Something for the Guys – Boutonnieres

When it comes to your wedding day every aspect should resemble the important things to you and your bride to be. What you guys like to do, what’s important to you, your own unique style should be shown off to truly make this day your own. And while the bride gets to express herself with the style of the white dress and what makes her bouquet, show off your style with a unique boutonniere.

Boutonnieres don’t just have to match the Bride’s bouquet anymore. More and more groom’s are showing off their own style in these unique additions to the lapels of their nicely cut suits. These classic details can be custom made, or handcrafted by you or your bride if you don’t trust yourself with the glue gun and scissors. Easy to make, take a look at a few of these homemade boutonnieres:

With a love for film this groom cut up some old camera film crafting it together in place for their boutonniere. Artistic yourself? Why not try to re-create one of these other details such as a mini violin, mini vinyl records, or with a love for literature a few flower heads crafted out of printed pages.
