Boutonnieres are just as important as the bridal bouquet so make sure to pay special attention when choosing it, with either the bride or the groom (depending on whose the more creative of the two) giving it a personalised touch. Traditionally the boutonniere was a single bloom plucked from the bride’s bouquet and worn on the left lapel, over the groom’s heart.

Nowadays the boutonniere can be anything from a single bloom to fresh sprigs of rosemary, unripened berries or get really creative and go for fabric flowers like these from Martha Stewart or how about this quirky guitar buttonhole from Etsy.  If you fancy having a go at one yourself then check out crafting queen Martha Stewart’s how to guide to get you on your way.
