We have decided on succulents and calla lilies for our bouquets and bouts. My fiance loves succulents but does not like how they look in boutonierre form. He prefers calla lilies for the guys. My question is, who does he match with his bout – me or the groomsmen?
My bouquet will be mostly succulents with a few calla lilies sprinkled in. Same with bridesmaids bouquets and mothers corsages. The groom and groomsmen and dads will wear calla lily only bouts. We would like to use two colors of calla lilies – cream and passion fruit orange.
So, would my fiance wear an orange calla lily bout just like his groomsmen are wearing, or would he wear a cream one because my dress is cream and his bow tie/vest is cream. If that’s the case, should my bouquet contain some cream callas as well as orange ones? This may seem super trivial, but my fiance is actually the one who wants to know lol.
Do you have any pictures of your wedding party (or anyones) that can provide an example of who matches who. Thanks!

i think you could have him wear whatever you both like. i think it would be nice if he stood out a little, so cream would look nice.
our guys wore wax flowers which were in my bouquet, and my hubby had mini roses with the wax flowers, which were also in my bouquet.

All of our flowers matched, but we had a small wedding party: the two brides, the dude of honor, and the maid of honor. If you’re doing one type for the men and one for the women, he would most commonly match the men. However, you can really do whatever works for the two of you.
Bridal bouquets. NotFroofy and I had identical ones, except that I carried mine on my right arm and she carried hers on her left.

I think let him wear what he likes! (my personal vote would be ivory calla)

i’d say go with the ivory. in terms of matching people, the only other “guys” he should match according to rule of thumb, is the ring boy. 🙂 of course, it’s your wedding at the end of the day. so do whatever you want! most people don’t really notice these things anyway lol
