Your groom should look every bit as stylish as you on the wedding day, and a great way to make sure he stands out is to have him sport a stylish boutonniere. And while floral bouts are always lovely, let's face it—not all guys are into flowers. So if that's the case with your groom, then opt for a unique, non-floral boutonniere that complements his personality and attire.

Since the greenery trend is here to stay, we love the idea of an all-greens boutonniere. There are so many beautiful varieties available—olive leaves, umbrella ferns, rosemary, sage, ruscus, eucalyptus, to name just a few—and the possibilities are endless. Ask your florist to feature greenery from your bouquet in his boutonniere for a coordinated look; another idea would be to incorporate his interests or hobbies into the design. Say your groom is into home brewing—your florist could source fresh hops to fashion into a boutonniere. Or, perhaps he’s an avid cook—use fresh, fragrant herbs like sage and rosemary in the arrangement as a nod to his skills in the kitchen.

Whatever you both decide, one thing’s for sure—by forgoing the flowers in the boutonnieres, you will definitely save on your floral budget. Now, without further ado, check out some of our favorite all-greenery boutonnieres.
