Boutonnieres for Every Groom’s Style

Posted by Caitlin on May 09, 2013

Let’s face it, the bridal bouquet will get more attention than any other floral arrangement, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t show your groom’s lapel a little love with a statement-making boutonniere. A boutonniere must last for hours, meaning throughout the ceremony, photographs, dinner and dancing.  Depending on the sturdiness of the flower, it’s likely that one boutonniere just isn’t enough. So, be prepared and have two or more as backup. To help suit your wedding style, here are a few of our favorites:

Rustic – If you’re a sucker for succulents like we are, then choose this natural yet simple boutonniere filled with yellow billy balls and wrapped with twine.

Megan & Brian

November 10

Nashville, Tennessee

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

We loved the classic/historic feel of the Chapel. We knew our pictures would look timeless.

What three (3) details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. Photographs

2. Wedding attire for the entire wedding party

3. Floral arrangements (specifically the pew balls in the Chapel)

Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

Our photographer suggested a “first look” moment. We really cherished our time together before the ceremony. It made the wedding day feel more intimate.

Beth & Hansel

September 29

Franklin, Tennessee

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

I loved the Southern, historical feel of Carnton Plantation. The house is beautifully maintained and the grounds are gorgeous. I wanted my guests to have a true feel of Franklin, Tennessee.

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

The beaded sash added to my dress, the wicker-willow ball lighting, and the pops of green from the shutters, rocking chairs, and benches of the mansion.

If you could offer one piece of advice for other couples planning their wedding, what would it be?

While it may be stressful, enjoy this special time together. Be thankful for the help of your families!

Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

Our “first look” was incredibly special and a moment when time stopped and it was truly just the two of us. I will never forget the look on Hansel’s face when turned and saw me at the end of the porch and came running to me!

Of course, we know it’s hard for brides to find the perfect dress, and it’s not too hard for grooms to pick the perfect suit. One detail that should be hard for them to decide, though, is whether to wear a bow tie or neck tie. If your groom is preppy, he should pick a bow tie, but if your groom is traditional, he should pick a neck tie. Whatever your groom’s style may be, he’s bound to look handsome on your wedding day!

Seasonal fall flowers include: black-eyed susans, dahlias, chrysanthemums, lilies, roses, orchids and gerberas. Of course, you’re thinking of using reds, burnt oranges and yellows in your bouquet, but don’t feel restricted to these colors.
