There’s a growing trend in the world of wedding flowers for natural buttonholes, or boutonnières as they’re also known. So, in today’s Wedding Wednesday blog post, I thought I’d share with you some beautiful examples, which I’ve come across recently.
Traditionally, stems are wired and then covered with tape as shown here. But with natural buttonholes, there’s no wiring and the stems are left exposed. Mirroring the ‘just picked from the garden’ look, it’s a much more informal style.
The flowers and foliage are usually tied with ribbon, string, twine or bindwire, as you’ll see in the examples below.
Traditionally, the buttonholes for the bridal party are all the same. But, as you can see in the image immediately above, with this trend, sometimes different flowers and foliage are used.
So, if you’re a bride-to-be or a florist, I hope today’s post has given you lots of inspiration.
