Button flowers? Make them into necklaces? garland for around the cake table? what’s your wedding theme, i’m sure we can work it in some way!

LOL~~ Have you seen if they float?  You could also put them in the base of vases and nestle floating candles in them or pillar candles, just make sure there’s water in there as well… I’ve never seen a pic of that option…

Formal, hmm? Are you making your own favors or invites? If so, wouldn’t it be cute on whatever enclosure you use to glue a button to it, then on the part that closes/folds down/whatever, you put some gold ribbon on that part and looped it around the button, like the button was holding it closed? ๐Ÿ™‚ If the button looked too casual, you could always just glue down a gold crystal/bead/pearl-type bead over it to make it look a little more formal!

This is a very rough example:

Ooh, you know, my post kind of inspired me… this is going to sound wacky, but what about a clutch for your bms covered in red buttons and gold and red seed beads? with a little creativity i bet it could be really cool…

depending on how many people you have. maybe you could use them on the placecards? 

or use it for a “voting” button on something during the reception. If you guys decide to donate $ in lieu of favors or something, that could be  a good idea too
