Hi, loves! Today we’re talking about boutonnieres for groomsmen. You’ve seen traditional (i.e. floral) boutonnieres before, but we wanted to show you something different, something creative…and yes, something handcrafted. We’ve spent a looooong time digging through endless pages and web searches and Etsy shops to bring you thirty of the most unique boutonniere ideas on the web. There’s a little something here for everyone including insanely creative succulent boutonnieres, woodland animal lapel pins, sola flowers, ‘carved’ wood pins, pinwheel boutonnieres, and more. We’ve found boutonnieres made from some of the most interesting accents from natural wood to brewing hops. It’s a pretty incredible list and you’re going to love what we’ve found! Enjoy! ↓
