5 Beautiful Boutonnieres for Fall Weddings

If you haven’t ordered boutonnieres for your fall wedding, you’re in luck! We’ve found five which your groomsmen will love to wear. These boutonnieres are special: they’re handcrafted without the use of fresh flowers, so you don’t have to keep them cool (or worry about them wilting). They’ll look perfect for photos all day and all night — plus, they’ll last forever. We spotted these boutonnieres over at The Sunny Bee and I was instantly smitten with the pine cone bout shown below. I think it is my #1 top pick for fall boutonnieres ever. Quite a tall order, no?
