    I love it! So cute! My fave is the one you said is one of your faves.

    I’m trying to decided what to do with my bouquet.  We’re having our ceremony in a church in Miami and then we’re having our reception on a Carnival cruise ship.  The thing is, customs won’t let you bring fresh flowers aboard the ship so I don’t know what to do.  Either I’ll have a fresh flower bouqet just to walk down the aisle with and I’ll have to toss it before getting on the ship, oooor maybe I can do a button bouqet also.  Hmmm… Great point about being able to keep it forever too. You’ve given me something to think about. Thanks!

    But for my bridesmaids, I’m just doing a clutch.  It’ll save us money and they’ll have something nice to keep too.  I’m not even worrying about boutonnieres for the groomsmen though.  I’m sure they don’t care so why spend the extra moulah, right?

    It’s not that I don’t like flowers, but I LOVE the alternatives!

    The Button bouquets are very cute & I think will be one of those details people talk about (in a good way) at your wedding. 

    We’re using silk fans instead of bouquets~ I love it and I only had one person act surprised by that (and I think she just didnt know what I would do for a bouquet toss since it would be dangerous to throw a fan! After I explained that we were skipping the tosses anyway, she seemed happier about the fans.)

    I loved the button bouquets, but we went with felt and button combination for the colors and I LOVED them!!  =)  Ours were from etsy seller reallybadkitty  I don’t have our pro pics back yet, but here is are two from the wedding (sorry I don’t have a close up…)

    I have not finished mine yet, but here is what it will look like.  I am considering putting one single flower in the middle, but I am not sure yet.  I am also doing the lapels.

    If the weather cooperates and we get to have our ceremony outside, I’ll be carrying a fur muff. If it’s indoors, I’ll carry a bouquet of baby’s breath.

    I am considering something different, but I am not sure yet.  I actually thought about using this:

    A little different, I know, but I have hippy roots.  I would love to fill it with flowers.  I would like the contrast with my formal designer dress.

    I love the button bouquet idea and I’m strongly considering it, especially since we are traveling out of state for our wedding.  It’d be nice to have it all ready and take it with us instead of having to worry about finding flowers in a strange town once we are up there.

    On the other hand I’m torn.  I like flowers!  So I am thinking of some sort of mix..?  I dunno. 

    Oh then again it would be super cute to have our DD (flower girl) hand out button “flowers” or pins or similar instead of passing out real flowers as we were thinking (the church is strict about petals and so forth)…

    Now I’m all super inspired!  I have a question though; if you DIY, where do you get all the buttons?  I am just wondering if it wouldn’t get costly.  I was pricing buttons the other day to maybe swap out buttons on a wedding gown and yikes!  I was looking at vintage or vintage styled jeweled ones and they were not cheap!
