Boutonnieres; they don’t get tossed to hopeful grooms-to-be, they aren’t preserved to have for all time, but they are to the groom, what the bouquet is to the bride. A boutonniere denotes a special position in the wedding party, so for the groom, the boutonniere should be as special as the bridal bouquet. Below are some of our favorite spring boutonnieres. From casual and khaki to elegant and black tie, the groom’s boutonniere should always make a statement.
This beautiful boutonniere is perfect for the spring. The bright red hypericum berries add lively color to the yellow cymbidum orchid, while the moss wrapped stem adds high point of vernal interest.
This sweet boutonniere is simply blue hydrangea, a temperamental, but lovely flower, but the precise brown ribbon wrapped around the stem is what takes this boutonniere to the level of elegance Harvey Designs’ clients have come to expect.
This groom chose to coordinate his boutonniere with the bride’s bouquet, selecting a white cymbidium orchid (above) instead of the green worn by the groomsmen. The rich fiddlehead fern and delicate copper wiring make these boutonnieres as elegant as the bridal party’s flowers.
This simple white dahlia with seeded eucalyptus makes a dramatic statement against the austere black of a traditional tux.
Real men can and do wear pink! The calla lily in this boutonniere is set off with bright pink snapdragon blooms and seeded eucalyptus. The sheer brown wrapping of the stem adds a more masculine touch to the boutonniere.
This single stem of purple freesia needs no accompaniment to steal the show. It is an added treat that it smells absolutely divine!
