It would be pretty easy to do–keep the fresh mint in a glass of water and the morning of your wedding, hand-tie ribbon around the base and secure it with a pearl stickpin.  This is a really great idea!

I have seen silk herbs at Michaels. I live in Canada though so check Joannes and other craft stores where you live.

I personally wouldn’t do this.  some people are really sensitive to the smell of herbs and it might make them allergic all day if they have to wear herbs so close to their face.

I think it’s a great idea! You can buy real mint at the grocery store or grow it yourself fairly easily. It smells lovely and can be relatively inexpensive. 

Nice choice. 🙂

Personally I would not suggest doing this with the fresh mint, because mint simply won’t live for long. I recently bought some mint in the store, just for the smell and maybe some tea, I put it in the water at home and it wilted in 30 minutes…Idk what wrong I’ve done to it, but it is actually a very sensitive plant.

But if you don’t worry about the smell, I would buy fresh rosemary and mix it with something else (since it’s a little boring by itself). The smell is pretty strong though.

We did fresh rosemary with hypericum berries and they held up really well.

@lkr736:

Is there a rosemary on the picture you posted? Cause I just took the picture of the rosemary in my kitchen and it looks kinda different. Though I liked your picture a lot. I like this idea of green herbs as a boutonniere because it looks very modern, unusual and very YOUNG.

It just gave me another idea of making a boutonniere out of the conifer cone. It might end up looking bulky, but there are small ones as well. I guess it won’t go too well with neither your theme or mine, but I think it would look cool if someone did it.

No, not in a bad sense of a word young. Yeah, I meant rather youthful, green. 

I rather imagine older men wearing a classical rose boutinnieres, it’s a little concervative.

But wearing something green, not usual is a little rebelious, which shows your youthful personality, no matter how old are you.
