Boutonnieres for Grooms & Groomsmen
The ladies aren’t the only ones who get great looking blooms
You know often all eyes are on the bride, (guests and bridal party members are checking out her gown, her veil, her bouquet, her accessories) but she’s not the only one in those bridal party pictures. Nor is she the only one up at the altar. For a cohesive-looking group, make sure your beau (and his besties) don flowers as stunning as all the other blooms at the wedding. Here are some great examples that are distinct, contemporary and very handsome.
One Bold Bloom
With a flower this striking there’s no need for extra flora or fauna to crowd it. This single, vibrant purple panda orchid makes a statement all on its own. For an even more dramatic effect, the bride could carry a large bouquet made solely of the same flowers, creating a focal point that pops against a light bridal gown.

While stephanotis is a classic choice for a bridal bouquet, pairing it with seasonal greenery makes it winter-appropriate, and a bit more masculine. To keep the bout from looking too feminine, choose a wrap that makes a gender-neutral statement.

Herbs Keep it Fresh
The craspedia is flanked by oregano—so he will smell as handsome as he looks. Between the striking shape of the round craspedia and its vivid hue, the herbs that flank it soften the bout, giving it the perfect balance of wedding-worthy and not too serious.

Go Further with Food
To keep this boutonnière unique while still in style and in season, this autumnal creation has caboose pod, ranunculus, orange pepper, rosemary thyme and lavender. Similar to farm to table, but more like food to shoulder.
