My mom and I are attempting to DIY my boutonnieres in an attempt to bring down my florist costs (and because I’ve had a strange obsession with buttons throughout the wedding planning process…)
There are both of our first attempts. The ribbon flower is mom’s, the other one is mine. [attachment=1663095,206827] [attachment=1663095,206828] [attachment=1663095,206830]

I like the one you made. And please tell me that you’re going to call it a “button-niere,” just for kicks.

I like them both!
I think it would be cool if you made them each different for the different guys!

I don’t like the ribbon flower. Looks too childish, but the first one looks modern funky. does that make sense?

@MissMeg: they are both way cute! love the creativity! i do feel like the yellow bow is a bit femmy for the guys. you could add a leaf, front individual wired buttons like the first bout or maybe even a smaller flower? Maybe a smaller yellow flower and the wiring will stand out more as well. just ideas!

The button flowers seem more put together to me

i would do the ribbon flower without the wire or bow. the button flower is really cute too! i would just get rid of the pearl/silver stick thing.
