Throughout the wedding process men might find it a little difficult to show their true personality within the décor. Their one (and only) accessory for the night is their boutonniere. The options and possibilities are ENDLESS! When talking with your florist, try incorporating your fiancés favorite hobby, music, or movie to show how much you appreciate his character.
These were some of my personal favorites because they were outside the box!
If he likes his wine, this is a very simple way to show just that! Get a cork from his favorite bottle and mix it with your favorite accent flower & greenery. Simple yet different!
This is perfect for that Colorado ski bum! Many different colors could be added onto the skis to match your wedding pallet.
Musician? This is a classic way of “noting” his musical talents. Another idea might be to add the title of his favorite song onto one of the sheets in front of this flower.
This would be perfect for the fiancé who is always working on that model car in the garage or is known as the one person who can fix ANYTHING.
This is becoming more popular! One quick tip if this is what you would like to do for your groom, make sure to clip the barb down on the fly… If they put their jacket on their chair then lean back, you can not only puncture his nice shirt but it will be very difficult to get out as well.
If he is a master on the putting green this might be a way to show it! The tee can be the main focal point of the boutonniere or it can easily be hidden on the side.
If you enjoy the outdoors as much as he does, pine cones are a great addition to decor and as you can see here it adds texture to his boutonniere!
Sailing is an excellent hobby. Getting the knots to look just right may take a bit, but there are so many rope colors you can play with to see how it can match your decor!
This might be a bit extreme, but if your groom is a cartoon/action figure fanatic you might want to consider this!
This is so creative! Love every part about this airplane!
Adding a vintage piece can add tradition and meaning to the grooms boutonniere.
This cactus is a spin on the original flower boutonniere. It’s different and unique.
Has your groom found a passion for brewing? Possibly taken a tour around Fort Collins once or twice? This is an awesome representation of his extra curricular activities.
Star Wars! Another example of how to involve his favorite movie or hero.
Burlap has become very popular for that rustic look. If you are using wheat in your wedding this is a classic way of including it in his boutonniere as well!
Is he a hunter? This isn’t as bold as using only a shot gun shell for the boutonniere, it can be spiced up a bit.
This is one of my ABSOLUTE favorites! Autumn is the best time of year in my opinion and the brown with the fresh white of cotton just says perfection to me.
If you have been looking for a way to stray away from the traditional boutonniere I hope this got your creative juices flowing. Something about having an original piece for your groom to be connected to will tie him into the excitement of accessorizing. Any of these can be used through many different seasons, don’t get so stuck on what will look good or what people will think, remember to have some fun with it too!
