Discover our blog on cosy wintery buttonholes for your wedding day and how to achieve the look. 

A very special flower accent, the boutonniere has been worn from back in the day when it portrayed a man’s social status. The word boutonniere derives from the French word “buttonhole”, which refers to buttonhole on a man’s lapel where the small arrangement was placed. Nowadays, buttonholes are primarily used in weddings and are pinned on the tuxedos.

Popular flowers to use for boutonnieres include roses, spray roses, orchids and calla lilies. For more contemporary style, unripe berries such as rubus can be used in conjunction with hypericums or seeded eucalyptus. Acorns, ferns, wheat, spruce, feathers and even shellfish can be used combined with small flowers for a winter wedding. Continue reading to find inspiration, along with the recipes of how you can achieve each style:
