A Rose is a Rose…and Boring

I like roses.  I really do. They are– sometimes…just a little overplayed. There are a literally thousands of other flowers out there. If you are looking for ways to instantly give your wedding spice, style, pizzazz or whatever, change your flowers.  I love to see a bride incorporate different flowers into her bouquets and centerpieces. However, a lot of times, the poor guys are overlooked!  The get stuck with the rose and baby breath from Senior Prom.  Get mad, men! Put your foot down! Demand your lillies!  🙂

But seriously changing your boutonnieres is a great way to add a different dynamic to your wedding party design.  The colors can be inspired by the shade of the bridesmaids’ dresses or the groom’s eyes.  Perhaps you can pick a flower that describes how you feel about your husband to be.  Remember, inspiration can come from anywhere.  Also look to incorporate different elements into your boutonniere (translation: ditch the baby’s breath). Include beautiful greenery like Ruskus, palm, Ivy, berries or eucalyptus.   If you want to go ultra trendy, look for beaded wire; for a beach look, add a few shells.  Instead of the usual green floral tape, have your bouts wrapped in coordinating satin.

Here are some great ideas:








You could also opt to do away with boutonnieres altogether, particularly for beach weddings, and instead use?? leis.  They are quite exotic and beautiful all their own.
