Boutonnieres the Bros Will Love

It wasn’t until recently that I realized the importance of the “man flower” aka the boutonniere. There are certain things you don’t really notice at a wedding until you are planning your own and boutonnieres and corsages was definitely one of them for me. When my florist asked me how many boutonnieres I needed, I realized I hadn’t even thought about boutonnieres yet, so I immediately started checking out the options.  While most consist of some sort of flowers, there are actually a ton of non-traditional boutonnieres available these days, including seasonal-themed and ones made with wine corks, bottle caps, shells and more.  Here’s a little inspiration to get you started if you’re in the boutonniere selection phase like me!
