When a person thinks of wedding flowers, the boutonnière often gets overlooked for the bridal bouquet or wedding centerpieces, but we think the bout is just as important! Boutonnières add serious style to the groom and groomsmen and tie the whole look together. Traditionally, the groom wears a flower from the bride’s bouquet as a symbol of unity and affection. Worn above the heart, bouts are a sweet way to symbolize love and partnership. Read on to see 10 of our favorite bout looks and to get the boutonnière lowdown from a Missoula Florist!
Bout Inspo from a Missoula Florist – 10 Looks We Love
1. Poppies & Rosemary
For a clean, fresh take on the boutonnière, look no further than blush colored poppies and a sprig of rosemary!
2. Blue Thistle, Dusty Miller
Shades of yellow, blue, and green make these fun boutonnières really pop! Perfect for a jewel-toned barn wedding.
Using different varieties of eucalyptus (or another greenery) creates a natural vibe that is both striking and affordable!
4. Single Bright Bloom
A bright pinky-red bloom front-and-center contrasts beautifully with the groom’s golden tie.
5. Ranunculus & Greenery
Papery ranunculi, in shades of white and burgundy, look stylish and sharp against this groom’s bright blue suit.
6. Soft and Romantic
A mix of hydrangea, roses, and greenery (all in muted tones) creates a soft and romantic vibe that we absolutely adore.
Did you know that succulents can be incorporated into a boutonnière for a modern and fresh take on a classic!?
Using the sunny, yellow globe-shaped bloom, Craspedia, creates a stunning and whimsical statement.
9. Dried Flowers
During the Winter months when fresh flowers aren’t in season, dried flowers, such as lavender, are a rustic and eco-friendly way to say “I do.”
10. Pop of color
A burnt orange-y bloom accented with goldenrod makes for a striking statement and a fun pop of color.
