    I like the idea… but I think I’d like them better if the circles were more even. I love the button in the middle and the fabric flower, but the photo you posted just looks a little lopsided.

    Personally I think they do look feminine. Not all bouts have to be made up of giant flowers,  ours will be made out of peacock feathers. You can google non-traditional bouts to get more ideas

    I said its feminine because imo it looks like something that women would wear on a regular basis. I could attach that to a ribbon and wear it as a head band or as a belt round my waist. 

    But dont let that bother you. I was just stating my honest opinion

    I like the idea, but I think they could use a bit more dimension.

    I’ve seen ones with curly twigs, feathers in earth tones, folded paper…I’d keep looking at different options, but that’s just me.

    Fiance and I knew we weren’t crazy about the idea of floral bouts for the guys, and our florist was totally on board with this. The groomsmen’s bouts will be eucalyptus and rosemary. Very earthy and natural, and they’ll smell phenomenal.

    Hi Kala way – I think a DIY bout is a great idea.  What you thought of kind of looks like a flower for your shoe or something like that.  What about adding a petal to it or maybe something like the pic below?  It looks like buttons wrapped in fabric with a fabric petal?  Just google DIY bout’s for more ideas. 

     

    @lovebird – those are awesome!!

    I actually really like them! I googled the whole UK Remembrance Day thing to find your inspiration pics. Looks like it could be a great pop of color, and definitely a non-traditional bout. Good luck!
