Those are too cool! Right now I’m considering lavender (fresh or dried?) boutonnieres, but I am not as awesome as you, clearly. 🙂

I LOVE these. I wish I would have seen something like this when I was picking the bout for my dad. Fishing was our father/daughter activity. My dad and I actually taught Fiance how to fish.

We went really classic. A single black magic rose with some black feathers.

I was really trying to incorporate fly fishing in my boutonnieres. While I didn’t go the actual fly route, I went to my fly tying bench for some inspiration.  Here are what I made for groomsmen and myself.  They were a hit!

In short, lots of trial and error.  I had to submit SEVERAL prototypes, and was still tweaking them the morning of.  Feathers are not easy to work with at all.  I’ve been tying flies for years, and have a pretty good of understanding how binding feathers manipulates their behavior.  I’ll shoot you a PM.

What’s great is that they catch fish too!
