~ Style Wednesdays ~ Boutonnieres for Men!

Every now and then we like to throw in something for the men.

There are no set rules but it is usually those in the wedding party and close family who wear boutonnieres as recognition of the couple honoring them. Some may choose to extend it to the ushers or ceremony readers.

The groom should wear it on his left lapel (closest to his heart!) and should have something different to the groomsmen as it is his big day! Traditionally you could wear a single bloom like a rose bud or carnation but with so much variety why not choose something different. Check out some of our favourites.  

 

 

The Knot have so many on their website, it was hard to choose but here are a few we liked.

  

  

From Martha Stewart Weddings we found some truly unique ones which have something special about them.

How about these beaded ones that can be can also double as a keepsake from the big day. 

  

Some DIY ideas from the Crepe paper flower to the Ribbon bloom. It is an inexpensive way to go. 

 

Pink Nerines in two styles (left) decorated with a button and pink ribbon or (right) some good luck from a Japanese Knotted boutonniere made from Mizuhiki cord.

 

 

Whatever your choice jut make sure it is reflecting YOUR personalties!

Definitely have fun with it!  Like this one...
