Often times the Gents don’t get a whole lot of input when it comes to the flower they will sport on their wedding day… probably because they don’t know what else the Bride is planning with regard to flowers and they think whatever she picks will be fine. A Groom will often worry more about food and music, than flowers and linens – so Bride – you aren’t alone if your Groom makes you feel like he just doesn’t have an opinion about his boutonniere – just let it go.
For Brides looking for something a bit modern, cool, and fresh – we picked your man some of our favorite boutonniere (bout) looks, and some he just might love to have an opinion about. We separated them into categories that will go with your wedding concept… so choose wisely!
THE CLASSIC GROOM
Renuncula & mini rose boutonniere with berries and a classic stripe ribbon.
Spray rose and stephanotis accented with greenery.
Gardenia bloom with accents of green.
Anenomes are a favorite of ours for boutonnieres and bridal bouquets.
THE MODERN GROOM
Mokara orchids with fiddlehead also known as monkey’s tail.
Phaleonopsis orchid with fiddlehead or monkey’s tail and a wheat tuft.
Bamboo shoots are a great way to stay contemporary on your wedding day. Men like them because there aren’t any flowers.
THE RUSTIC & VINTAGE GROOM
Southern Living - Katie Stoops
Burlap made the rustic and vintage theme go round and round this year in the world of weddings.
Succelent boutonnieres are ever so popular. Grooms like wearing them too because they are “manly”.
Billy balls, berries & herbs – embellished with a quilted ribbon – love for a vintage wedding!
Lavender sprigs are perfect for a outdoor rustic or vintage celebration – this look is dressed up with a classic stripe ribbon – it makes it feel more formal.
THE ANTI-FLOWER GROOM
Scrabble is always a family favorite – if you and your Groom are gamers – this look is a match for your wedding day.
How about music lovers? Does your husband-to-be serenade you? He will love it if you surprise him with a little piece of music on your wedding day.
What I love about this look is it can fit any category of wedding – classic, modern, rustic or vintage – this look is clean and Grooms love it because it doesn’t feel frilly!
If you are doing the beach – might as well try something a little beachy! Who doesn’t love a sand dollar?
This look is even more modern and chic – starfish with bear grass!
Berries are another great way to not incorporate floral elements – but keep in clean. This look also can work for any style of wedding.
Nothing says man like a steam engine – metal parts and metal scrap are perfect for almost any manly Groom. If you don’t think he will go for the rest you can always make adjustments – especially if you are purchasing homemade products from Etsy.com!
