Boutonniere

Just about any bloom will work for your groom's wedding boutonnière, but why stick with predictable picks? Luckily, there's no shortage of ideas. But how do you pick the perfect wedding boutonnière that will earn your guy's seal of approval and still feel like a cohesive part of your floral design?

What Is a Boutonnière?

A boutonnière is a floral accessory worn on the lapel of a tux or suit jacket for special occasions such as weddings.  

Start with the color. White, green, and yellow are all popular shades for the groom's bout. Another great way to balance out his boutonniere is with the addition of bold greenery. Fresh herbs, leafy greens, or a modern succulent are all great additions to softer hued flowers—this way, you can feel free to pick a colorful bloom. Or go with one large succulent, a cluster of greens or berries, or a barely-there off-white cluster of nontraditional wedding flowers—we like perennial astilbe or clematis—for a look that expresses a more modern style.

More and more couples are swapping out the traditional floral wedding boutonnière in place of something more understated. Pick a cool pin, like a mustache or arrows, or a meaningful family heirloom, like a vintage key, and accent it with pale-hued berries, wheat, or greens for a look that he'll surely love.

In an effort to help you and your husband-to-be select the perfect boutonnière, we rounded up 59 great ideas that you two are sure to love.
