Happy Almost-Friday Bees!
Did any of you make/use non-floral bouts? We’ll be doing this, but wanted to see if you had any pics to share. I’ve seen some pics, like the one below… & I’ve read a tutorial here on WB, but would like to see different varieties as well. I love the look of non-florals!
Thanks in advance!

I love this idea and can’t wait to see the pics! But out of laziness we went with flowers for the dads and no bouts for the groomsmen.

OH! I love them all! I so want to do these but I’m afraid they will look totally lame if I tried them myself. Thanks for the inspiration!

Yes, I was super excited about the non-floral boutonnieres but I don’t think anyone “got it.” When we were taking pictures after our ceremony with our bridal party 2 of our GMs looked at the BMs bouquets and were like “are those real flowers?” And they were both like “yeah?” with a puzzled look like “why wouldn’t they be?” And the GMs were like “well ours aren’t real so those must not be real!”
It bothered me because I didn’t use non-floral bouts to save money, I did it because they are different and every real bout I have seen always dies on the grooms coat within a few hours! Oh well, I guess… I just hope not everyone was like “those are cheap, why did she use those?!” They were actually more money than real boutonnieres would have cost!

We’re getting married on the beach and using sand dollars as one of our accents. I found this boutonniere on Etsy and fell in love with immediately!

I love the non-floral bouts! I just have to convince the Mister into them (he’s an old fashioned flower guy). These are all so beautiful!
