We’ve teamed up with the lovely Alice of Flowerfetti to give away ten cups of eco flower confetti to one lucky bride. Once the winner redeems her prize, she’ll ship the confetti one month before the wedding for freshness. You can use this flower confetti for tossing, to sprinkle on tables, or for your flower girl to sprinkle down the path before you. The wildflower confetti consists of dried flowers, rose petals, hydrangea petals, daisies and small pansies, and is fabric safe, eco-friendly, and photographs beautifully. If you wish, you can order petal cones like these, too, for placing your flower confetti.

What Kind of Boutonniere to Pick, and Why

Wondering what kind of boutonniere to pick? We’ll help! Find out which boutonniere style fits in best with your wedding theme. Plus, get more advice on wedding themes in the book, The Inspired Wedding.

Hi, lovelies! My, oh my, it is gorgeous outside. Spring finally got serious with winter and showed him the door, making this the most beautiful spring I’ve seen in some time. Hello, 65 and sunny! Where have you been? Anyway, I hope it’s spring-y where you are, too! Today we’re talking about what kind of boutonniere to pick for your wedding, depending on your theme. When it comes to your wedding theme, it’s all about the details. Simply put: themed details make for a more cohesive event. And today, we’re showing you what kind of boutonniere to pick for your groom and groomsmen. So whether you’re planning a beach wedding, a modern loft-style reception, a vintage ceremony, or you’re tying the knot in a woodland wedding, we’ve got you covered! See which boutonnieres we’ve handpicked just for you, based on a handful of seven delightful themes (you’ll find similar themes in my new book, too, which will help you plan the ultimate themed wedding). Enjoy!

What Kind of Boutonniere to Pick

Let’s begin with finds for your nautical or beach themed wedding.

Nautical / Beach

For a nautical wedding, what kind of boutonniere to pick depends on what colors you’ve selected. If you’re opting for a traditional navy blue and white color palette, a striped boutonniere, like this one, is ideal.

If you’re not sure on color, you can opt for something with a nautical twist: this knotted boutonniere features a figure 8 knot made from jute twine.

Or, a compass boutonniere is a fun alternative to a traditional boutonniere and can be easily attached to his lapel.

If your wedding is specifically beach themed, a starfish boutonniere like this one fits perfectly.

Bohemian

For a bohemian wedding, it’s all about the whimsical and the free-spirited feel. As such, feathers tie in perfectly with your boutonniere choice. This is one of our favorites:

Another option is a fun, whimsical fabric boutonniere… like these!

Modern

For a modern wedding, opt for something minimalist. For instance, here is a flower boutonniere (made of clay):

by parsi

Succulents are always a nice boutonniere option, too. If you’re planning a more elegant modern wedding, skip the burlap and opt for one with a clean, simple look, like this:

by lot450 shop

And remember, for a modern wedding his boutonniere doesn’t have to resemble a traditional boutonniere at all. For instance, check out this button boutonniere we found:

Another example of a modern boutonniere is a lapel pin. We spotted these wood ones here, which is fitting for a modern wedding with a rustic, outdoorsy feel.

And finally, a very minimal dried flower, like this boutonniere made from blue echinops, gives you yet another option:

How to Pick a Boutonniere – Vintage

For a vintage wedding, pick a boutonniere with nostalgic details. One of my favorites: a bountonniere handmade from a page from a vintage book.

This one, too, with a hint of lace:

And this cameo ‘button’ boutonniere is made from vintage finds:

Rustic

When deciding what kind of boutonniere to pick for a rustic wedding, burlap is usually a bride’s number one choice. Add birch flowers and you have a stunning combination, like this:

We talked about succulents as a modern boutonniere option, but succulents can work for rustic weddings, too. Opt for one that has a burlap or jute-wrapped stem for a little more rustic flair.
