Popular Flowers for Boutonnieres
You should remember that your special small bouquet is very gentle, it has no access to water, that’s why it is important to choose flowers that will last at least a day without water. Try to listen and discuss all those moments with your florist. Also, florist should explain to you that if you want to choose a large bloom, it’s not a smart decision, because it can wilt faster and look weird and not appropriate on your tuxedo or suit jacket. In our floral studio we prefer to use the following flowers:
- Spray roses: rose is a flower that stays for love, and it is the most requested flower for boutonniere. With many blooms on one stem, that come in a big range of colors from soft pastel to bright and vibrant, giving you and the florist many options to choose from. The most popular colors are white, red, and pink. With an atlas bow of your choice it will look fantastic. If you prefer classic, it is definitely your flower.
- Ranunculus: this flower is similar to peony, but not so gentle, but the same delicate. What we like about ranunculus is that it can be found in a smaller size and there are so many colors to choose from. Usually, people who don’t like or are tired of a classic style prefer ranunculus. These guys like to be seen and noticed by their style. It comes in many colors like red, white, orange, bright and pale pink.
- Lisianthus: this choice may look very delicate but it is not true. It has a great vase life and is very good for boutonnieres as well. The most popular colors are purple, white and pink.
- Wax Flower: It`s soft small blooms, usually come in pink or white colors, very often used in a boutonniere like fillers.
How to Pick Boutonnieres for Prom
There are so many holidays in May and June. It's Mother's Day, Father’s Day, and the end of a school year celebration - Proms! It is an evening that students will remember for the rest of their life. And it’s so important to look and feel stunning on that day. And we will be more than happy to help you with that. So, when you decide to go to Prom, and already know what you are going to wear, it is time to discuss with your date about what colors she chooses. Because traditionally the boutonniere and the date wrist bracelet should match each other and your outfits. For example, if she wears a pink dress, she wants to complement the outfit with pink corsage. We recommend using the same flowers and bow for boutonniere as well.
How to Pick Boutonnieres for Wedding
Boutonnieres for weddings are hand crafted from different types of fresh flowers on the big day or one day in advance. It’s usually one bloom with fillers and greens or small flower bouquet. It is totally fine to pick it up one day before your wedding and fridge it in its original package that we will provide for you. Do you know that when the groom wears the boutonniere on the left side of his suit right above the heart, it says about a romantic symbol of the groom’s ties to his bride? Although this mini bouquet is small, it can make a big statement. We recommend you to match the boutonniere to the bridal bouquet, and to all the other decorations, if possible.
