20 Quirky Alternative Boutonnieres

There is no end to the ways your wedding can be made as unique as you are. It started with brooch bouquets and alternative wedding cakes and now we are starting to see our gorgeous grooms expressing their personalities by shying away from the traditional floral buttonhole, choosing instead quirky, daring or just darn cute alternative boutonnieres. So if your man, or you, are just not loving colourful floral arrangements, or you are wanting a boutonniere you can keep, or you are trying to watch the pennies, look no further! Whether your style is fun, whimsical, vintage, sophisticated, I have boutonniere inspiration perfect for every theme, scheme and budget……
