7+ Boutonniere Alternative ideas For The Groom 

“Two Souls but a single thought, 
Two hearts that beat as one.” - John Keats

The famous poet penned these beautiful words about the connection between bride and groom many years ago, and they continue to ring true today, The groom and bride are partners, joined in so many ways both in love and in physical reminders throughout the wedding! Everything from their rings to their matching flowers is designed to symbolize the connection between the two. However, your groom can still show off some of his own personality with the ultimate boutonniere that connects him to his passions and to his spouse to be!

So, keep them engaged…Let them have fun by getting involved with the planning and choosing the type of boutonniere they want to wear. Let their personalities shine throughout the wedding with yours. Whatever their likes are (cards, tech-geek, instruments, just to name a three) let it be part of the wedding theme.

For example, instead of having the traditional boutonniere flowers, have it reflect his taste, style/personality. If he likes sports have his boutonniere show just that. Whether it's golf, football, soccer, baseball, etc., let them have fun with their desired pick; you can always add the chosen wedding color to his boutonniere. So, check out these crazy and unique ideas!
