So we’ve done a lot of talking here about bridal bouquets, altar arrangements, centerpieces. But what about the groom? Shouldn’t he have a bit of flare as well? Today’s post is dedicated to the boutonniere, or button hole. It’s worn on the left side of the groom’s lapel (over his heart) and can also be attached to a vest or suspenders in the case of a more casual wedding. Here are some of my favorites!

I love that this boutonniere makes me think of fall. The red berries combined with the tan sea oats are a great rustic combination.

Another fall boutonniere, this one has pinecone elements.

I love these sweet little citrus colored ranunculus. Note that while the flowers are the same, the colors are mismatched. Boutonnieres don’t have to all be the same. As long as there is a unifying element, like the same flower type, or the same ribbon color, boutonnieres can vary just like bridesmaid bouquets!

Boutonnieres can have non-floral elements as well. Take a look at this spotted feather accent.

I love the prickly texture of the thistle next to the soft elegance of the peach rose. The contrast in color and texture makes for a perfect boutonniere.

Well, I love a lot of things about this boutonniere. The plum color is so rich, but I also like the texture (are you noticing a texture theme here?) of the soft flower with the prickly herbs, and bumpy berries. Get creative! You don’t have to use only flowers!
