When it comes to ordering wedding flowers most people think of two things – the bridal bouquet and the general décor of the wedding venue.
The groom also has a vested interest in the choice of flowers for the wedding day. Yes, the wedding day boutonniere is an important component of the grooms attire, and deserves a little of the same attention that is routinely paid to the bride’s bouquet.
So, what should the groom look for in his wedding day boutonniere? Here a few simple tips to help choose the perfect wedding day boutonniere.
The right flower
The heart of any good boutonniere is a single, perfect, bloom. Coordinate your choice with the flowers incorporated into the bridal bouquet.
Accents are important
While the flower is the heart of the boutonniere, traditionally, accents would typically be a silk wrap with a plain or adorned stick pin to hold the boutonniere in place. Or you may even choose like a twist of wire or a dried bramble. Whatever accent you choose, it should reflect your personality.
Coordinate with your team
Your groomsmen will also need boutonnieres. Coordinate the colours and blooms with all of the men in your wedding party. But the groom’s boutonniere should take pride of place, so keep the boutonnieres related, either by style or content.
