Megan is here to give us some insight into the latest wedding trends and once again, her post is fabulous! I so love boutonnières, don’t you agree?
Today we are having a look at two of the finer details which go into planning a wedding and although they may seem small, they are equally important and a lot of effort goes into designing them – the boutonnière and the bouquet.
When it comes to your big day, one of the most important things is the bridal bouquet! While great attention to detail and effort gets put into designing and choosing the flowers and the features which go into your bouquet, one mustn’t forget the boutonnière too. The word boutonnière comes from the French word for buttonhole and is most commonly a single flower or a grouping of 2 or 3 flowers which are pinned to the lapel of the groom and the other men who are part of the ceremony but nowadays people are generally stepping away from the traditional forms of bouquets and boutonnières and incorporating more quirky and fun ways to design them.
There are no rules as to how they need to look, so there is no need to conform to anything. You can have plenty of fun coming up with different options for a bouquet and boutonnière, remember to create something which will reflect you and your groom’s personality and also capture the essence of the wedding decor and theme.
