Tiny Boutonnieres Big on Style
Bridesmaids have their bouquets, and groomsmen have their boutonnieres. Make a gorgeous statement with these fun floral boutonniere designs. Take note, because you can make them yourself (or you can just take these photos to your florist). We have plenty of DIY boutonniere ideas to inspire your wedding plans. From the clever to the uber-elegant, there’s certainly a style here for every personality—even the golfing grooms and the outdoorsiset of guys.
Gold for the Guys
Add a pop of gold to the groom’s boutonniere, and it will brighten up any tux. This boutonniere keeps things simple and streamlined, focusing on only two elements. Nothing fussy here. The design hinges on two coordinating autumnal colors, a fiery gold and a subdued red, instead of adding extraneous greenery.
This boutonniere makes a statement with varying shades of green. It will complement any bridal palette, and it has enough structural interest to elevate a simple ensemble. Add springs of rosemary for an organically incorporated natural fragrance that won’t overwhelm.
This boutonniere pairs blues with touches of subdued greens and finishes the design with a subtle ribbon tie. Choose a show-stopping central blue bud and surround it with complementary shades, such as the bright blue of bluebells, to create a boutonniere with depth.
White flowers are always a favorite for bridal bouquets—not to mention bridal gowns. This boutonniere offers subtle coordination by echoing the shades of the bride’s gown and flowers. Pops of green frame the two central blooms. This style will look fantastic in photos, guaranteed.
This boutonniere uses structural, budded plants to great effect, pairing burgundy and lime hues for jaunty contrast. Two feathers incorporated at the back of the boutonniere ground the design. Choose two differently patterned feathers for a natural, outdoorsy vibe.
Simple and Streamlined
This combination is an easy way to incorporate some pink into an elegantly simple, two-tone boutonniere. To coordinate with the pinks of the bridal party’s ensembles, add peachy berries to a green and white palette, and keep the architecture simple. Including just a few elements lets the colors shine and ensures that the structure remains streamlined.
Design to a Tee
For the groom who loves to golf, add two tees tied with ribbon to a simple green boutonniere. It’s a clever way to personalize the design, and he’ll love it. (It’s also great that those little white pegs won’t clash with your carefully chosen wedding colors.)
A Vintage Affair
Save a cork from a memorable bottle of wine you shared with your groom, and have your florist incorporate it as the base of his boutonniere. A few sprigs of green leaves (or eucalyptus, if you're going for a more cool-toned palete) and a bright bloom, such as a peony or miniature rose, give this design just the right impact, an ideal balance of whimsy and structure.
A contemporary favorite, adding a gorgeous succulent bloom to the groomsmen’s boutonnieres keeps the style earthy and fresh, clean-lined and unique. This is a versatile design that can be incorporated anytime year round. Add lots of leafy sprigs to balance the textures and the scale of the succulent focal point.
One curved scarlet calla lily balances the green and white of this boutonniere, a perfect design for a winter wedding. Because calla lilies are such simple forms, adding sprigs of various textures and colors bring much-needed liveliness to this design and keep it from feeling too buttoned-up.
