A bout-iful lesson

It’s time to talk bouts. Or boutonnieres, as they are more correctly known.

The words boutonniere, itself, comes from the French word for buttonhole which is how these little floral accents were traditionally worn – through the lapel buttonhole on the left of a man’s suit. A corsage, is simply the female version of a boutonniere, either pinned to the lady’s clothing or worn on the wrist.

One of the questions we most commonly get asked during wedding consultation is “who should wear a boutonniere?”

At the end of the day, it is entirely up to you. A recommendation is that at minimum you would have the groom, groomsmen, and then direct family members, such as parents, wear one. Some people also opt to include their siblings and grandparents.

As well as being decorative, boutonnieres and corsages also serve the purpose of identifying people of particular significance in your wedding. You may also choose to have these personal flowers made for ring bearers, ushers, MCs and anyone else who has a special role to play in your nuptials.

Boutonnieres are usually made to complement one another. The groom’s boutonniere will be made to suit the bridal bouquet, the groomsmen to match the bridesmaid bouquets and dresses and then all others are made to complement your overall wedding color scheme.

You can be as traditional or as creative as you like when it comes to the design. If you have a specific style in mind, you can show this to your florist. Otherwise, you can leave it in their capable hands safe in the knowledge they will design personal flowers to suit your vision and needs.

A little ray of sunshine

We thought it was time for a splash of color on the blog so today we’re bringing you some recent bouquets and arrangements we’ve designed that have been inspired by a color palette with orange or coral.

Each color can provide a completely different look, be it bright and bold or soft and feminine, depending what other tones it is paired with.

So next time you’re wanting to add a pop of color to the mix, why not give orange a chance and brighten someone’s day.

A touch of whimsy, Part 2.

Following on from our last post of the personal flowers at Tara and Ian’s Brock House garden party wedding, today we’re bringing you images from the rest of their floral decor.

With beautiful style, a love of flowers and an eye for those little extra details, Tara had plenty of wonderful ideas that we relished the opportunity to bring to life.

At the ceremony we created a eucalyptus garland to line either side of the aisle, as well as a feature wreath that hung from the beautiful old tree in front of which the couple said their “I dos” on the lawn.

For the reception the bride and groom’s chairs were adorned with the sweetest floral accent while the centerpieces were a combination of tall and lush arrangements as well as garden-style pedestals and votives in the wedding color scheme.

 

You can now see this wedding in even more beautiful detail on Style Me Pretty.
