Boutonnieres, to be honest, aren’t something I really think about when I think “wedding flowers.” Yes, they are integral part of the groom’s look, but much like his tux, it’s not something I really know a lot about!
I am pretty classic in my flower views…I like traditional. Here are three bouts I think fit that bill!
Hypericum berries! Classic, classic, classic. Did you know they come in different colors aside from greens and reds? You can get them in a wide variety of colors to match many color schemes. I prefer a bit more of a tailored look for the berries than the one above, but at least you know what they look like now.
Roses. I’m pretty sure these have been used as bouts for ages. And why not? They hold up well all day long, come in a wide variety of colors, and look pretty nice, too. (Source for all of the above photos)
Calla lilies. Yup, I hate ‘em for bouquets and centerpieces but I love them as boutonnieres. They look so chic, I think!
To be honest, I don’t really feel the need to discuss wrist corsages or pomander balls (to me, they’re like boutonnieres—a dime a dozen!). We are thisclose to selecting a florist, so stay tuned for the final installment of the Flower Power series—the big reveal on our florist, plus my thoughts and tips on selecting your floral vendor!
