We’re doing colorful pocket squares instead of bouts.  Maybe you could do something with ribbons for the moms instead of corsages?

I second the idea of pocket squares. There’s tons of other options for non-floral bouts- is that what you are thinking about?

For the women, I’m thinking of doing brooches/ big pins. Each one would be different, but within the same theme.

Oh, gosh, yes. I agree with the other bees, there is SO much you can do nowadays. I am having a peacock-themed wedding, so all the guys will have peacock feathers as boutonnieres. You could use feathers, buttons, beads, ribbon, leaves. The possibilities are endless.

Check out these links for some alternate ideas. Also a Google search of “boutonniere alternatives” will probably yield some good results.
