Bold Bouts: Harvey Designs, Event and Floral Design, Savannah Georgia

It is only expected for the bride to be the crowning glory of her wedding day, but, as it is a wedding, there is a second person who’s presence is nearly as important as the bride’s; that, of course, would be the groom. If the bride has selected a bold palette for her bouquet, it is almost assured that the groom will wear an eye-catching coordinating boutonniere. Besides identifying him as a valuable member of the wedding party, a bold boutonniere is striking against a suit lapel.

Nothing is more perfect for a Southern Savannah wedding than seersucker. Don’t let the stripes distract you though. When considering your boutonniere color, treat seersucker as you would a black tux: anything goes! This vibrant boutonniere of green mini cymbidium orchids and a fuchsia ranunculus looks dashing and is a perfect demonstration of that philosophy.

Graceful phalaenopsis orchids need no accompaniment to enhance their attractiveness as a boutonniere. Their ample size on these two half-sized groomsmen adds a sweetness to the sophistication of the flower.

The use of rosemary gives these deep sunset orange ranunculus a wild garden feel, but the bold color ensures the flower still steals the show.
