The Boutonniere - Guys Matter Too!

In my experience - even the grooms that said they didn't care - really appreciated having a boutonniere that did not look like its inspiration came from a 1980's prom. 

I take pride in adding my special touch to all the wedding flowers - and having boutonnieres for the groom, best man, ushers, fathers and grandfathers that coordinate with the rest of the wedding is a fantastic way to bring a cohesive look to guys as well!

Another nice touch is to make the Groom's Boutonniere slightly different than the rest of the guys. I like them all to be coordinated, but the groom deserves to stand out! 

Here are a few examples:

  • Groom's Boutonniere - Scabiosa Pod, cream hypericum berry, pale pink astilbe
  • Groomsmen Boutonnieres - Scabiosa Pods, orange hypericum berry, red astilbe

  • Groom's Boutonniere - included After Dark Agonis for accent
  • Usher Boutonnieres - same Orchid, but Seeded Eucalyptus accent

If you look above you will notice I always make my grooms two boutonnieres - just in case Aunt Edna's hug was a little too enthusiastic and crushes the flowers. It is just another added touch to make sure your day goes perfect.

Another example of making the boutonnieres different, but in the same color palette.


The boutonniere may be small in size, but can be a big part of the overall theme of you wedding. Not only will your groom look and feel great, but you will be happy it coordinated with your bouquet as you gaze at your wedding pictures for years to come!
