have recently become obsessed the brooch bouquet. I have started my collection, but I am so confused on what my groomsmen should wear. I am using a small brooch bouquet for the girls but have no idea what to do for the guys…any ideas??

I had a brooch bouquet, buy my girls had flower bouquets with a brooch on the stems. My husband still wore a regular boutonniere, as did the groomsmen.
If the girls have brooch bouquets as well, the guys can still wear flowers, it’ll look fine. Or if you’re really adventurous, you could make “flowers out of smaller jewelry pieces, like earrings or buttons and make the bouts out of those.

I made these for my guys – everyone loved them and they are super easy to make. I’ve seen some that are a lot more polished, but that wasn’t the look I was personally going for.

@soon2beemrsblount: I was in the same boat! I am making a brooch bouquet, have also started my collection and was looking at the internet like a fool for ideas for the bridesmaids and groomsmen. I have decided on the following: smaller brooch bouquets for the bridesmaids and personalized brooch boutonnieres for the groomsmen. Much like the photo below (sorry about the photo) only with a personal touch. For example Mr.Lizzards bestman is a department of wildlife officer and LOVES to hunt, so I found a deer head with antlers brooch (it’s classy although it doesn’t sound like it) and incorporate the other groomsmens favorite things into their boutonnieres as well. I told Mr.Lizzard to come up with what he wanted on his and he told me a Lego Ninja…um…yeah that probably won’t fly, but I won’t crush his dreams just yet.
There is also a shop on etsy TheRitsyRose that sells some if you don’t want to DIY them. http://www.etsy.com/listing/83803442/set-of-12-vintage-handmade-groom That is where the one from above is and I love it!
Hope that helps!
