15 Boutonnieres Perfect for the Groom and His Groomsmen
Whenever we think of seasonal blooms, our minds tend to wander to bouquets, centerpieces, ceremony décor, and reception designs first. But, what about the gents? We believe the groom and his groomsmen are just as important as the bride and her bridesmaids on their wedding day. The blooms (or otherwise!) he wears should offer just as much of a hint into his personality and shine equally as brightly as anything the bride may carry or wear.
Because the fall is officially underway, we thought we would offer a peek at some of the boutonnieres that stand out the most to us for the season. We found designs featuring pops of bright colors and others that allow deeper hues to take center stage. We also made sure to feature plenty of designs with flowers, as well as a few others that highlight greenery, herbs, or even feathers. No matter the style of your soiree or preferred look of the groom and his gents, we are certain you will find inspiration among the 15 boutonnieres we’ve pulled together for autumn weddings.Continue to 2 of 16 below.

Tip: Consider asking your florist to feature an extra flower for the groom’s boutonniere so his stands out more!Continue to 3 of 16 below.
