Hello, I finally manged to logon to this site that I’ve been consulting for so long. I was thinking of boutonnières tonight and I was wondering if the majority of the brides to be have choosen flowers as a boutonnière or do others have different ideas that I would love to hear from. I think it would be really nice to have something different aside from flowers.
Also, could you let me know who you think should have a boutonniere in my wedding party aside from the groom The only member of my family that will attend my wedding is my older brother. My other brother lives in Brazil and he just can’t afford to come to Canada for my wedding. His son however might come. Anyways, I have no flowers girl or maid of honors, etc.
My brother will walk me down the aisle and also act as a witness. My brother in law will also act as a witness for the groom.
I would like to get a boutonniere for my brother but I don’t know if I should get one for my brother in law. What do you think? I would love to hear your opinions.

@Lauraine: I would get a boutonniere for all of the men with a role in the wedding. In your case that would include your brother and brother-in-law.
I love personalized boutonnieres. You find little pieces at the craft or dollar store that reflect either the interests of the individual or the theme of the wedding.

We’re doing pink ranunculus boutonnieres with a geranium leaf, as pictured below. Here’s who gets one:

I LOVE PEONIES. I DEFINITELY WANT WHITE AND PINK PEONIES FOR MY BOUQUET AND WHEN THE IDEA WAS SUGGESTED TO HAVE AS A BOUTONNIÈRE FOR THE GROOM I THOUGHT THE IDEA WAS GREAT BUT FOR ONE REASON OR ANOTHER, I DON’T KNOW WHY, BUT WHEN I LOOK AT THE PICTURE HERE, I FIND IT REALLY, REALL FEMININE AND I DON’T KNOW IF HUBBY TO BE WOULD LIKE IT. I THINK I WOULD MAYBE REACT DIFFERENTLY IF THE PEIONIE WAS WHITE.
THANKS FOR POSTING THE PIC THOUGH. I REALLY APPRECIATE IT.

@Lauraine: Peonies are too large for a boutonniere anyhow. Floral boutonnieres, even pink floral boutonnieres are not too feminine. Men who are comfortable with their masculinity can wear anything.
