Boutonniere Showcase – Say Goodbye to Red Roses and Baby’s Breath!

Boutonniere Showcase – Say Goodbye to Red Roses and Baby’s Breath!

December 06, 2011


It is for certain brides will always get stunning bouquets and beautiful dresses for their wedding. But it is important for men to wear matching and stunning boutonnieres as well! Traditionally, the boutonnieres are worn with formal attire for important occasions, while carnations and roses are always the typical choices. But don’t you just find they too big and the head is always bent over like it is bowing to your guests?!

In our experience, 95% of our grooms actually want a more masculine boutonniere and they want to pick out their flowers just like 100% of our brides do! Check out our boutonniere collection for more inspiration!  Make your groom proud of what he is wearing!

Black theme: unique black pepper boutonnieres with burlap. It’s very popular to make boutonnieres with blue berries, grapes, and black calla lilies.

Blue and silver theme: The thistle boutonniere is definitely better than any blue dyed flowers! Blue hydrangea blossom or blue delphinium works well too.

White and green theme: tuberoses and cymbidium boutonnieres are very unique. Men appreciate details such as the stitching around a Porsche shift knob. We love details also, see the attention to detail of this lily grass wrapped stem.

Other ideas: Mini roses, succulents, and dusty miller are also great flowers to use for boutonnieres.
