Here is a great twist on the traditional boutonniere, something special for the groom that you can make as a DIY for the wedding. You can use fabric, ribbon, burlap and lace, to fabricate a boutonniere that matches the look of your wedding. I made this chevron fabric boutonniere with bling for a local bride with a chevron theme, for a tutorial on the chevron ribbon flower.
Here’s what you’ll need to make one:
– Ribbon, fabric strip or burlap
– Button, embellishments, feathers or brooch for the center
– needle and thread
You can also use fabric glue and dots, great for small spaces
For a simple look, you can fashion a ribbon only boutonniere, I found this tutorial in Martha Stewart Weddings very easy to do.
You can have fun adding color, texture and pattern, I love the look of this boutonniere via The Perfect Palette on Pinterest, love the mix of fabrics and the organic touch, fun for spring, summer and also fall weddings.
