Yes, the boutonniere small, but it plays a big part in weddings. Most importantly, a boutonniere demonstrates the tie the groom has to the bride. He’s “wearing his lady’s colors,” a tradition born back in Medieval days when knights went off to battle with a scarf or a flower. The boutonniere also helps weave the wedding’s color theme.
In search of the latest trends in boutonnieres, we asked Jacques Flower Shop in Manchester what couples were looking for this year. Designer Jessica Thompson came up with five, all of them absolutely gorgeous.
This charming English Garden boutonniere is made up of Dutch helleborus, ginestra, blue veronica, spray roses, parvifolia eucalyptus and silver dollar eucalyptus.
If you want Glam, this has it. It features a burgundy mini calla, lily grass and silver dollar eucalyptus, with metallic accents.
Perfect for spring, this boutonniere has a Dutch double tulip as a centerpiece, surrounded by blue delphinium, green “mojito” hydrangea, myrtle and Italian ruscus.
If Classic is your style, this boutonniere is the one. It has a blush “pink mondial” rose with dusty miller and seeded eucalyptus.
For a Rustic wedding, this boutonniere of echeveria succulent and assorted eucalyptus is just right.
