected to complement the gowns, reflect the bride’s favorite flowers, and even to comply with tradition, but what about the boutonnieres? Boutonnieres, floral decorations worn by men on the left side of a tuxedo’s or suit’s lapel above the heart, are also quite noticeable in pictures, yet there really isn’t much thought given to the groom’s and groomsmen’s boutonnieres. Although the flower in a boutonniere usually matches a flower from the bride’s bouquet, the groom and groomsmen aren’t relegated to wearing just a simple rose or carnation with a spray of baby’s breath any more. Brides are trendier in their floral selections and there are florists and artists who are crafting boutonnieres with non-traditional flowers, artificial flowers, and unusual details that are taking boutonnieres to new heights.
Since boutonnieres are now worn only at special occasions like weddings, why not make them look especially nice? Go beyond the traditional boutonniere with a big, bold flower, a boutonniere fashioned to look like a flower, or one embellished with decorative accents, for a look that’s uniquely different.
