Ideas for Boutonnieres for the Groom and Groomsmen
In most weddings, the bride is usually the focus of attention. However, the groom and his groomsmen can also look great in their suits or tuxedos. Choosing a stylish tuxedo or a suit and a nice boutonniere does the trick. Any flower can make a good boutonniere; however, the groom might prefer something meaningful on his lapel. Here are some few ideas for choosing boutonnieres for the groom and the groomsmen.
Herbal Boutonnieres. Colors are very important when deciding on which boutonnieres the grooms will wear. Lavender and lilac are great colors especially if the wedding will be held during summer. However, it is possible for the groom to become hesitant about the idea of wearing purple colors. In such a case, you can go for herbal boutonnieres. A small piece of wood is tied to lavender sprigs with small wooden hearts. These boutonnieres will ensure that your wedding will be classic and elegant.
Feathery Boutonnieres. It is not a must that the boutonnieres worn by the grooms are made of flowers. It is also worth noting that the groom might hesitate to wear a boutonniere made of flowers. In such a case, you can consider going for a simple boutonniere made of feathers. Such a boutonniere can look great especially when the groom has a grey suit or a grey tuxedo.
Tropical Theme. Tropical wedding always has a unique flair associated with them. If you are planning on holding your wedding in a tropical environment, then a pineapple boutonniere will do the trick. Having the grooms wear a pineapple boutonniere ensures that you have a wedding with a unique theme while at the same time appreciating the environment. It also gives your wedding an exotic feel.
Wine-Themed Boutonnieres. It is a well-known fact that wine has always been associated with romance. Selecting wine-themed boutonnieres ensures that your wedding has that romantic aura. These boutonnieres are made of small wooden wine bottles with small petals of flowers attached. They can also be made of coral, which gives your wedding a rustic touch while also impressing wine lovers.
Navy Boutonniere. If you plan to hold your wedding on a beach, you can choose not to use boutonnieres made of flowers and instead decide to embrace the feeling of the sea. Selecting a sea-themed boutonniere can help create that feeling. This is where the navy boutonniere comes into the picture. It is a nautical knot. This boutonniere comes in different colors depending on the color of the suits worn by the grooms. If the suits are blue, you can choose a white navy boutonniere.
Superhero Boutonniere. As mentioned earlier, a boutonniere should reflect the groom’s personality without attracting too much attention. Having a boutonniere with little superhero figures and a mix of flowers speaks a lot about the groom’s personality. This is a great boutonniere to instill personalization into the wedding ceremony.
