Unique Wedding Boutonnieres and Corsage Ideas

What’s in a boutonniere? According the dictionary, a boutonniere is simply a spray of flowers. But today’s boutonnieres are not just flowers anymore and can include any number of different items to help personalize your wedding style.

Many couples are opting for unconventional items that compliment the colors or theme of the wedding. Berries and feathers have become popular choices.

If you are getting married in the fall, pumpkins, colored leaves and leucadendron can be great additions, especially if your colors are rich, warm, earth tones.
