Wear a fabulous boutonniere that reflects your personal style
By Anne Chertoff
Our first roundup of creative boutonnieres was so popular, we couldn’t resist following up with a second batch. Here are a few more ideas to inspire you:
Planning on having pinwheels twirling during your ceremony send off? Coordinate your wedding details with accessories and wear, or have your groomsmen wear, this tiny pinwheel. Available in almost any color and size. $5, etsy shop bwatson28
If you want a flower boutonniere but also want a keepsake, Petal and Print creates handmade flowers out of linen, silk and tulle. It can also make coordinating pieces, such as a matching ring pillow. Groom bouts cost about $35 and groomsmen around $25-35. To view a gallery of its work and for more information, visit petalandprint.com.
Forget the floral design altogether and wear a pin on your lapel. This pin/bout can be customized with your names or initials, which are lightly carved into the birch bark. $6.50, etsy shop AprilHilerDesigns.
Or forget the boutonniere and add a splash of color to your suit jacket with a bright and patterned pocket square. You can find pocket squares, also known as handkerchiefs, in a wide range of colors and patterns at a variety of retailers. Shown: green large dot pocket square, $12, topman.com
