My ring bearer is 4, he will NOT be getting a bout, I think its silly. Our wedding party and parents are the only ones getting flowers of any kind. It would be too damn expensive and quite honestly, exhausting to worry about anyone else.

I will be making one for my little ring bearer-he’s about 4 years old too!

we ordered one for our ring bearer, he’s 3. also ushers, grandparents, parents. i think for the preacher, that’s more of a personal pref. it would be nice of you, but not required.

My son is our ring bearer and will have one.  We figure it will be wrecked early (he’ll be 3) but he will match mine and FI’s red roses.  🙂

It is of course a personal preference, but in my experience, unless you are doing photos before your ceremony – it will end up wrecked.  Even if it’s a silk flower, curious hands will fiddle with it and there’s always a chance of sticking themself with the pins. 

For the rest of your family, unless you have lots of time and resources, I would suggest limiting it to parents, grandparents, the wedding party and it would certainly be appropriate for your officiant to have one as well.

Hope that helps!

My nephews 3 and 7 were our ring bearers and you betcha they got bouts! They’re our nephews, they woulda felt left out without a bout while their dad got one. 🙁

We made ours out of green button mums and they were totally fine.

We’re giving ours little pocket squares.  I think bouts will just get messed up.  As far as family goes like you said grandparents and I think parents too.  But not everyone.

14 freaking boutonnières…1 groom, 5 groomsmen, 2 dads, 1 grandpop, 2 ring bearers (nephews), 2 ushers (cousins), 1 reader (uncle).  Ugh.  To save on cost, time and aggravation we are just doing wheat/millet tied in fabric ribbon.  Good luck!
