Wedding Boutonnieres

Wedding Boutonnieres

Usually, Wedding Boutonnieres are the main accessory in the big day.  The boutonniere for the groom should be made somewhat differently from the other wedding boutonnieres. It may be in a different color or may be a bit more elaborate.  This is to signify that he is the groom and make him feel special. Boutonnieres are worn by the males of the wedding party (groom, bestman, groomsmen, fathers of the couple), but we have seen boutonnières worn by close relatives and friends (both male and female).

If you don’t know what type of flowers to use, you can’t go wrong with roses.  They are very popular for wedding boutonnieres.  If garden roses are too much for your wedding budget, try going with spray roses or carnations, stephanotis, orchids or tulips.

In addition to choosing the flower/flowers to use in your wedding boutonniere, you need to consider also the color of the flower to complement the groom’s attire. A dark outfit will be best matched by a darker color boutonniere made from a rose, calla lily or tulip.  You need to also take into consideration the colors of the bridal bouquet’s flowers.
