I found ones on etsy that are silk butterflies that we’re using. The butterflies are symbolic for me and in memory of family members that have passed away.

How about feathers and buttons on burlap?

You don’t actually have to do them. We are not and no one has a problem with it. Do you have a picture of the pearl ones for us to see?

Not sure of your colors, but I’m doing craspedia bouts. They don’t look girly.

And I’ve seen ribbon bouts before like this:

DIY Ribbon Boutonniere

Or you could do:

Or button bouts, old key bouts, if your guy fishes, look up fishing lure bouts. Or you could make paper flowers from old book pages or sheet music.

Or don’t do bouts and have an old Victorian looking handkerchief sticking out of their jacket pocket.

I think boutonnieres can help tie in color themes, and pull the whole look of a bridal party together, but they aren’t a must.  You can def. do really simple ones..

some of these are neat, and then something like this is really simple:

@dayl20:  I think that unless they’re done perfectly with the wedding theme, that they tend to look silly.

@dayl20:  Modern Victorian…look up steampunk weddings and see if you like any of the guys choices. 🙂

I think flowers can go well with many themes but I don’t feel they are needed. I think some of the options above are unique but I would def. go with something that ties into other decor/lady bouquets.

I know you’re talking about no flowers. But we’re doing billy balls.
