A boutonniere, named after the French word for buttonhole, is usually a single flower or small cluster of flowers that is worn on the left lapel of a man’s formal jacket at weddings, anniversaries, birthday’s, father’s day, holidays, prom, homecoming, church events, and other special occasions.  The flowers are often chosen to match a dress, suit the season, or fit into the color scheme of a wedding or special event.  Don’t be shy…add a little pizzazz to your boutonnieres.  It can be a great conversation piece with the ladies! 

Choosing the Type of Flower

Your flowers will be one of the most photographed details of your wedding or special event, so it's important to pick flowers that truly fit your style.  For a wedding boutonniere, consider matching a rose or blooms from the bridal bouquet.  The flowers don’t need to be perfectly matched, as long as there is a common element.   

Caring for Boutonnieres

Careful composition of your boutonniere with long-lasting flowers will ensure a striking presentation.  Choose fresh, well-hydrated flowers and your boutonniere will look healthy through both the entire wedding & reception.  They can be kept fresh by storing them in a refrigerator before use.
