Nothing completes a groom’s outfit quite like a stunning boutonniere on the lapel of his tuxedo jacket. It brings a touch of style and a pop of color to his attire. For the most part, boutonnieres are reserved for weddings, proms and special occasions. They can also be worn at weddings by the best man, the groomsmen, the ring bearers and the couple’s respective fathers.

While single flower boutonnieres are still in style, the types of flowers used to create these little masterpieces has grown by leaps and bounds. Long gone is the idea that only carnations and roses are the only suitable choices for a wedding. You can now find a huge selection of flowers, from orchids to hydrangeas to lily of the valley arrangements, and so much more.
