Since most of our round-ups are geared toward the bride, it’s fun to share some ideas that are just for the groom. As a wedding professional who works with couples day in and day out, decisions are often left up to the bride. You can always “see her” in the details of the big day, but unfortunately the same isn’t always true for the groom. There are a few fun ways to add special details to represent the personality of the groom and one of our favorites is by having unique boutonnieres!

This little detail, pinned to the lapel of the groom, and often his groomsmen, is sometimes overlooked and I’ve seen it cut altogether while trying to control a floral budget. Today we have 15 unique ideas to showcase a groom’s personality and interests. It’s a growing trend to branch out of florals and into personal inspiration in the land of boutonnieres. Everything from food to football and spice to superheroes is represented on the list below. The best part is, you could order a whole set of boutonnieres for a reasonable price on Etsy, or even attempt to DIY one of the below ideas yourself! Which one best represents you or your sweetheart?
