Trends of 2008 – Groom’s Boutonniere

Photos: Edyta Szyszlo Photography

Did you know that the word ’boutonniere’ comes from the word ‘button’ in French? Little tid bit for ya! Ode to the bout…I’m not sure if trends have really come on gone with boutonnieres (well ok, baby’s breath is pretty scarce these days), however, the past couple years these mini bouquets have gotten pretty creative! Choose the boutonniere in the same fashion as you would the bouquet, but allow your groom to be involved in the process. Think about your wedding theme, colors, decor, color of his tux or suit and functionality. Boutonnieres tend to take more of a beating throughout the wedding day so be sure to consult with your florist when picking a style. Don’t forget the bout is worn on the left jacket lapel. Also, I highly recommend having your florist show you how to put one on in case there’s a time crunch on the wedding day. Two florists worth checking out for unique designs: Bay Area – Passiflora Designs & Chicago – Hello Darling. Check out more creative bouts!
