Boutonnieres Ideas: For the Groom Who's a Kid at Heart


If your groom is a fun-loving kid at heart, then skip the roses and ranunculuses and have him wear a boutonniere that's full of his playful personality. We love these whimsical boutonnieres inspired by his favorite comic books, superheroes, and cartoon characters from childhood.

Batman (above): A Caped Crusader action figure (the Legos version) looks adorable paired with a few sprigs of greenery and pinned to his lapel.

Star Wars & Yoda: Pay homage to his favorite movie of all time with a Star Wars-themed buttonhole.

Paper Flower Made from Comic Book Pages: If your groom loved comic books as a kid (or maybe he still does!), create a paper flower from the pages of one of his favorites for him to wear.

Character Pez Dispensers: This clever couple removed the character heads from several Pez candy dispensers and affixed them to a piece of ribbon to make these creative DIY boutonnieres.

Captain America: An action figure of his favorite superhero or comic book character would look great pinned to his suit with a sprig of wildflowers.
