Sometimes it can seem like the men are afterthoughts to a wedding (even the groom!). The women get the color — the men, if they’re lucky, get a pocket handkerchief, or maybe a cummerbund. The women get the showers and the parties; the men might get a stag. The women get lavish bouquets, the men get boutonnieres.
More than just a rose and a bit of greenery, today’s boutonnieres can be floral, textural, even sculptural. In the words of Shannon Cosgrove-Rivas, owner and head designer at Flourish, they are “a little world unto themselves.”
Take a look through the gallery, and we’re sure you’ll see what she means.
