The French Bouquet Blog
inspiring wedding & event florals

Personal Wedding Flower Week here on The French Bouquet Blog has focused on the ladies so far– Monday it was all about Bridal Bouuqets. Yesterday we chatted about Bridesmaid Bouquets. Today we’re talking about the Gents! We’re sending some flower love to the boys today with some fabulous Boutonnieres!

We’ll be honest– when we meet with our adorable brides, with the Martha Stewart Wedding magazines, the Preston Bailey books, and the snippets of magazine photos, ribbons, materials, and a couple of vases all splayed out on the table, the first thing out of our brides’ mouths is not, “Let’s talk about Boutonnieres!” In fact, it’s not the second, or the third, or even the fourth item on the list. (Let’s face it, who wouldn’t want to chat about the gorgeous bouquets, the amazing centerpieces, and fun floral details first?!)

But, eventually, the topic of the dear, sweet Groom comes up and it’s time to start thinking about his floral embellishment, as well as all of the other Boutonnieres, and Corsages, too, that you’ll want to add to your floral design list. At The French Bouquet we take a very customized, one-of-a-kind and fresh approach to each and every one of our floral designs. From hand-tying the most stunning and detailed bridal bouquet, all the way to the dainty little ribbon tied at the base of the rose bud Boutonniere! Quality and an eye for detail and design is what we’re all about, so sharing our floral love and passion for the gentlemen of the wedding is a natural and a must!

We hope to inspire you with some of these super fab Boutonnieres today! You can go as simple and sleek as a white Calla Lily or a little Rose Bud with some Hypericum Berry accents. Or, we can get really creative and design an over-the-top unique Boutonniere complete with some sprigs of Wheat, Wellington Spray Roses, and vintage Blue Thistle Globes, for example!
